Main area of focus in Caring for the Destination:
Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
- Healthcare: HIV/AIDS Awareness Community Project - set up by two brothers from the village and now reliant on community volunteers. Extra resources are donated by Chembe Village Projects Coordinator.
- Education: Education is a key part to each project, in particular the Environmental Projects.
- Environment: Environmental awareness and sensitization is the key to this lake side community and is tackled through the education of local people and allowing them to benefit from tourism along the lake shore.
The Responsible Safari Company is committed to the donation of 90% of clients to Chembe Villages Project.
