Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism

Members of ARP Travel Group consider the importance of protecting the environment and the communities in which we operate as one of our highest priorities. We participate in a wide range of initiatives that foster development of the people of Africa ranging from sponsorship of students to visits to communities. Our travellers’ visits generate revenue for the communities to invest in locally managed projects.
We have a number of guidelines that our staff follow to reduce the consumption of paper and other consumables wherever possible. We look to recycle at every opportunity in all areas of our business to help save our planet. Past efforts have included student scholarships, eye
clinics, reforestation projects, water for villages and water dam projects in the bush. We have built relationships with a number of orphanages and schools helping the future of Africa stay bright.

Nia Children's Foundation

In late 2007 Nia’s founder, Shezmin Madhani, spent three months in Nairobi, Kenya where she worked with vulnerable children in a school in Kenya’s largest slum, Kibera. The impact of little food and virtually no educational materials resulted in the students’ lack of participation in class activities. She watched bright young children who were eager to learn but were struggling due to their surroundings. The more time she spent with these children and the dedicated teachers that ran the school, the more her enthusiasm grew for projects which supported such children. After leaving Kenya, Shezmin regularly visited the school with the hope of one day being able to support these children. In April 2009, at the age of 23, Shezmin worked alongside UK donors and local Kenyan suppliers to launch a ‘Food Programme’. The aim of this programme was to provide the school with regular food supplies and educational materials to ensure children attended school daily, were healthy and active in class and gained a basic education. A year later in March 2010 she officially founded and registered Nia Children’s Foundation with the UK Charity Commission. In 2012, Duncan Mahangilu joined Nia Children’s Foundation as it’s Project Coordinator on the ground in Kenya. Duncan’s aim is to support the projects that the Foundation supports and lead new projects. Duncan has worked in the slums on educational projects for many years and dedicates a majority of his time to giving back to the local communities in which he lives. Together, Shezmin and Duncan aim to grow and expand the ‘Food Programme’ across more schools in Kenya.
