Our Expedition Philosophy
This is NOT poverty tourism
CHOICE Humanitarian is an international development organization whose purpose is to eliminate extreme poverty. We are NOT a travel company, and this is NOT poverty tourism. CHOICE believes in hand-ups, not hand-outs. With over 36 years working in international development, we have learned that for humanitarian expeditions to be sustainable, they MUST be part of a larger, locally driven program that exists long before expeditions arrive and the programs must have commitments from every community that lasts long after the expeditions leave.Read more
To celebrate our 40th Anniversary, my wife Cindy and I wanted to do something meaningful and fun, so we chose a volunteer vacation. We traveled to Africa with a purpose in mind – to help build a school in Mungano, a small village outside Mombasa, Kenya. It turned out to be a trip of a lifetime.
