Project

Custom Safaris is committed to giving back to the local communities our clients travel to. We take pride in the relationships and connections we have with these incredible people. Custom Safaris Trust was created to develop projects dedicated to improving the lives of the local people through financial support for education, health care, economic empowerment opportunities for women, food and water. Every Custom Safari includes authentic cultural interaction and a visit to a school or local community. We can create a unique experience for those who have a special interest and would like to make a difference.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 29, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
