    We engage our community members in sustainable tourism and community driven environmental conservation initiatives that are meant to benefit them as local communities through skills and programs while still contributing to the achievement of the global SDG’s

    Our community work is dedicated to integrating tourism and conservation for sustainable community development. Most importantly we lobby for and market the adaptation of community-based tourism as part of the region’s development agenda.
