Children In The Wilderness

This project is run in Malawi by Central African Wilderness Safaris. Children in the Wilderness was initially a brainchild inspired by the Hollywood actor Paul Newman, together with Wilderness Safaris, and is a unique experience for some of Malawi's most underprivileged/ underserved children, namely those orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The goals of the Children in the Wilderness program are to increase awareness around conservation and ecological issues critical to Malawi; educate around health and hygiene issues; and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention education. All of our programming works on developing their resilience, independence and self-esteem, thus increasing their potential to not just survive into adulthood, but to thrive.

The commitment and support, to date, from local, national and international organizations, as well as our guests, has resulted in our ability to expand the programme this year into both Malawi and South Africa. With continued success we will eventually incorporate this potentially life-changing experience into every country in southern Africa where Wilderness operates.
