Petrus Lazarus from Namibia first joined Children in the Wilderness (CITW) in 2004 as a camper and is proud of his involvement in the programme. He feels that it taught him much about careers, HIV/AIDS awareness and loving the environment, and helped him to explore his beautiful country.
Petrus progressed through the Wilderness Safaris Namibia training system, to become arguably the most qualified barman in Namibia. He has an honours degree in Tourism and Hospitality from the International University of Management. He is currently working as a supervisor for Wilderness Air, a job he is truly passionate about.
“CITW encouraged me to study hard and I’m today an educated person. I am presently working a supervisor for Wilderness Air and I am based at Doro Nawas airstrip. I am grateful to CITW for making my dream come true”. – Lazarus.
