In a solidarity and sustainable framework, we selected our associative partners on very selective criteria. The whole team spent time in all these organizations in order to interact with the founders, the local team on site, but also with local volunteers and people who are concerned with. We guarantee the seriousness of each association. Our daily goal is to live the project to understand it from the inside and ensure the merits and economic and social impact of the project on the local population. We follow our partners regularly in order to follow the evolution of solidarity projects.
We want to help these organizations in their development and their autonomy. Remember that the primary objective of these organizations is not to receive visitors, but to bring their solidarity projects to life in order to change the life of a local community in a lasting way. Today you should know that these organizations have no help from the state and that most of the people working in these associations are volunteers. Some associations do not have access to the internet (for lack of accessibility, means or knowledge).
Some of them have the capacity to welcome visitors to sleep and others do not. It should not be forgotten that as a traveler, it is not easy to go to a local village if one does not know the existence or the habits and customs of the latter. Rille Eyes Solidarity allows you to live a local immersion closer to reality and in complete safety .
To support all of them in an equitable way, we decided by mutual agreement with our partners to take care of all the logistics related to the solidarity project so that they can stay focused on the project itself. Again we emphasize that we do not volunteer or do humanitarian work. Rille Eyes Solidarity does not request any compensation for participation in a solidarity project (except the accommodation costs requested by the association or the village if you choose to sleep on the spot). We organize tailor-made trips with a solidarity dimension in South Africa and this is the reason why we donate part of the amount of your trip to them. If you would like more information on the organization of the solidarity project, contact us .
To date, we support 5 local associations in South Africa which carry out several solidarity projects in order to help their respective communities to develop in a fair and responsible manner.
The main solidarity projects that we support are related to education, animation with the community, protection of the environment and animals; as well as renovation and reintegration. It is possible to find different projects within the same organization. The aim of these solidarity and sustainable projects is to be able to participate in a healthy and lasting community development in order to allow the local population to gain autonomy.
It is also possible to combine several solidarity projects during your trip. For this type of stay, we design specific tours marking the stop in various associations. Don’t hesitate, ask us for a solidarity combo . We will customize it especially for you.
