Finch Hattons’ Remarkable Partnership with WEAfrica
Celebrating 30 years of excellence in the heart of Tsavo National Park, Finch Hattons took a significant step in their journey by hosting the remarkable Women for the Environment group, WEAfrica, for their second retreat.
This event was part of Finch Hattons’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, and it was an opportunity to acknowledge and support the incredible women leading the way in conservation and environmental protection on the African continent.
The mission of WEAfrica, aptly represented by the hashtag #WeAfrica2023, is crystal clear: reshaping leadership and amplifying African women leaders in conservation. The retreat at Finch Hattons provided these phenomenal women with an immersive experience in Tsavo National Park, undoubtedly leaving an indelible mark on their journey.
As a luxury safari camp located in the heart of the wild, Finch Hattons offered the perfect backdrop for the WEAfrica retreat. Surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of Tsavo National Park, the women had the chance to connect with the environment and draw inspiration from its serenity. The immersive experience allowed them to appreciate the importance of conservation from the ground up, reinforcing their commitment to environmental protection.
THE THEME: LEADERSHIP
The women were encouraged to lead with power and purpose, and Finch Hattons played a pivotal role in facilitating this transformation. The camp’s commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism was a real-life example of how businesses can coexist with and contribute to preserving the natural world.
Leena Gehlot of Finch Hattons also thanked the event’s co-sponsors, Beatrice Karanja and Nature’s Pitch Africa, for their invaluable support. The collaboration between these organisations and WEAfrica exemplified the power of collective efforts in driving positive change.
Hosting the 3rd Leadership Cohort of WEAfrica was a testament to Finch Hattons’ dedication to environmental conservation and their commitment to empowering women leaders in the field. The retreat inspired the participants to take on conservation challenges with renewed vigour.
Finch Hattons’ partnership with WEAfrica is a shining example of how the hospitality and tourism industry can actively contribute to the conservation and empowerment of women in Africa.
It’s not just a retreat; it’s a transformative experience that supports and celebrates the incredible women shaping the future of the environment in Africa.
