Our Corporate Social Responsibility - Empower Women in East Africa (Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania & Kenya)
Gorilla Hike Africa is a leading local tour company that awards tourists from different parts of the World great opportunities to have an insight into Rwanda’s major highlights and other destinations in East & Central Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and DR Congo).
From customizing Wildlife, Primates & Gorilla Tours, City tours to remarkable cultural encounters, Gorilla Hike Africa is unmatched with its impeccable services offered in Rwanda, the land of a thousand hills, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.
Additionally, this incredible company is into this field not only to arrange grand Safaris, but as well to empower the Women in Rwanda and other East African countries.
This is evidenced by the company’s desire to give chance for young Rwandan women to join the tour guiding field. For couple of years tourism has existed, it has been very rare to find a woman tour guide which is a sign of inequality.
For gender equality, this is why Gorilla Hike Africa is up to let all women qualified in Tourism try their potentials. Other than tour guiding, Women in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania engage in numerous local activities thus producing multiple local products they can sell for a living, but what affects them is the lack of market for their goods.
Gorilla Hike Africa is starting this initiative majorly to support all Women in Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda through sourcing donations to support their local projects and as well generate market for their locally made products.
If you are willing to join this cause for the betterment of Women in East Africa, don’t hesitate to contact us for a go ahead. Some of the projects we are considering perfect for women include tailoring, weaving and craft making.
