Papillon not only feels like sharing West Africa's beauty with others, she also feels like sharing with West Africa and creating a balance between receiving and giving.
Therefore Papillon Reizen donates to the Papillon-emergency fund and to the Papillon-project fund for every journey.
The local community can plea for a contribution from the Papillon-emergency fund in poignant situations when a family cannot bring up the necessary funds themselves. This could, for instance, be for medicines or medical assistance in case of illness or an accident, but also for a contribution to a funeral or the rebuilding of an in the rainy season collapsed house.
Each request will be discussed with and judged by our local contacts.
The Papillon-project fund is created to support (small scale) local initiatives.
For and by the locals.
For instance with a focus on the environment. This could be a project to raise the awareness on waste and environment or a project that creates financial independence for the locals by supporting them to create a project or a business.
Possibly Papillon will create projects in cooperation with the local communities.
