Passionate and committed to promoting responsible travel in Africa, Greg Greg co-founded African Impact, our partner, and the largest volunteering organisation in Africa employing over 170 people between Cape Town and Nairobi. They have currently placed over 12,500 volunteers across 94 projects in Africa.
Greg, a UK national, joined the organisation at the age of 18 following a period of travel around Africa. His role ranges from setting the company vision to running daily operations whilst continuously ensuring that African Impact attracts people from across the world to experience volunteer travel.
Gregs response to being awarded the honour: “Winning this award has left me both humbled and thrilled. Aside from the personal honour, this award is an important recognition of the volunteer travel industry. In building African Impact over the last decade and helping shape responsible tourism through this, I am confident in the power that volunteer travel can have in generating positive change globally. To be acknowledged by an industry forum as influential as the IHIF is hugely gratifying and very exciting”.
The award will be presented to Greg on the morning of Tuesday 3rd March at the IHIF conference. Well Done Greg!
