We are committed to giving back to the communities we visit as we travel around the world. We have visited schools and made donations to charitable causes in Nicaragua, Bhutan, Honduras, and most recently our group made gifts to several worthy causes during a safari in Kenya. These included the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, where we contributed to the elephant orphanage in Nairobi, a Masaai Village in the Masaai Mara, and a Giraffe Sanctuary in the outskirts of Nairobi.
There were two special causes in Kenya that especially moved us. The first is “The Bretheren Concern,” a group dedicated to serving the target demographic of men who have sex with men in Nairobi. They do their important work with absolutely no local support whatsoever, and they are in tremendous need of outside assistance. The second cause we have decided to champion is a remote primary school where 250 children depend for their early education and even their basic necessities on the generosity of those who happen to visit. We are committed to feeding and educating these beautiful children.
Toto Tours will continue to support both of these causes into the indefinite future, and we will definitely be adding more as we eventually start a charitable foundation. We have created an informational page about our featured causes on this site. Please visit both the links below, and consider if you are in a position to help.
Recognizing that international leisure travel by plane creates carbon emissions, Toto Tours is in the forefront of travel companies that are committed to minimizing the impact of their tours upon the environment. We have partnered with carbonfund.org to be part of the global solution.
We will wire all contributions collected for these projects quarterly. You can also contribute directly, and the bank routing information is on these web pages. Be assured, however, that all contributions channeled through Toto Tours will be sent in their entirety, with no money taken out for adminstrative expenses.
This is just one of the ways Toto Tours is making a difference in the world. Many small sums add up to making a tremendous impact for good. Please take advantage of this opportunity to give in a way where you can be sure your contributions will get directly into the hands of the people who will make every dollar count!
