Although a fairly new term, many developmental organisations have been using different forms of charitable tourism as a tool to fund their projects for some time now. This approach is also creates self sustainability for their projects. Our sister NGO 'Wahoe Commune' is currently seeking ways to create self-sufficiency in their projects; this will be able to happen by creating income generating projects on the ground in their country, rather than relying on international sponsors and donors . There are many reasons why a developmental organisational would take up this approach, the most obvious being that NGO's lack funding from government or international partners, as well as these organisations see the benefit of creating projects on the ground. This sustainable approach creates opportunities and jobs for the local people and generates a more reliable source of funding.
Charitable tourism is just one method of creating self sufficiency for our projects. We also have a Women's Empowerment gift shop, where hand-made products are sold. These products are made by women in the Baljeet Nagar community who attend our Women's Empowerment classes. The funds raised from our gift shop go directly towards empowering the women in the Baljeet Nagar community.
