Travel Experts Advisors Support Kenyan Orphans Through The AmericaShare Program

RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beyond being one of the top Virtuoso travel companies, Travel Experts is one of the top AmericaShare sponsors. The program, run by Micato Safaris, matches needy children living in Nairobi's Mukuru slum with sponsors committed to help a specific child or children with school fees and other needs. Travel Experts advisors have been sponsoring children in the program since 2006 and currently sponsor 11 children.

"There are shattering and miserable human conditions found in every corner of the earth but to think that our contribution can change, not just a person, but a family, a community, a country, is so uplifting," said Laura Madrid, a Travel Experts advisor who has been sponsoring a child for three years. "This is not charity, this is providing hope to a child who would not otherwise have access to a safe and nurturing environment in which they can be educated."

"Through AmericaShare we are helping our children over the long term, sometimes through high school. It really changes lives and helps us make a small, but incredibly meaningful, imprint on the world," said Susan Ferrell, president of Travel Experts.   In addition to receiving letters and information directly from their adopted children, thanks to Micato Safaris' specialty in travel to Africa, several Travel Experts have met their sponsored children, further cementing the commitment to that child.

"We are grateful for the support of the many generous Travel Experts associates who donate to AmericaShare's School Sponsorship Programme," states Lorna Macleod, Executive Director of Micato-AmericaShare. "Their partnership with us creates a profound impact on the lives of an increasing number of orphaned and vulnerable children who would otherwise do without an education."

Established in 1986, AmericaShare enrolls the child in a boarding school, and provides clothing, books and school supplies. In addition, contributions also provide clean water, shelter and food for the children. The program has changed the lives of the children, but also those who have participated.
