Wonderbag Foundation Donates 500 Wonderbags to Children in the Wilderness

Children in the Wilderness (CITW), the non-profit partner of ecotourism company, Wilderness Safaris, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Wonderbag Foundation, which will see 500 Wonderbags allocated to CITW’s Adult Eco-Club Project. 
 
 
The Wonderbag has been developed to ease some of the social, economic and environmental impacts of living in poverty. It is a portable, non-electric slow-cooker that allows food, which has been brought to boil on a fire, to continue cooking for up to 12 hours after it has been removed from the fuel source. Not only does this make cooking more efficient, but it also reduces the amount of time women in areas of poverty have to cook, thus providing time for more entrepreneurial, productive and healthier activities. This makes it the ideal fit for CITW’s Adult Eco-Clubs, which assist rural community groups with start-up capital and guidance so that they are able to set up their own businesses. 
 
Of the 500 Wonderbags, 100 will go to the Shashe Adult Eco-Club, while the remaining 400 will be distributed to the various other CITW Adult Eco-Clubs in Botswana. The Wonderbags are sold to the Eco-Club for a nominal amount, and they are then able to sell the bags on for enough to pay back this amount, and earn a profit which then goes into supporting the Eco-Club and buying stock for future projects.
