Discuss social enterprise safari partnership and write letter of intent

Status: Stalled
Time needed: 
Two hours

Some neighbours have brought up the idea to try to establish a partnership with a safari tour provider to the Nile source to give tourists an incentive to donate a bednet for the village. The idea is to use the relatively new idea of a social enterprise, that is to say an enterprise that does reinvest its profit in social projects. Safari providers might have an interest in showing a "better" image by offering the possibility to do something "good" to their guests.
