CONSERVATION TOURISM GIVING HOPE TO VULNERABLE ORPHANS
Make Your travel meaningful by assisting vulnerable orphans in the Hwange community
African Safari Walks is in partnership with Good Hope Mothers Orphanage in Hwange community helping to feed and provide basic education to vulnerable orphans through using the tourism dollar.
Good Hope Mothers Orphanage was started in 2005 by three women, mothers themselves, who saw an urgent need and dedicated themselves to supporting local children who have endured heart-breaking experiences of mistreatment or abandonment.
Good Hope Mothers initially provided children with meals, but quickly understood they needed to expand to providing clothing, education, and help to access counselling. Their work has reduced dropouts from school, reduced malnutrition, and contributed to an increase in positive behavior.
From the first 23 children they reached out to, the mothers are now supporting over 600 children and are in constant need of resources and donations to support their ongoing work and enable them to build new facilities.
African Safari Walks is supporting Good Hope Mothers to empower these children with nutrition and basic education, equipping them to build sustainable careers and become positive society leaders in future.
When conservation tourism, with the support of African Safari Walks’ Responsible Travel program, is harnessed to help vulnerable children, it creates awareness in both the communities adjacent to Hwange National Park and for policy makers in high offices. It highlights urgent social need, and at the same time effectively promotes the conservation and protection of wildlife as a natural resource for future generations.
At African Safari Walks we invite and encourage our guests to stop by and interact with the Good Hope Mothers Orphans in Hwange community and be able to personally support the work of Good Hope Mothers. All contributions are gratefully received and appreciated.
This is a wonderful way for our guests to give back to the Hwange region in such a positive way, making the world a better place.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the project we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
