Tiritose was launched in early 2019 as a an enterprising arm of Tiritose Trust, a registered, Zimbabwe-based, non-profit organisation. As a social enterprise, we are committed to greater standards of purpose, transparency and accountability, in accordance with impact standards pioneered by B Lab, a USA-based non-profit organisation that certifies companies worldwide for their positive impact beyond financial return. We are proud of our commitment to become a certified B Corporation and are the first Zimbabwe-based tourism operator to commence the certification process.
Our responsible and ethical travel programmes, including tours, educational, volunteer and internship placements offer participants with a unique, immersive, learning experience. Revenue from our programme fees directly helps support the development of Zimbabwe’s medical and educational institutions and frontline resources.
Our programmes facilitate dialogue and shared values by bringing together Zimbabwean professionals with international students and volunteer enthusiasts.
Since the launch of Tiritose Trust in 2015, our team has been the first Zimbabwe-based turnkey provider of cross-cultural exchanges through volunteering, and internship placements at matched organisations. Have a look at some of the reviews from past interns and volunteers, and check out our interview with the online magazine Zimbo Jam – An Intro to Tiritose.
Now, as a social enterprise, we are taking our efforts one step further by formalising our relationship with Tiritose Trust in accordance with global standards, including GIIRS – the Global Impact Investing Ratings System – and Iris Impact Metrics.
We believe in the power of business to transform society by bringing viable and economically-sound solutions to Zimbabwe’s most urgent social and environmental challenges. As a company, we have formed partnerships with impact-focused consultants and companies that make a meaningful contribution to sustainable development.
