Lets Go Travel is dedicated to promoting social sustainability for a better future as we have focused on several initiatives to support the communities in the destinations we operate. Under our Livelihood pillar, the Pat Dixson Aid to the Elderly program made a significant impact on the lives of disadvantaged seniors in Limuru. We provided them with regular food hampers and occasional donations of clothing and other necessary items. Additionally, the program extended its support to the Body of Christ Children’s Centre and Cheshire Home, which accommodates physically challenged teenage girls. Every other Wednesday morning, we distributed aid to beneficiaries, supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of achieving zero hunger (Goal 2) and promoting good health and well-being (Goal 3).
Our Keep Her in School program, conducted quarterly in five primary schools and one secondary school in Nanyuki, Laikipia County, focuses on providing schoolgirls with sanitary towels to ensure they can continue their education without missing classes. As part of our community outreach, we collaborated with health and social representatives to deliver an annual better health talk to senior students, covering topics such as personal hygiene, self-esteem, personal identity, self-control, and self-awareness. Additionally, we conducted an initiative to promote personal hygiene among boys. Over 400 boys in the partner received boxers as a means of supporting, educating, and enlightening them about this essential aspect of their health. The schools benefiting from this program include Kalalu Primary School, Umande Primary School, Ndemu Primary School, and Kalalu Secondary School.
In terms of education, we organized monthly Sustainable Tuesday meetings, where staff members discussed the latest updates in sustainable travel and tourism. Representatives from Air France-KLM, Lufthansa, and Qatar Airways joined us on separate occasions to share their sustainability initiatives, including Sustainable Aviation Fuel, carbon offsetting programs, noise and air quality best practices, and waste reduction strategies. These sessions have been instrumental in educating our staff on the latest trends and best practices in the industry, demonstrating our commitment to promoting sustainable travel and tourism.
Recognizing the importance of young people in sustainable tourism development, we partnered with Sustainable Travel and Tourism Consulting for the monthly Young Change Makers seminars. These seminars engage university students, focusing on emerging trends in tourism and travel sustainability. During the first quarter, we visited Chuka University, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, and Kenyatta University, covering topics such as transforming tourism to combat climate change, the role of tourism in the blue economy, and innovative tourism training for the sector resilience. We believe in empowering young people to become change agents in the sustainable tourism sector, and these seminars are a crucial step toward achieving that goal.
Regarding environmental sustainability, we have implemented various initiatives to reduce our environmental impact. Our Adopt a Tree program involved planting trees in five schools in Nanyuki. This initiative aimed to mitigate climate change while raising awareness among students about the importance of environmental care and active participation in climate mitigation efforts. The schools benefiting from this program include Kalalu Primary School, Umande Primary School, Ndemu Primary School, and Kalalu Secondary School. By engaging the younger generation, we strive to foster a sense of responsibility and lifelong commitment to environmental stewardship.
