Working in collaboration with various donors Children In the Wilderness empowers rural community members in Tsholotsho, Zimbabwe to create self-sustainable projects such as knitting groups. With training provided by CITW volunteers, the mothers and grandmothers gather together to knit scarves, jerseys, handbags, mats, gloves and countless other products for sale to supplement their income so that they can send their children to school.

The Mother Bear Project, an American non-profit organization is dedicated to providing comfort and hope to under privileged children. MBP donates countless hand-knitted teddy bears each year as a gift of love for CITW distribution at their annually run children’s camps.

Recently Zimbabwe received a beautiful parcel from Mother Bear which included countless balls of colourful knitting wool and much needed knitting needles, which will be distributed to the Ziga Community Women’s Knitting Group in Tsholotsho. These materials are a rare commodity for these rural communities, so the ladies will be ecstatic.
