Like you may have heard somewhere, a significant part of our team is based on African ground. We are on the ground, and while we welcome everyone with open arms, there’s one person who isn’t welcome. Who’s that? The middleman! Why? Because that guy just swallows up money that could have gone directly to the local population! As residents of this beautiful continent, we can connect directly with our amazing partners and ensure that the money goes where it belongs.
Our partners are the beating heart of our organisation. They are the ones who drive you around, guide you, and introduce you to their families and friends. We don’t just aim to collaborate; we’re also building a real business with our partners. We provide them with training so they know what to expect, and we even assist them in registering and financing their own businesses. This way, they aren’t solely dependent on our clients but can truly engage in sustainable entrepreneurship.
Before you embark on your journey to Africa, we’d like to introduce you to some of our incredible partners. They are eager to welcome you and share the most unforgettable adventures together!
