We try to lend a helping hand to as many African children and families in need as possible and to provide them with an efficient, cross-sectoral and sustainable assistance. Beside our projects on the ground, we also organise a number of presentations and programmes in Hungary so that everyone can discover the cultural and natural values of the African continent. We try to reach as great a public as possible, inform it about our work and win over new and new supporters for our cause. You can find updates on our projects and events by surfing the News.

What is Humanitarian Tourism? Humanitarian tourism is a new kind of tourist program previously unheard of in Hungary, encompassing elements of an exotic holiday and a humanitarian mission. The goal of these unique journeys is for the traveler to get to know the beauties of the Black Continent and its everyday life, and to have an active time of relaxation. All participants will have an amazing time and have an authentic African experience of a lifetime, something that is almost incomparable to classic and conventional trips. During the 12-15 days of the trip, thanks to the Foundation’s local knowledge and contacts, travelers will have a chance to explore, under safe conditions, aspects of African life and tourist sights that are not accessible for the average visitor. These journeys, organized several times a year, provide an unparalleled opportunity to realize a teamwork-driven humanitarian mini-project, the costs of which are included in the fee of the trip. The participants can meet and cooperate with the locals, take part in their everyday lives and implement with them a simple development project that matches the current objectives of the Foundation and serves a humanitarian purpose (e.g., painting the orphanage, renovating a health-care institution, lending a hand with simple construction jobs as well as purchasing and donating items to those in need. They visit the institutions supported by the Foundation and some of the locals and communities in need. Of course, becoming part of some characteristically “African situations” is also inevitable. Even the accommodation serves the purpose of establishing direct contact: the travelers are housed in welcoming guest houses and private homes that meet European expectations bur are unlike conventional hotels, thus providing an insight into African life. The journey includes the following things as well: - Real African experience without "make-up" - Gaining experience of the everyday life and culture of African people - Direct and lifelike encounters with African people and visits to institutions supported by Hungarian people - Exploring the unbeliveable diversity of the nature - Guaranted relaxing times - Experiencing the spiritual results of your direct and active help. Our motto is: "Helping is Privilege!" - Having a look at the meaning and goodness of live from an African point of view You can find more details about this programme here: Further information about humanitarian tourism can be found here: E-mail: Phone: +36207722279 or +3613321054
