Overview

Overview

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.

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.

I only wish I could stay there for longer. I spent all day there learning about the ways of the people, but more importantly, their needs and struggles. There is serious need for irrigation of water from the local towns, since it rains very infrequently there.

Also, education needs to be improved. The massai live in a very closed off culture, with little interaction with the outside world.Small children walk over a mile to and from school every day.

I believe that there is so much that can be done to help this massai village. And we can ban together to help them build a better tomorrow.

I'm proud to have gone and being part of the EE team

I spent one month in the village and it was an amazing experience!! Everyone made me feel very welcome and took good care of me. The village is very safe so I didn't have any worries. The children at school and around were great, eager to learn and just happy to hang out with me! If you want to experience the Masai life, don't hesitate to volunteer there, I'm sure you won't regret it :)

I've had a lot of experience traveling and volunteering in different parts of the world--Uganda being one of them and the most memorable. I enjoyed my summer holiday working with Ethical Encounters organisation, it is worthy to support and If there is anything you want to know or need to ask about experiencing Uganda or working with the organisation, feel free to contact me.

Coming to Africa to work in a community like this with young people is something I've wanted to do since graduating & I finally got to come out in August 2012. . .

During my visit I expected to be helping trying to entertain & inspire these young people, Instead I left being inspired by them.

Their energy, passion for learning & the ability to always have a smile on there face no matter what made this one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Its a great Charity & Im proud to say I'm lucky enough to be involved with them.
