Responsible tourism: Medical volunteering in Kenya

Environment

The health of our oceans, rivers and forests is crucial to our survival and wellbeing, yet unsustainable human activities are putting increasing pressure on our planet. As a company, we are constantly developing new and innovative solutions to tackle the challenges posed by climate change through exploration of sustainable ‘green’ options. Our environmental projects protect the environment and help people use the resources they need without compromising them for future generations.

As an organisation, we are carbon neutral. In Kenya, we minimise the use of harmful substances such as pesticides, cleaning products and paints, substituting them for innocuous and environmentally friendly products. The use and disposal of chemicals is properly managed.

Camp Tsavo is designed to minimise pollution from noise, light, run-off, erosion, ozone-damaging compounds and air and soil contaminants. We choose only environmentally friendly products for building materials, capital goods, food and consumables.

In addition, we encourage the principles of permaculture in our Kenyan projects and we have developed a community tree nursery for the neighbouring communities in Tsavo that provide fast- growing, sustainable wood.

Community

All of the camp locations that you stay in during your programme are staffed by members of the surrounding communities. Our projects are ongoing and sustainable, allowing us to commit to permanent employment for locals.

We employ staff transparently, creating a diverse workforce in terms of gender, ethnicity, age and disability. We pay all our employees fairly and treat ethically, respecting International and/or national legal protection of employees. By working in areas where tourism is less established, we contribute to the even distribution of income and economic growth. Most of our fresh produce and project materials are source from sustainable, local supplies.

Be part of a remarkable two week Healthcare volunteering programme in rural Kenya. Use your vocational skills to change the lives of rural communities who otherwise don’t have access to sufficient healthcare services. Our pop-up clinics treat all ages from newborns through the elderly, you could be treating a child with jiggers (parasitic fleas that embed into the feet), tending to infected wounds, or carrying out much needed immunisations. As well as treating patients, Healthcare Outreach acts as a valuable vehicle for awareness offering help and advice on everything from family planning to nutrition.
