A conservation and youth programme, Children in the Wilderness (CITW), was the main beneficiary of the first Amazing Thailand Golf Day held at the Zwartkop Country Club in mid-December 2013. An amount of R6 500.00 was raised through the raffle of a grand prize which was an eight-day trip for two to Thailand. Among the 120 golfers who played were His Excellency Ambassador of Thailand Mr Voradet Viravakin and leading South African travel trade representatives.

The first Amazing Thailand Golf Day was organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, which is in South Africa represented by Lesley Simpson Communications. The company’s Managing Director, Lesley Simpson, handed over the funds raised to CITW’s Chairman, Russel Friedman and Regional Project Director, Dr Sue Snyman.

Children in the Wilderness is a non-profit organisation supported by ecotourism company Wilderness Safaris. This environmental and life-skills educational programme, which works with rural children in Africa, focuses on the next generation of decision-makers to inspire them to care of their natural heritage and to become the custodians of these areas in the future.
