Mission Statement


Our trips focus on giving the traveler a deeper understanding about responsible tourism and ethical issues. Travelers are encouraged to use the achieved knowledge in their future jobs, travels and daily life.

Description


Ethical Encounters started in 2008 through the growing need for more support for the communities based in rural Africa. Most of the on-going grass root projects are unable either to financially support themselves or lacked the man power and sought EE’s help to continue or improve their work. Caring about responsible travel, we realized that the best way to bridge the gap was to bring travelers and resources together to develop meaningful volunteer and ecotourism experiences which could help solve the specific issues for each project.
