ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT

Uso Africa Safaris allocates a portion of its profits to a number of community-based organizations that address some of Kenya’s greatest challenges.

In addition, we integrate many community organizations into our itineraries, providing clients an opportunity to interact with local people working toward a more prosperous and peaceful community.

Jacaranda Children’s Home

NAKURU
Jacaranda Children’s Home provides a nurturing environment to 25 girls from throughout Kenya with no living parents. The home also maintains a large garden to provide produce for their residents and to sell to nearby hotels and lodges. In partnership with Uso Africa Safaris, our clients spend time at Jacaranda interacting with the residents to learn about a day in life of Kenyan girl, and help out in their big garden.

The hard-working families of Losho raise livestock and host tourists as a primary means of income to help pay for food, school fees and other necessities. In partnership with Uso Africa Safaris, leaders from Losho Village teach clients about their culture through traditional games and dances, and while talking during hillside hikes that provide clients with a fantastic view of the Losho region.

Unity Village

Unity Women’s Village is a safe place for women in Samburu that have endured substantial hardship. They are an example of prosperity when women are extended autonomy and equal rights. In partnership with Uso Africa Safaris, our clients learn beadwork from the women and can assist with small village projects (note: Unity is different than Umoja Village, though they are nearby and it’s possible to visit both).
