USAWA - Safaris que cambian vidas

Usawa: Safaris that change lives...

Safari is a Swahili word meaning journey, Usawa means equality, justice... and that is what we offer you on this trip. A journey towards equality, because we will enjoy beautiful places before arriving at our final destination, our cooperation project in Lamu: Afrikable, where our main objective is the empowerment of women, and the fight for their rights and for equality in society.

Taking part in our Solidarity Holidays Programme is an unforgettable experience in which you will actively collaborate in our project, you will discover a new reality thanks to these women and their children. Upon your return you will become an awareness-raising agent in your community. It is an experience that changes lives: your life and the lives of hundreds of families that we support.
