We have had a very progressive start to Q1 of 2022 with our projects on the ground starting to gain moment after the slow down that we have all experienced with the Covid 19 pandemic and Detla variant. Below are some highlights from the activity on the ground in our Education projects in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana
In November 2021, we launched a female safari guide project that is targeted at creating job opportunities for local women as safari guides. This project aims to develop female safari guides through skills training, mentorship, job shadowing, and rotations at African Bush Camps.
This program is a two-year program that will provide theory, practical and on-the-job training at ABC camps as a safari guide. The women selected for the program will undergo four weeks of theory and four weeks of practical safari training with African Guiding Academy and one week of Mokoro training before they will commence as trainee guides at ABC. This program will allow them to gain significant professional experience in travel and tourism, as well as other related fields, such as hospitality. Through personal mentorship and relationships, we aim to boost their confidence. Our top priority is building a competent group of ABC female guides that will join our renowned group of professional guides.
Our female guides are currently on ratation as trainee guides in our ABC camps in Botswana.
We are grateful for the ongoing support towads our projects and our foundation.
