The CITW programme currently operates in six countries: Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
In Botswana, the programme began in 2001 and currently about five students benefited from the programme and one is employed with Wilderness Safaris while three are being trained as CITW Eco-Club Coordinators who would be based in their villages.
According to a press release from the company, the partnership between CITW and SAWC began in 2016 with the objective of helping learners from rural areas who have completed their studies to build on their environmental education so they can increase their chances of employment or further their studies in the relevant environmental conservation space.
Each year, CITW works together with SAWC to select a group of deserving students from the CITW Youth Environmental Stewardship (YES) programme who would participate in the course.

According to CITW General Manager, Sarah Omura, "We are in a unique position on camp, a position where we can have a real impact on the lives of the children.
Children in the Wilderness provides contact information for organisations like Lifeline/Childline and the Women and Child Protection Unit in their area, but as the girls begin to understand that they have rights, CITW also works with them to come up with their own solutions.
In the week long CITW camps, a group of approximately twenty-four children, ages 10-16, come together from all over Namibia.
According to Connie, "Research has shown that for orphaned and vulnerable children, the most important factor contributing to their resilience is a long term relationship with a caring, committed adult." CITW thus strives to develop long-term relationships with these children and to continue to support them beyond their one week camp experience.
The highlight of CITW's follow-up programme is another camp.
