BirdsConTour, based in Windhoek, Namibia, runs impressive social welfare projects in countries the company operates in, with the general goal of addressing the needs of local people. By doing so we create an efficient, healthy social system that in return can apply sustainable nature conservation practices.
BirdsConTour’s tourism industry generously spends a percentage of its revenue to these social welfare projects. With this revenue spend, BirdsConTour puts the money straight back into the community of the countries the company offers bird watching tours in, focusing on different areas such as children’s services, culture and heritage, and women’s needs. However, we know that funding is only part of the story. We work hand-in-hand with the management of all our community partners, by giving practical guidance and training for effective and sustainable operations.
BirdsConTour’s Social Welfare projects are a powerful, unique and dynamic social movement with a vision to change the lives of many in order of achieving conservation conscious societies through a simple yet effective method of giving to give back. Here we turn the spotlight on a few projects that, together with many others, can be viewed in detail under our Words of Feather newsletter blog:
BirdsConTour formed the non-religious and non-political charity program Aiding Wings in order to encourage people and to improve people’s lives and ultimately generate a conservation conscious community.
BirdsConTour (Birds Conservation & Tourism) uses local wild birds as an aid program to treat people. Nature is one of the best medicines. The Healing Power of Birds Program brings peace and joy to many people and at the same time, by establishing wild bird sanctuaries (feeding stations), the program gives local wild birds a boost, too.
