Thandeka is a travel company that connects people with resources with non-profits and social enterprises looking to scale sustainable solutions. Our team curates trips to bring industry leaders and philanthropists around the world into direct contact with local communities in Africa. Through carefully structured immersions, Thandeka exposes donors and investors firsthand to the difficult challenges many societies face, allowing travellers to gain insight into each unique culture and context. From there, clients and communities engage in a dialogue to understand how financial, intellectual and creative resources can be best deployed to empower local communities and support long-lasting impact. Together with our partners, Thandeka aims to create collaboration between those with means and those with knowledge of the need, bringing smart solutions to ever more pressing problems.
“Nothing makes me happier than sharing our beautiful community with others. Many grow up in fear of the townships, but they don’t see what I see…Laughter, love and loyalty. With Thandeka I feel at home. There is no one else out there doing this.”
