Safari to Support Girls’ Literacy in Africa

For some reason, African Safari trips have lately been coming up in conversation around me much more than usual. I cherish the memories of my trip to South Africa and Zambia, and can’t wait to get back, repeatedly. There seems to be something in the air/season as so many people I know are all talking about going for the first time , or returning soon. I suspect it is more than just the ubiquitous attention on the World Cup in South Africa, but perhaps that is why the destination is top of mind now, in particular.

Africa Adventure Consultants and AfricAid are teaming up to provide you an opportunity to have a trip-of-a-lifetime safari (and believe me, you will never forget the safari experience) while contributing to the Kisa Project for scholarship and leadership training for young African women. The portion of your safari cost that is donated will provide a two-year scholarship for one girl’s education. AfricAid provides funding for scholarships, school building projects, leadership training, vocational and teacher training, school supplies, school lunch programs, and it works in conjunction with the local initiatives of Tanzanians and other African leaders committed to education.

This 13-day In-Depth Cultural Experience & Wildlife Safari is in Tanzania and boasts game viewing in Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti parks, village visits to AfricAid-supported schools, accommodations in luxury tented and mobile camps and lodges, meals, land transfers and more. The wildlife experience will be one of your life’s treasures—I promise—and the difference you make, directly, in the life of a young woman will, in fact, impact our entire world. Opening a door in this way ushers a young woman to greatness, and THAT is worthwhile whether you get to see the Big 5 or not.

  1. Hi there – I found you when looking for bloggers focused on girls education. We are trying to win $20,000 to educate girls in Rwanda and would love if you would share this link on your blog! http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/charities/263503023-rwanda-girls-initiative
