Making Tourism Work for the Poor.....

Volunteer Safaris

Our volunteer program takes many forms and is performed by a wide range of people. Many of our volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work in, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others volunteer on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster. Our programs achieve the following objectives;

i) Economic benefits: activities undertaken by volunteers that would otherwise have to be funded by the state or by private capital, so volunteering adds to the overall economic output of a country and reduces the burden on government spending.

ii) Social Benefits: volunteering helps to build more cohesive communities, fostering greater trust between citizens and developing norms of solidarity and reciprocity that are essential to stable communities.

iii)Individual Career Benefits: graduates can meet people and gain work experience through volunteering, and, it helps school students for scholarships knowing well that the judges are impressed when a resume lists volunteer work.

Our volunteer programs are categorized into five categories as their themes, namely; community development, biodiversity conservation, teaching, working with children’s homes and health care.
