Children in the Wilderness

Children in the Wilderness Malawi’s camp programme will celebrate 15 years of success this year. Each year, CAWS closes down one of its camps to paying guests, to host 70 children at three one-week camps. The camps are held at Chintheche Inn or Mvuu Camp and follow a comprehensive curriculum and a variety of activities are conducted to promote learning whilst instilling team work and confidence in the young participants.

Insight, care and commitment are required to conserve Africa’s pristine wilderness and wildlife areas. If we are to ensure that these places continue to exist – in this generation and those to come – we need the children who call these areas home, to understand the importance of conservation and its relevance in their lives. Hence, our Children in the Wilderness programme: an environmental and life skills educational programme for children, focuses on the next generation of decision-makers; inspiring them to care for their natural heritage and to become the custodians of these areas in the future.

We are also proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for our project/projects. Children in the Wilderness is a non-profit organization supported by ecotourism company Wilderness Safaris and CAWS in Malawi, to facilitate sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Africa.
