Giving back to The Society
Since the beginning, we have worked to create businesses that only leave a positive footprint on Kenya. As leaders in sustainability, we’ve integrated environmental and social best practices into every aspect of our businesses.
Commitments to sustainability in Kenya follow the goals laid out by a number of respected organizations and groups including Sustainable Travel International, Partnership for Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria, the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals, Kenya government policies and discussions with Kenyans themselves.
WORKING WITH KENYAN COMMUNITY
To us, sustainability is about more than just a carbon footprint; it’s also about working with local communities to ensure their lives are improved by tourism, and that they can carry on the work we started. For years, we have consulted with local leaders to ensure that Flash McTours and its guests are not just treading lightly on Kenyan landscapes, but also positively impacting the lives of Kenyan people.
Our aim is to work closely with communities living alongside national parks and wildlife reserves to help them derive benefits from conserving wildlife species and the indigenous habitat. They do this by earning an income from eco-tourism through setting aside areas of their land as wildlife conservancies and thereby creating wildlife dispersal areas outside the parks, increasing wildlife numbers and species variety, habitat and bio-diversity.
When it was founded in 2012, the primary purpose of Shauri Moyo Secondary School was to improve access to, and quality of, education in Kenya communities. Though the mission of the organization has expanded since then, education is still a passion.
