GIVING BACK

OUR COMMUNITY

The positive balance between tourism, community and conservation are crucial for the health and survival of each. As such, the Ghost Mountain Inn though it’s Ndumu Charitable Foundation and with the assistance of guests and local businesses operates various programs to assist local communities and conservation efforts to thrive.

Our community development programs have 3 main objectives: well-educated children; the development and support of small enterprises; and an enhanced awareness of conservation and sustainable practices in our business and community.

Please contact us if you would like to make a general contribution, support a particular school or program or supply educational materials.

Guests are welcome to visit schools if they are interested to meet learners and teachers in order to attain further insight into how they can assist.Most rural schools are severely under resourced and most families in the area living on poverty levels the simplest donations of school supplies, uniforms, books and magazines and even health and hygiene items can make the world of difference to these learners and their teachers.
