Gools and Thommo use their contacts on the ground in each country to make sure that they support the local people and their businesses. They are always looking for an opportunity that the Club can make any small difference to a community. If a support project is evident, they will always let you know how best to deal with it.
For example – giving money to kids on the street is counter-productive as it keeps them on the streets and not in school. Bringing school pens and pencils from home is a much better idea. Bringing any unused technical clothing from home to present to your driver and guides is always very much appreciated.
