In an effort to practicing responsible tourism and to appreciate the role played by the communities, we dedicate a 5% percent of all our net profits in assisting local communities and needy families. This is not limited to communities surrounding the tourist attractions only. Having evolved from poverty stricken Kibera and Mathari slums of Nairobi, the proprietor of Tropical Vacations Inc tries to make a difference in lives of slum dwellers in of Nairobi and the country side.
Our clients make an impact and touches lives directly or indirectly, just by booking with us. Most of our clients are involved in charity work. So at some point in their itinerary, they do propose to visit the orphanages and the community projects we are involved in to either give or pledge financial and spiritual help.
Tropical Vacations Inc and its staff support a broad range of charitable causes and community initiatives. These take many forms; cash, supply of foodstuffs or clothing, hosting of community events or provision of employee-time in the form of visits to orphanages, hospitals, old-people’s homes or mental institutions. We have sponsored several HIV orphaned students in different ways by paying school fees, buying them food, clothing and supporting their families in such ways. We also support selected orphanages that in our view are genuine and are not set up for selfish gains at the expense of the real orphans and needy children. However, as you are aware, the overwhelming number of needy families outweighs the resources sometimes and we may not leave to our word.
