Founder: Alice Nyamai

Travel Rafikis is a world-class Initiative for the African continent.

It is geared towards fighting illiteracy through storybooks and other modern reading technologies.

We collect storybooks old and new with an aim of redistributing them to those in need-both young at heart and old with experience.

Plus, it’s a cocktail of travel with impact stories.

Of course,a society that reads is a society that succeeds.

Additionally, Alice has been a volunteer for over 10 years through Rotary International local clubs in Kenya.

Some clubs include Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Mombasa, Kilifi and Malindi.

Alice has served as a President in Rotaract Club of Malindi.

Travel Rafikis Initiative works in collaboration with local community clubs to create more impact in collecting storybooks and distributing them.

She started Travel Rafikis Initiative to connect friends (Rafikis) in making a difference in people’s lives across the African continent.

Travel Rafikis don’t just travel, they travel for impact.

They make better than they found.

They make Africa better.

Alice’s drive comes from the question; 

     Why  is there still illiteracy in the 21st Century?

It’s simply about…… travel while you engage and connect with communities.

Experience cultures, meet locals, learn foreign languages, create positive social impact and capture good memories.

In conclusion, enjoy the beauty and pride of our beautiful country while in Kenya because charity begins at home.
