Splendors of Africa holds onto the dream of voluntourism and is working towards creating partnerships to allow for safe and affordable travel.
Having long realized the value of an appropriate education in creating a better world for all, and driven by a passion to make a difference, not to mention a decade of privately providing financial support to needy families in Kenya to keep their children in school, Splendors of Africa founders felt the need to broaden and deepen their engagement with charitable causes in Kenya. Realizing that their personal resources could do only so much, the idea of exposing the plight of communities living in deprivation and want in Kenya and elsewhere seemed like a good way to promote and tap into their charitable giving.
Splendors of Africa was thus conceived in 2010 as a social enterprise dedicated to promoting and facilitating impact Voluntourism from the USA to Kenya. The aim was to enhance the visitors' African art, cultural and environmental experience within their host communities as they in turn contributed material or other practical benefit to their hosts. Unfortunately, Kenya was soon after caught up in the scourge of international terrorism resulting in negative travel advisories which in turn rendered safe and effective Voluntourism untenable.
Undeterred, Splendors of Africa Inc. was established as a Non Profit Corporation in the USA as a platform for dynamic partnerships to further the noble aim of creating a world where all people have opportunity and capacity to participate in steering their social, economic and environmental factors by being appropriately empowered.
