At HTT we work closely with local communities in all our destinations to help them better their lives and protect their heritage and culture.


Shelter Children's Home

HTT has been a continued supporter of the Shelter Childrens Home in Kenya (formerly Simba Children's home) for the past 15 years. The orphanage is home to almost 200 orphaned children ranging from 2 years to 20 years of age. The orphanage was founded by Mr. Poona who at the time of formation, was the Chairman of the Giants Simba Group.

The home is located on 20 acres of land that was provided by the Kenyan government in the Ngong area of Nairobi. Over the years the home has grown and now has 4 dormitories, a school, local farm where all their vegetables are grown, a chicken house from which they get fresh eggs, cattle from which they get fresh milk and a clinic.

HTT works with the orphanage to ensure all the children have quality food, warm clothes, an education and most importantly a safe and nurturing environment to grow in. Children who have grown up in the home now lead lives in the local society with paid employment and are making a success of their lives.

HTT continues to support the home through financial, personal and community support.

To become a supporter of this worthwhile cause please visit or contact HTT for further information.


Plant a Tree

HTT is focused on protecting the environment. With all our services we encourage our clients to give a little bit back to the environment. In Kenya we offer you the option of planting a tree. You’re tree pledge will:

  • Offset co2 emissions
  • Help to reduce poverty
  • Provide wildlife habitats
  • Create a brighter future for orphans and people living with hiv / aids

All trees that are planted are native to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, and will be carefully planted and managed to live their natural lifespan and meet their biodiversity targets.

Each tree planted "offsets" your environmental impact by "breathing" in about 1 tonne of co2 emissions over its lifetime. It's estimated that the average person needs to save about 7 tonnes of co2 per year. So planting just 7 trees each year is one strategy for achieving this. The trees also replenish sustainable habitat for wildlife and will enhance the natural landscape with native trees.


To help you reduce your carbon footprint, HTT works with one of the leading carbon footprint management companies. We offer our clients the options of contributing to various carbons offset options including:

Carbon Footprint
  1. Reduce carbon emissions through the displacement of fossil fuels through clean / renewable energy generation
  2. Certified emission reduction - support sustainable development in developing countries through projects such as wind energy, hydro power and biomass.
  3. Reforestation in Kenya - your pledge funds the planting of native broad leaved trees in the Great Rift Valley
  4. Americans portfolio - we support carbon offsetting projects within North America, Central & South America - including reforestation & renewable energy production.
