Early in April our South African partners, Good Work Foundation picked up our latest award for us. Thanks Gemma and Fumani for representing us and all our other African partners!
We’ve just won GOLD at the WTM Africa Responsible Tourism Awards
These awards “ champion the very best work in Responsible Tourism on the African continent. …. – sustainability champions, changemakers, movers and shakers – who continue to make a positive impact and lead by example.“
We won the award for our e-volunteer programme – thanks to all the e-volunteers and our partners in South Africa The Gambia and Morocco – this is your award too!
“People and places has developed a way of continuing ‘real’ volunteering, even though travel was not possible. Volunteers are able to get to know and interact with local people through regular planned video calls -and some local people have said that they feel they have built up better relationships with volunteers online because they have had longer to get to know them.”
