When we travel responsibly, we support directly the local families and their children!
Across sub-Saharan Africa, families are living in poverty. When you are struggling to survive, education is not a priority. School fees are expensive, and so children are forced to drop out of school and earn a living. The vicious cycle continues.
But, to support a family business means that you help parents increase their income.
Thus, they are able to pay school fees and provide vital medicine, food and clean water.
