At the foundation of all of our impact initiatives is the recognition of indigenous peoples and local communities as conservation leaders. As a result, most of our impact outcomes are aimed at supporting and empowering our community partners.
As mentioned, for years Children in the Wilderness (CITW) has been working with educational institutes and governments to create a curriculum in schools that brings attention to conservation initiatives, creating future eco guardians of our Earth. CITW donations also sponsor student scholarships for learners to attend school, as well as purchase school uniforms and materials. Building more schools in local communities and donating equipment such as school desks, chairs, computers and books is also essential to our way of giving back.
