THE AFRICAN IMPACT WAY
Our Mission and Values
PIONEERING RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL IN AFRICA
Our mission is to deliver the best international volunteer experiences in Africa with long-lasting impact for both the communities we work in, as well as the volunteers travelling with us. The values that guide the way we operate as a company and interact with each other and our guests are explained as follows:
courageously lead the way
We challenge ourselves to never stop learning and commit to stretching ourselves beyond the familiar to gain new insights. We consistently look at ways to improve and welcome change.
embrace the journey
We approach our mission positively, with resilience and make achieving our vision a fun experience.
create impact through connections
We invest in creating honest and fruitful connections and relationships with our volunteers, our employees, and with the communities we serve.
We are passionate about shaping peoples’ lives for the better. It is the essence of our culture and the driving force behind everything we do.
umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu
Translated simply, this means that “a person is a person because of other people”. I am because you are, and you are because we are. This is the essence of Ubuntu. This is the philosophy that drives us, as it creates values such as compassion, kindness, and fairness.
