Children in the Wilderness (CITW) has partnered with professional soccer player, Gordon Gilbert to launch Soccer in the Wilderness – an inspirational programme combining the fun of sport with education to raise environmental awareness in local communities in Zimbabwe and Zambia.


Gordon has played professionally for Kaizer Chiefs, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Moroka Swallows, to name a few, and is a wildlife enthusiast committed to making a difference. From 5 to 9 November 2013, the inaugural Soccer in the Wilderness clinics took place at Sinde Football Club, Twabuka Middle School and with Wilderness Safaris’ staff at Toka Leya Camp in Zambia and Jabulani Primary School in Zimbabwe.
