On the 9th of November 2019 our first program will kick-off in Kilifi, Kenya. You have the choice of a 2-week or 4-week program. Staying longer is also possible.
Our goal is to bring together a group of innovators, entrepreneurs, creatives and digital nomads who want to co-create solutions together with local organizations that make a positive impact.
The program is built on 4 pillars: Growth. Connect. Impact. and Balance
Growth focuses on your personal and professional growth as we believe that you can only bring the best to this world when you grow yourself.
Connect is not only connecting with the other participants in the program, but also really connecting with the local culture and the local people. We do this via immersive travel experiences.
Impact we make by connecting you with local initiatives with a great mission who need help in tackling a challenge.
Balance is about self care and caring about the environment.
We do this via an array of talks, interactive workshops, individual sessions plus a focus on our mind, body and soul.
So, are you seeking for inspiration, making that difference, your next step in your career, combine travel and doing something impactful? Then have a further read and join our community!

We believe in connection. Between people from different cultures. To open our minds. Especially in a world that is dominated by internet and technology. We will connect you with like-minded entrepreneurs, with yourself and with the local people & Kenyan culture.
We believe that we need to invest in ourselves first before we can bring the best to others. In our program we will focus on your personal and professional growth.
Helping others or working on something that really makes a positive contribution, makes us happier and creates compassion. You will have the opportunity to make an impact by sharing your skills & experience and support with a local organization with a great mission that needs to tackle a challenge.
Living a balanced life is a challenge for many people. Conscious living can make a difference for this planet. One step at a time. We want to inspire you how you can practically take your steps in terms of what you eat, your environmental footprint, and how to have a good work-life balance.
A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF
OUR IMPACT ORGANIZATIONS
THE FOOD MOVEMENT
The Food Movement is based on the Farm to Table principle. It was started by Warren Wilson who has a passion for cooking and wanted to do this with locally grown produce, ideally using regenerative farming. With this farm to table concept, he wants to teach and empower local farmers to grow products via this regenerative farming method and be a place where chefs from all over the world are invited to experiment and share their knowledge and skills with local chefs.

The Flipflopi is the world’s first dhow (sailing boat) made entirely from waste plastic and flip-flops. Their vision is a world which has banned single-use plastic, and where responsible production and consumption of plastic is part of a circular, not linear, economy.
They do this by creating awareness, and engaging stakeholders. Their next step is to build a larger boat to share their message with the world.

Safariseat’s mission is to provide disabled people with independence, a chance to explore their surroundings and connect with other people instead of having to stay in their house day in, day out. They make wheelchairs for people who can't afford to buy one. The initial grant that they received to set up the workshop is running out. They need to work towards a sustainable business model that will allow them to continue making and providing wheelchairs to the disabled.
