The visitors are interacting freely with the local community thereby breaking the racial barriers and hitherto black/white colonial hangovers. Through cultural exchange interviews, both visitor and host learn more about the cultural contrasts, and how the men manage many wives without the usual love hostilities. The men/women will tell/explain the benefits of marrying many wives and traditional reasons of allowing children outside marriage.
The visitor will learn more about real African Rural life as lived by ordinary people in the rural areas and know Africa in its real perspective compared to what is depicted in the International News Media. Through service charges to service providers the local women guides, family elders/fathers, children in the community earn direct income from tourists, hitherto denied them because of being outside the traditional wildlife tour routes.
Through the Village and Local Government Levies and Project Work, the entire community benefit by having the hitherto compulsory contribution project works completed through our programmes. By strictly adhering to proper environmental codes and health conduct throughout our programmes the community gradually psychologically adopt better environmental protection and improved health standards.
The Barbaig live in a very arid dry land walk 10km every day to fetch 20 litres of water for family use and take their cows with them for watering. In our Project Work, we are trying to bring water from 20km away to this Barbaig tribe as sympathy for them because the Government , for years has neglected them as customary nomads. They customary use firewood thus diminishing the forests. With water, they can be advised to replace and plant new trees as environmental protection.
The local community will interact and gain more understanding of the foreign visitors' compassion to help; they also learn various ways of environmental protection and recycling as they see the visitors’ ways of not littering the environment; they understand how visitors love to visit the game parks to view our valuable wild animals. They will also watch and see how these foreigners are donating generously to the projects which do not belong to them and thus gain some insight in donating to charities.
In the schools where we work, we are financing lower carbon stoves using fewer firewood and reducing smoke.
