Last year, XOEvents started organizing fun and meaningful activities with its clients with an amazing South African organization called See-Saw-Do. See-Saw-Do is a social enterprise that uplifts and transforms environments where children live, learn and play. This year, our partnership with See-Saw-Do is strengthening and we are planning on new and exciting projects to incorporate for our clients’ trip to South Africa!

South Africa is a developing country that offers lots of opportunities for authentic encounters and opportunities to help others. The social activity will be an inspiring, true and fun experience that will put you in contact with the real South Africa and its people; in this case mostly children and their school environment. It often involves games, painting, and refurbishments of classes and furniture. These activities are meaningful for incentive travelers in South Africa and those social actions are available across all our destinations thanks to our partner’s network invested in sustainable development.

“As a collective, we are motivated by a desire to use design to create amazing spaces for children where they live, learn and play.  We believe that every child deserves the absolute best environment/education/support to reach their full potential. It’s a big task and that’s why collaboration is key to make this work. We are fortunate to have teamed up with amazing NPO’s, organizations and companies with whom we have a shared vision.” – See Saw Do.
