- Community initiatives focus on the rural community partners that enable community-centric employment, joint ventures, education, training, social and health benefits, capacity building and infrastructure development.
- Culture initiatives focus on the 27 ethnic groups of Southern Africa to learn ideas, beliefs, values, and knowledge which constitute the shared bases of their social action. This also includes developing a code of ethics for tourist interaction with these ethnic groups.
- Commerce initiatives focus on the ecotourism offering and its sustainability in the modern world. Companies can only make a difference in Africa if they are doing well.
