Sustainable Tourism

11/24/2011

AfriCat Foundation in Namibia - Luxury Damaraland SafarisOkonjima in Damaraland, Namibia, recently sponsored a group of children from the nearby Joy Center to visit its AfriCat Foundation. The Joy Centre cares for 36 former street children between the ages of 3 and 22 who have been homeless, involved in crime, or orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The center provides shelter, nutrition, education, occupational training, and community to create a safe and nurturing environment in which to grow and develop. The group learned about predator conservation at Okonjima and enjoyed a collection of life 'firsts': first positive predator sighting, first insight into sustainable tourism, and first glimpse at the pioneering research undertaken close to their home.
