Sending a shoutout to African Impact on this very special day as they celebrate 10 years of leadership and innovation in responsible volunteer travel!
In honor of their 10th anniversary, African Impact has launched an initiative called Beyond the Roots, where volunteers and staff will create 10 food gardens in different locations across Africa. These gardens will have long lasting impacts by continuing to provide fresh food for the community long into the future. And that’s not all… there are former African Impact volunteers and ambassadors such as myself that are creating their own food gardens in their communities and own backyards all over the world! See their locations in the photo below.
I was fortunate enough to volunteer on the teaching program in Livingstone, Zambia with African Impact in December 2013. My experience in Zambia exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds, so it was a pleasure to create my own food garden right at home! Plus, having fresh fruits and veggies in my backyard is always a perk 🙂
I wish all the best to African Impact and look forward to many more years of changing lives across Africa, and of the volunteers around the globe! Happy 10th birthday!
