After they graduated another challenge around us is job opportunities for them, so on our vision we have come up with new plan of creating College of Tourism and Business Management, this college will run under Non Profitable Organization known as Bush Drifters Foundation. The foundation will seek on searching the resources of operating the College, the main donor is Bushdrifters (T) Ltd through the profit they get from their safari package, so if you travel or book and pay for your safari with Bushdrifters, definitely part of your money is supporting the College.
