Green Ranger Safaris apart from providing tours and team building services, is greatly involved in various community development efforts and projects throughout the country.
What It Is All About
Community development is a structured intervention that gives communities greater control over the conditions that affect their lives. This does not solve all the problems faced by a local community, but it does build up the confidence to tackle such problems as effectively as any local action can.
In community development, we work at the level of local groups and organisations rather than with individuals or families. The range of local groups and organisations representing communities at local level constitutes the community sector.
The development involves undertaking a skilled process and part of its approach is the belief that communities cannot be helped unless they themselves agree to this process. Community development has to look both ways: not only at how the community is working at the grassroots but also at how responsive key institutions are to the needs of local communities.
What We Have Done
In recent years, Green Ranger Safaris has been visiting and supporting the Msamaria Mwema Children’s Home in Nairobi. This offers refuge to children orphaned by Aids. Please get in touch with us if you would like to help in any way. Click here to find out more about the home.
We have also organised various visits to the Compassionate Hands Children’s home. Compassionate Hands for the Disabled Foundation (CHDF) is a non-governmental organization that was started in 2008 as an outreach Centre in Korogocho slum, in Kenya for children with disabilities. These were orphans and other vulnerable children from extremely poor families abandoned or orphaned through HIV/AIDS. The non-governmental organization is now serving 85 children special needs that range from mental to physical disabilities.
