Each year, an inspiring group of professionals from a variety of industries come together in Kenya with a common goal, to do something amazing.

Global Angels are proud to partner with Camps International to build a sustainable model of community development in the Kisigau Corridor, nestled between Kenya’s stunning Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks. Together, our aim is to collaborate with local leaders and empower communities with the resources to thrive. Resources such as easy access to water, education, health care, small business development and sustainable energy.

Your participation in the Tsavo Community Outreach trip allows you to not only make a charitable donation, but also to see the issues on the ground and contribute to the ongoing solutions. You will be working alongside a group of motivated, like minded philanthropists as well as the Global Angels team.

You have the unique opportunity to work alongside us and contribute to daily feedback and review discussions. You will reflect on the work you have been involved in and be encouraged to bring ideas to the table discussing how Global Angels could further build on the transformation of the community. These discussions provide fantastic coaching and personal development opportunities for anyone who is interested to learn more about charity, CSR and social enterprise.

STEP UP… BE AN ANGEL.

Day to Day Itinerary


You arrive into Mombasa airport where you will be met by a member of the local Camps International team and transferred to Camp Tsavo. Your first evening is dedicated to orientation for you and your travelling team. You will get to know each other whilst learning more about the Tsavo region and the key issues that the communities face on a daily basis.
Today you will get a chance to meet the locals, Mama Mercy and the Global Angels volunteer group staying at Camp Tsavo. You will visit our school feeding programme, see it in action and have an opportunity to play ball with the children.
You will learn about the issues facing the community, particularly water and poverty issues, visit water pans where women and children walk 10-15 kms every day to collect water shared with local cow herds. We’ll introduce you to solutions we are developing and challenges we face as we seek to empower this community. We will share with you our five year vision for transforming this area and invite your input.

Engaging with our team, our hydrologist and architect, Mama Mercy and the Tumaini Women will set the scene for your project work over the next few days.

Early evening will find us sitting around a fire pit for a facilitated group session by team building coach, Colin Smith. Using the valuable skills of listening and holding a safe, creative thinking space, we will have an opportunity for personal reflection and shared dialogue about what we experienced and felt during day.

You will work on projects designed to directly improve infrastructure in the local area.
We will be helping prepare the foundations of new classroom building for the nearby Maungu Secondary School that our donors are funding.

We will also be working on painting the new women’s centre and two water kiosks that the locals collect drinking water from.

Those in the team that are more experienced with building have the opportunity to finish the build of a home for one of the Tumaini women and her family.

There may also be the opportunity to visit and help the women with their shade netting vegetable gardens and supporting them with the development of their small business startups.

Morning work on projects, same as Day 4.
The afternoon will be spent at the beautiful Voi Wildlife Lodge which is home to a natural waterhole attracting big game, including elephant, lion, cheetah, buffalo as well as a rich variety of birdlife. Bring your swim suit and relax by the pool.
Same as Day 3
The morning will be spent putting the final touches to your project efforts and saying your goodbyes to the team and children at the school. Many of our volunteers choose to bring donations for the school and for the children and this morning provides the perfect opportunity to hand over your gifts.
