Today, we hear a lot about responsible tourism, solidarity tourism, sustainable development or fair trade… This is a bit confusing!
Even if these terms are different, we can still note a similarity between them which is to act in a positive way to encourage an equitable development and a blooming of the individuals who live and work on the spot.
Rille Eyes Solidarity is committed to solidarity tourism because it wishes to provide a form of concrete solidarity with the populations visited. Our goal is to give visitors the opportunity to travel differently, by being more involved through their responsible behavior and their active participation in the welcoming community.
Rille Eyes Solidarity aims to make you discover the wonders of South Africa with a real eye. Our role is not to replace the locals or to build projects for them but to stand together and help the local population to realize projects for the future. Our approach promotes equitable economic development by creating jobs and the income generated by the arrival of travelers.
We are all moving hand in hand and this creates a climate favorable to exchange, sharing and good humor. We want the visitor to be able to see the country with their own eyes and walk it step by step with confidence. The fact of completely immersing ourselves with the locals remains for us the best way to know a destination.
For that, what better than to travel off the beaten track, where traditional travelers dare not go? These improbable places are full of history but also of tradition.
We forget the clichés, we try the adventure and we dare not discover differently. We let ourselves be surprised and we live our journey. Rille Eyes Solidarity invites you to become a supportive traveler and to see locally what you are contributing to.
Rille Eyes Solidarity allows you to physically participate in the realization of a solidarity project, to position people and meet them at the heart of your trip, to contribute to the development of local territories …
There are different ways of acting and perform acts of solidarity … Choose yours!
In order to offer solidarity trips respecting the host population, we ourselves spent time with the various associations and the people who work there.
We insist on the fact that Rille Eyes Solidarity does not aim to disturb the daily life of the locals but on the contrary to be respectful and attentive to the needs of the local population . This is how our solidarity will be effective, by participating and daring to live the journey from the inside .
We know that it is not easy for this type of structure to have help (physical and financial) and to be able to finalize capital projects for the good of their community. It is for this reason that Rille Eyes Solidarity fairly gift part of the amount of the trip for the benefit of local project development.
Depending on demand, we can organize preparatory meetings initially to provide you with all the information you need for South Africa. For those who wish, you can also get to know your traveling companions. On site you are welcomed and supervised by our local partners for the duration of your stay. The local team and the team based in France are permanently reachable.
