The Mashatu Game Reserve supports Children in the Wilderness Limpopo Valley, a non-profit organization that serves children from 8 through 18 years of age. Children of the Wilderness is a camp that aims to facilitate sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Africa.
Children of the Wilderness also runs Eco-Clubs and follow-up programmes at schools, within the rural communities that live on the edges of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
