Pack for a Purpose posted a topic in Organisations and NGOsSince our first post in 2011, Pack for a Purpose has grown to over 485 accommodations and tour companies across the globe with more than 260 being in Africa. We also have seven accommodations and tour companies in India. All of these accommodations and tour companies offer safari experiences, and each of our participants supports local community projects ranging from schools to anti-poaching projects. Our participants focus on five initiatives: education, health, child welfare, animal welfare, and socioeconomic development. Our newly designed website can be searched by destination alone or by initiative. When you choose to become a Pack for a Purpose traveler, the safari you take goes much farther than the miles you travel. By going to our website, you will find the specific needs list for the projects supported by our participants, How to Pack information, everything you need to make each safari more meaningful. Since our inception, Dec. 17, 2009, generous Pack for a Purpose travelers have taken over 40,600 kilos of supplies meeting essential needs in over 60 countries. PfaP travelers have shared their stories on our website and continue to inspire other travelers. Our newly designed website includes our first shop, which includes high-quality Pack for a Purpose merchandise. From T-shirts to hoodies, we've got you covered. A large portion of the sales directly benefit our mission to positively impact communities around the world by assisting travelers who want to take meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit. We encourage you to share the Pack for a Purpose website across your social media and to check back on our website from time to time as we are continually adding new safari locations.

MARA NABOISHO CONSERVANCY - AFRICAN RESPONSIBLE TOURISM AWARD WINNER 2016 The African Responsible Tourism Awards, part of the prestigious World Responsible Tourism Awards, recognizes the best in responsible tourism in Africa. We are delighted to announce that the Mara Naboisho Conservancy in southern Kenya won the overall award for 2016 announced at the World Travel Market Africa on 7th April 2016. Mara Naboisho Conservancy is a partnership between more than five hundred Maasai households and five ecotourism operators, including Asilia Africa. Together, the partners formed a community wildlife conservancy in 2010 which protects over 20,000 hectares of critical wildlife habitat, and is home to our award winning Naboisho and Encounter Mara camps. Gerard Beaton, General Manager at Asilia Africa, was at the forefront of the conservancy’s formation and is a sitting board member. “Mara Naboisho Conservancy’s unique model of partnership and joint decision making is innovative and effective. This recognition by African Responsible Tourism Awards comes as we complete our first five year development phase and all partners involved should be applauded! A lot has been achieved: over 300 new jobs, incomes to over 500 Maasai families and further indirect benefits to approximately 10,000 people,” he said. Out of 25 finalists in a number of categories Mara Naboisho Conservancy was a joint winner with Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the Best for Wildlife Conservation category. “The competition was stiff and we applaud all the organizations that made it to the shortlist,” said Beaton. “For wildlife conservation and human development this is important recognition that will stimulate interest in this model and help move the agenda in Africa forward.” Naboisho Conservancy is indicative of Asilia’s belief that by collaborating with partners and local communities we can conserve Africa’s great wilderness areas for generations to come.
