 COMMUNITY CARE

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Tusker's founding guide Eddie Frank was born and raised in Africa, so as an African native, no one appreciates the hard work, determination, culture and economic struggle like Eddie.  Partnered with is wife Amy, they have spent many years leading treks and expeditions all across the country, personally witnessing the plight that can plague small communities.  That's why he knows better than most just how much the local communities depend on contributions to their economy and infrastructure.


In a targeted effort to better outfit porters, Tusker Trails, utilizing it's Porter Support Program, entered into a partnership with the local Lions Club Chapter, Moshi Kibo.

TEAMING UP WITH LIONS

Tusker's alliance with the local Lions Club extends and enhances Tusker's support and provides an additonal layer of oversight, ensuring care and support goes where it's needed most.   Tusker's partnership with The Lions Club's warm clothing drive helps distribute warm clothing to other porters to ensure they all have warm clothing and gear, regardless of what company they work for.  Tusker has also partnered with the Moshi-Kibo Lions Club on projects for the deaf and blind, which have become models of success in Africa.
