GHANA

£2,995.00 | 28 Nights

GHANA

Ghana is a vibrant, beautiful country with friendly people, stunning landscapes and unspoilt beaches. Dancing and drumming are central to the way of life, and you are never far from a beating drum.

Youth Development Programmes - Ghana

If you are looking to experience vibrant and rural West Africa, we think Ghana is the destination for you.

In the rural Volta region, the main industries are agriculture and fishing, and many children work alongside their parents to bring in an income instead of receiving an education. We are working with our partner schools to improve their facilities and encourage more children to attend school from an earlier age.

Youth Development Programme - Volta Adventure Weekend, Ghana

This trip includes three adventure activities, ensuring you experience everything your destination has to offer. Stay overnight at the tranquil Keta Lagoon, learn about Ghana’s turbulent history on our Cape Coast Adventure Weekend, and experience Ghana’s wild side with our Volta Adventure Weekend. What more could you want?!

KENYA

£2,045.00 | 13 Nights

KENYA

Kenya is a country of real contrasts, with breathtaking scenery, incredible wildlife, and a popular tourism industry on one hand, and extreme poverty on the other.

Youth Development Programmes - Kenya

If you’re looking to experience urban Africa, Kenya is your destination.

We work in Nakuru, Kenya’s fourth largest city, where agriculture, manufacturing and tourism are the backbone of the economy. In the communities where we work, the cost of an education is out of reach for many, so we partner with schools that have been set up by local people to give children the chance of a better future.

Youth Development Programme - Rift Valley Adventure Day, Kenya

Included in your trip is our famous Rift Valley Adventure Day, which includes a safari drive through Lake Nakuru National Park, a hike down Thomson Falls, and a visit to the Equator.

ZANZIBAR

£2,195.00 | 13 Nights

ZANZIBAR

Zanzibar, an archipelago off the coast of Tanzania, is world famous among travellers and tourists for its white sandy beaches and historic Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Youth Development Programmes - Zanzibar

If you’re looking for a taste of island life, coupled with impactful volunteering, historic Zanzibar is the place for you.

Known as the ‘Spice Island’, Zanzibar is alive with incredible smells and sounds. However, behind the idyllic scenery lies a different story. Life can be very difficult, and overcrowding in schools poses a serious challenge. We show you the realities of life for many on this beautiful island.

Included in your trip is the chance to explore the narrow streets of historic Stone Town, visit a local spice farm, and stay the night in a spectacular beach resort on our Taste of Zanzibar Weekend.
