Citi Bank Volunteer Africa Programme with Balloon Ventures

Volunteer Africa 2018 programme officially done! It’s been nice working with 12 Citi Bankers from different countries to support local businesses in Mbale through entrepreneurship and business design with Balloon Ventures. Moving on to the next one!

Volunteer African Impact in East Africa

For the past 5 weeks, I have been working as a programme manager of a Citi Bank and Balloon Ventures entrepreneurship programme in Mbale, supporting Citi professionals as they work with local entrepreneurs and prepare them to pitch for interest free loans to help them grow their businesses, supporting the programme with business design, marketing strategy and creating/design marketing collateral.

It has been a great adventure, using my skills to give back to the community and to learn from both local entrepreneurs and Citi Bankers

3 Days of Adventure Trips by Travel Maniacs

Travel Maniacs is a young travel brand, monitored by Makutano Safaris, a registered safari company specializing in domestic tourism and focusing on innovating how local people look at tourism and serving with a strong corporate social responsibility. They offer a wide range of services from Adventure Tours, Road Trips, Holidays & Honeymoon Packages, Hotels and Resort Reservations to Corporate and Individual Travel Assistance. I have worked with travel maniacs as a photographer and as a business consultant, supporting in designing packages and corporate business development.

They have a youthful team, passionate, qualified, well informed, friendly and flexible to make your travel and tour experience exciting. After travelling with these guys on a couple of trips, I thought I should share with you some of the things I have found to be exciting about their 3 Days of Adventure series.

Refreshing Moments

Exciting 3 days opportunity to get away, refresh and get away from your work. Traveling on new roads, no navigation, no GPS, no traffic jam. But fun. These guys will always be in control, from Transportation, Hiking, Boat Cruise, Game Drive, Nature Walk, Camp Fire, All meals, Accommodation and above all Crazy Photography.

Comics and Humour

As I said, these trips are led by a team of young people who are passionate about tourism and travel. You will be amazed by how they easily make your experience memorable with humour.

Social Responsibility

They do not only do this just for fun only, but also to impact and support communities that they visit. They reach out to vulnerables and support them in different ways; from donation, direct support and having fun together.

By the way, if you have a trip and looking for a photographer, I will be more than happy to travel with you 🙂
