Visit the Village

Interested people can visit village communities in the Chogoria region and meet the beneficiaries of HopeCore. This is a transformative opportunity to be involved first hand in Village HopeCore projects.

Our July 2014 visitors helped with anti-malarial mosquito bed net distribution at a primary school.

Many visitors who come to the village to observe the microlending program and public health program activities combine their trip with a safari, visiting well-known preserves such as Samburu, Lewa Downs, and Lake Nakuru.

A homestay with a Village HopeCore family can also be arranged. Level of involvement is up to the visitor. For many, the opportunity to both experience a safari, see the Village HopeCore projects first-hand, and meet the people who work for and benefit from HopeCore is fulfilling.
