Komba Safaris is a pilot project spearheaded and financed by Rotarians in California, Rotary Club of Los Altos (San Francisco Bay area) and Kindness in Action, Inc. USA (KIA). It was inspired by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and is being implemented by the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya. The WCK created a key program (Komba Safaris) that educates students through outdoor learning by taking them to areas of wildlife importance where they are taught how to conserve and appreciate wildlife and how that relates to the world and its ecosystems. The safaris expose students to common environmental challenges and how they can be addressed. The WCK has selected 17 primary school wildlife clubs from slum areas of Nairobi (Kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa, Kangemi, Kawangware) and just recently in Nanyuki, where the students participated in a specialized safari created by Rift Valley Adventures in Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
