Children Growth Program

Educational Effort

From 2018, MING Tribe has put more effort into education, and with the background of our directors, who are co-founders and shareholders of top international schools in China, we have attempted to bring out children’s awareness in social responsibility, environment protection, wildlife conservation, and attention to vulnerable groups. We believe raising awareness is the first step before taking actions. We work with children worldwide to create a diverse environment for children from different cultural and educational backgrounds around the world to learn together.

Raising Awareness

In 2018, MING Tribe worked with Chinese directors to produce a documentary telling Kibera Ballet School’s story. The documentary itself has attracted attentions to the school and the ballet teacher, giving the world a peek of how amazing things can happen under challenging environment. MING Tribe, as the co-producer, made sure the production happen safely and all information are captured correctly. Our staff donated to their facilities and families out of their own will

after the production finished. The documentary has been nominated in many Film Festivals and Academies and attracted worldwide attention to impoverished girls in African slums. It reveals the reality that donating only is not enough, it is more important to teach these girls a lifelong skill and a mindset of believing in themselves that can actually make them independent and more promising in the future.

Taking Actions by Children Growth Program

In 2023, MING Tribe is moving from raising awareness to taking more actions. Children from international schools around the world attended our Children Growth Program. During this program children will be formed into a group and attend various activities, including wild surviving training, conservation workshops, learn about the day of an UNICEF Ambassador and cultural engagement.

We worked with UNICEF Ambassador who took our children to the library and school they sponsored in Kaloleni. Children from China and Kenya exchanged their stories and traditions, and our Chinese young visitors also brought stationaries and books as gifts to their welcoming new friends from Kenya. In the afternoon, we visited Ligi Soo Football League. Ligi Soo Football League is founded to give kids more skills in sports, and more spirit in teamwork, in order to prevent them from doing drugs and theft. Not only the football league, the program is also for various skills training, including basic business knowledge, computer skills, language learning, etc. The league helped both their body and mind, showed them how knowledge can change life. And with the Children Growth Program, both children from different world get to meet and share their ideas. We also got football training together and had a friendship football match among the kids. Both groups benefited from the experience, because it shows them the importance of embracing traditions and cultures you don’t know. It is our generation’s responsibility to show the world how people can engage with completely different backgrounds and work together as a team.

For the wildlife and conservation work, we have invited local researchers to give our children and their parents a speech of their work. We also took the children to spot elephants from helicopters, which gave them a more profound idea of how difficult and committed conservation works are. From the air, children had a wilder view of landscape of the bush and began to observe the conflicts between farmers and conservationists. They might not be able to do too much at this

age, but the idea of environmental protection has grown in their mind and heart.

During the wild surviving training, our children got to work with one of the most legendary safari guide, naturist, and former director of KPSGA (Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association), Mr. David Githu. David is on the board of KWS (Kenya Wildlife Service) and honored lecturer in Nairobi National Museum, giving joys to all nature lovers and kids who are excited about Africa wilderness. He is also the designated guide for BBC and NAT GEO, offering amazing

guiding and knowledge to the world through so many documentaries. Our children had a five-day training by him, offering them all kinds of knowledge about wildlife, animals, plants, landscape, culture, and history of different tribes. While we were tracking the animals in the bush, our children took photos of different animals’ footprints, wrote down notes of all kinds of animals, started fire from cow dung, and made bows and arrows like masai worriers. They sat by the

river for 2 hours just to observe the movement of mara river and animals like a BBC documentary maker. We would like to show children that when you are in the wild, you need to survive not only by having more knowledge, but also always being humble and respectful to nature.

During the program, children get the chance to take real actions to understand the world and realize how delicate it can be. They are coming from a more developed country and hoping to make the rest of the world a better place with their knowledge and exposure. This experience taught them maybe you are a big star now, but you never forget your roots and never forget education and knowledge is the way out of poverty. It taught them the braveness of conservatist when they face daily threat from farmers and poachers, but they still need to keep moving forward with their work to protect wild animals. It taught them a man with all the knowledge and accomplishment in his safari career can still be humble and thirsty about the wild. One day our children will find their career path and contribute to the society. We are glad this experience has not only shown their different occupations, but also the devoted spirit of these amazing mentors.

Liaison with International Schools

Apart from the contributions to Kenya community, MING Tribe has been working on education since 2007. Our shareholder is also co-founder of many international schools in China. These school are not only top international schools, but they have also been donating and building schools in rural areas of China to offer more education opportunities to kids and families who can’t afford. The exchange for these schools is amazing projects, children from different schools and living environments exchange to each other’s school and home, to give them more exposure and understanding of diversity among cultures. And we are pursuing exchange programs between them and Kenyan international schools.

Sustainable Travel and Conservation

Sustainable travel, also known as responsible or eco-friendly travel, refers to the practice of traveling in a way that minimizes negative impacts on the environment, local communities, and cultures while promoting economic and social benefits. It aims to strike a balance between exploring the world and preserving it for future generations.

During the experience MING Tribe creates, we are trying our best to carrying out sustainability.

Environmental Conservation

Sustainable travel emphasizes reducing one's carbon footprint. We recommend eco-friendly transportation options, stay in green accommodations, and engage in activities that have minimal impact on ecosystems. This can help protect fragile environments and wildlife. Especially in East Africa, the conflict between development and conservation is always a serious topic, we introduce such history and ongoing development with our guests, and bring more awareness to the


Economic Benefits

Sustainable travel contributes to the local economy by providing income and job opportunities for local residents. It can help alleviate poverty and support sustainable development in destinations. We always choose different conservancy who hires and trains local communities, and help build infrastructure of schools and hospitals.

Promoting Conservation

Sustainable travelers may participate in conservation efforts such as wildlife protection, reforestation projects, or marine conservation programs. These activities help preserve natural habitats. We take clients to visit conservation groups, especially elephants, to attract more attention to researchers and lead to donations.

Education and Awareness

Sustainable travel is also about raising awareness and educating oneself about the environmental and cultural issues in the places visited. Understanding the challenges faced by local communities and ecosystems is an essential part of responsible travel.

Cultural Respect

Travelers who embrace sustainable tourism respect the cultures, traditions, and heritage of the places they visit. They engage with local communities in a responsible and respectful manner, supporting local artisans and businesses.

Reducing Waste

Travelers are encouraged to minimize waste by using reusable items, reducing plastic consumption, and properly disposing of waste. Recycling and responsible waste management are vital components of sustainable travel.

Supporting Responsible Tourism Operators

Travelers can choose tour operators and accommodations that have a strong commitment to sustainability. These operators often implement eco-friendly practices and support local initiatives. We supported various eco-friendly lodges in Kenya who are using sustainable and local materials to build the infrastructure, which also allows travelers to get closer to the nature.

Offsetting Carbon

Some travelers choose to offset their carbon emissions by investing in carbon offset projects, such as tree planting or renewable energy initiatives, to compensate for the environmental impact of their travel.

Sustainable travel encourages individuals to be mindful of the impact their journeys have on the planet and its inhabitants. By making conscious choices, travelers can enjoy enriching experiences while helping to protect the environment and support local communities, ultimately ensuring that the destinations they visit remain attractive and vibrant for generations to come.
