Ndifo at the United Nations
Discussing Conservation & Community Development
Ndifo Safari’s owner and lead guide; Steven Ngowi, had a chance to stop by the United Nations in New York City to speak with Flora Nducha, Chief of UN News Kiswahili, regarding conservation in Tanzania.
He came to New York City to raise funds to help endangered species in Tanzania – specifically for Kili C.R.E.W. (Kilimanjaro Animal Center for Rescue, Education & Wildlife), an organization that rescues animals injured or orphaned by poachers, drought and injury from snares. They provide rehabilitation before releasing them into a protected environment.
Speaking with Flora, he explains how Ndifo is trying to help save the wildlife of Tanzania while helping his local community. Steve explains how traveling with Ndifo Safari contributes to conservation and community development projects. A portion of each booking goes directly to projects helping the most vulnerable people and wildlife in Tanzania.
From the United Nations: The tourism sector is one of the major contributors to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) with the United Nations pushing for the sector to be sustainable in the interest of the world and its people. In Tanzania, young people are contributing to the sector first as a source of employment but also contributing to the national economy and the surrounding communities. Among them is Steven Ngowi, who owns the tourism company Ndifo Safari, who besides being a tour guide is active in various community projects and helping to save endangered animals.
