Visit our programmes
Visiting charitable programmes can be a delicate subject. Our clients are always interested to meet supporters, but we're not in the business of 'fixing' the poor. It’s not so much ‘Go & Give’, more ‘Learn and Return’.
We are able to take a small number of key supporters and potential advocates to visit our partners and meet clients each year. We’d like to take every supporter, but inevitably we have to work out whether this is best for you and for our partners.
To find out about upcoming trips, please feel free to contact the team.
"I FEEL THAT 'HUMBLED' IS OFTEN A MISUSED AND THEREFORE DEVALUED TERM - BUT I CAN SAY THAT ON EVERY STEP OF MY TIME IN KENYA I FELT HUMBLED BY THE KINDNESS, HOSPITALITY AND GENEROSITY OF EVERYONE I CAME ACROSS."
- EDMUND WILDISH
We welcome requests for groups to visit our programmes, whether it is comprised of members of a company, school, church, or other organisation.
Whether you decide to go to Tanzanian or Kenya, it is a powerful experience for any group of people seeking to develop long-term links with a community in East Africa.
