A Year of Gratitude: The Impact of Giving with Fair Trade Safaris
As 2023 draws to a close, we at Fair Trade Safaris are taking a moment to reflect on the incredible impact we’ve made together with our guests. This past year, our combined efforts have seen $100,000 in donations reach the hands of vital organizations in the US and across Africa. We are deeply thankful for the generosity that has allowed us to contribute to these causes and for the opportunity to share this journey with so many compassionate travelers.
Supporting Growth and Healing: The Teddy Bear Foundation and SOS Children’s Village
We began by partnering with The Teddy Bear Foundation, providing critical support to children in need of care and protection in South Africa. It’s been a privilege to help them expand their reach, and we’re grateful to have played a part in their crucial work. Similarly, at SOS Children’s Village, our contributions have helped open a new computer lab, offering a vital resource for learning and growth. We’re inspired by the resilience of these children and proud to support their education.
Empowering the Leaders of Tomorrow: Al Muntazir International School and Global Sojourns Giving Circle
Education has been a key focus for us, and with your help, we’ve sponsored a deserving student at Al Muntazir International School, ensuring she has the tools to succeed. Our partnership with the Global Sojourns Giving Circle has further allowed us to empower and nurture young minds, especially girls, across the continent. We’re incredibly grateful for the ability to have such a profound effect on the lives of these young individuals.
Connecting Communities: Uthando
Through our work with Uthando, we’ve seen firsthand how travel can be a force for good. We are thankful for the opportunity to connect our guests with local communities and see these connections’ tangible benefits. Our contributions are helping to foster a greater understanding and a shared sense of humanity.
Promoting Emotional Well-being: The Kindness Campaign
The Kindness Campaign’s dedication to promoting emotional health is close to our hearts. This year, we’ve been able to support their mission to combat bullying, loneliness, and isolation. We’re thankful for the opportunity to help spread kindness and empathy through their work.
Looking back on 2023, we’re filled with gratitude for our guests’ trust in us and the incredible outcomes we’ve achieved together. Every safari, every donation, and every shared story contributes to a larger picture of hope and positive change. Thank you for being part of our Fair Trade Safaris family and for helping us make a difference in so many lives.
As we look ahead, we invite you to continue this rewarding journey with us. Whether it’s through booking a safari, learning more about our partner organizations, or making a contribution, your involvement makes a world of difference. Join us in making 2024 another year of impactful travel and heartfelt giving.
