Social Commitment

The management and staff of AS YOU LIKE IT SAFARIS are deeply committed to the furtherance of education and development in Kenya's emerging economy. Here is one project in which we are involved:

HOPE STREAMS ACADEMY was started as a small school in the Ngando slum for orphans. It has expanded already to house 150 children from the community, with parents assisting in providing lunches, and teachers who volunteer, getting "salaries" of around US$46 per month! In the U.S. tax-deductible donations to the school can be made through the Boulder City Sunrise Rotary, PO Box 60905, Boulder City NV 89006-0905. All of your donation, 100%, is sent to the school. Please include a note specifying Hope Streams Academy. Thank you!

As You Like It’s Social Responsibility, is trying to help this school not only exist but move forward and thrive. We want our children to learn about conservation of the environment and wildlife, so critical to Kenya’s economy and future. A love of animals, and a will to protect their heritage is encouraged. To this end, we spent a day showing the film of last year’s Jeff Sink Safari, which had been a win/win event for everyone, from safari adventurers, to Hope Streams children. Some of our guides were on hand to teach the children.

The Hope Streams children and teachers were very excited to see themselves as part of the film and show
