A tour to discover cork (in Portugal, not the Irish city)

When we booked the "Algarve jeep safari," they promised a tour to the interior to show there was more to Portugal's southernmost region than beaches, bars and golf courses. We passed through remote villages; stopped off at a couple of out-of-the-way places for a coffee break and lunch; visited a distillery; and finally stopped in a cork oak grove, where Tomás our guide gave an interesting presentation. At home, I usually drink wine in a screwtop bottle. I know there’s a bit of controversy…

  • A group of teachers through the volunteer nonprofit organization Wrestling the World are doing some wonderful things in Kenya that I would like to share with the Tripatini community.

    The teachers of WTW connected with Hopewell HS which is located in the impoverished community of Barut, Kenya and started communicating through the internet and letters. They collborated - and bought to fruition - a project to build a stone classroom block (as they were in tin rooms).

    When that was completed, WTW and the Barut community started working on another initative to improve the economic situation of the area.

    In Kenya, community-owned and operated eco-lodges are prevalent. While they support local livelihoods and economies, they do not always encourage interaction between guests and the local people. The vision for the WTW International Village Kenya changes that by blurring the line between resident and tourist. This is a locally operated facility that offers casual, meaningful exchange between travelers and residents, and access to an extensive menu of volunteer projects.

    In addition to cultural engagement, guests will have opportunities to experience the nature attractions of the area including a Big 5 safari in the vast Masai Mara game reserve and hiking to the Thompson Falls and Menengai Crater. All trip bookings, volunteer program management, and tour operations are fully managed by Wrestling the World and the International Village staff.

    The first cottages at the International Village will be complete in December with the entire facility completed in June 2010. This is a not-for-profit enterprise that will have a permanent and significant presence in the community by offering a source of job and vocational training to help Barut residents improve their life situations, as well as making an important contribution to Kenyan tourism.

    WTW is currently booking trips for summer 2010. WTW's model is for this to be a debt-free initiative. Hence, 100% of the proceeds from trip bookings will go back into the community. In addition to regular tours and family trips scheduled for June and August, WTW is offering College age specific trips in May and High School age specific trips in July for guests to experience the International Village.

    This is such a cool story of how volunteers can work together to change the world. I invite you to join on one of the upcoming trips. For more info and to view a marketing brochure for trip details and pricing visit http://www.internationalvillages.org/
