Travel and community support in Uganda
Across the world, many travelers are flooding in the Pearl of Africa to explore her beauty. However most of the Uganda’s prime attractions are situated in the remote areas and surrounded by the local communities. This implies that the effects of tourism are continuously growing everyday. We have a significant responsibility and opportunity to not only minimize the negative consequences of tourism, but make a long-lasting positive impact too. From protecting the environment and its animals, to educating others and supporting the communities you visit. This means being a responsible tourist you can change the world as you travel.
On your Uganda safari, you can choose to be specific whether you would love to volunteer in rural or urban areas, as long as you clearly communicate with us at the time of booking and let us know your ideal preference.
Sponsor a child
The effect of HIV has greatly affected the rural areas of Uganda, on this note many children are left orphans, some children have lost one or both parents. In this situation, the First born children are left with a big responsibility to take care of their siblings.
Many associations have come up with orphan homes, built schools and hospitals. Therefore, you can change someone’s life by offering financial assistance through sponsoring a child in school. There are children, especially Orphans who cannot afford school fees or even scholastic materials to push them through school. Any little help you offer has a tremendous impact on the child’s life and future. Sponsorship involves paying school fees or even offering scholastic materials such as books, pens, pencils, shoes and beddings among others.
Empowerment of the rural women
In most rural areas, it is mainly the women to cater for the basic needs of the family as majority of their husbands are either drunkards or polygamists. However, if these women are given an opportunity to earn their own income, it not only transforms their families but the nation at large since their standard of living also improves. It is for this reason that the women have to be equipped with sustainable income generating activities and entrepreneurial skills that provide them with positive choices for themselves and their families in the areas of economic development, education and health care among others. For more information about some of the outreach programs and how to get involved, you can contact this Company and you will be able to bring a smile in someone’s face.
