Understanding Travelers Philanthropy

Visionary Travel Philanthropy: Jane Kaye Bailey

Jane Kaye-Bailey and friends in Mukuni Village, Zambia

I have been very privileged to have traveled extensively throughout my life and always been aware of the poverty in so called ‘exotic’ destinations. To be a travel philanthropist takes very little effort, by giving just a few dollars to a local community or by sponsoring an orphan can make a huge difference to the lives of the needy.

During a trip to Zambia I took a few hours out to visit a local community, where I saw first hand the poverty and decimation caused by HIV/AIDS at a rural school near Livingstone and decided to do something about it. Now I dedicate most of my spare time to helping these humble people. In just twelve months I have raised over $60000 for the Mukuni Village School and Health Center, registered as a UK Charity called The Butterfly Tree and awaiting NGO Registration in Zambia as well as starting an orphan sponsorship program. Many people have inspired me along the way most especially Exquisite Safaris who advertise the importance of travel philanthropy to Africa, Asia and South America and destinations throughout the world that can benefit from travelers philanthropy. Not everyone has to go as far as I have, but to be able to give something back, whether it be in the form of a donation,or just making people more aware of the hardships, could considerably improve the lives of the underprivileged. They only require the essentials in life, food, water, education and medical supplies.
