Welfare of our participants is key. A well planned and organized trip to Kenya is what we value. For AHADI we understand the risks and fear associated with travelling to Africa. And we have carefully designed our programs ensuring that safe practices are always met. Since 2007 we have successfully hosted many local and international participants in various projects and all our visitors realized that Kenya is a safe travel destination.
