Through the generosity of our guests, contributors and volunteers, Micato’s non-profit arm AmericaShare is changing outlooks—and lives—in the slums of Nairobi.
“Micato-AmericaShare is the why of why we exist.”
Dennis Pinto, in an email to Team Micato
Micato Safaris established AmericaShare as a non-profit foundation through which Micato guests, corporate donors, industry friends and staff can support sustainable change in East Africa. The company is deeply committed to helping disadvantaged populations affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic through its programmes. Micato pays 100% of the administrative costs of AmericaShare—so all money donated goes directly to the people and projects AmericaShare supports.
Projects like our School Sponsorship Programme. Through this programme, we’re helping children who might not otherwise be able to afford a quality education. Micato’s AmericaShare places these vulnerable children in reputable boarding schools with the help of sponsors, underwriting the entire cost of school fees, tuition, books, uniforms, room and board and all the basic items a student needs. Sponsoring a child has a direct impact on his or her life, and it provides them with the best opportunity to get out of the slum and create a better life for themselves. Currently the programme supports over 300 orphaned and vulnerable children.
