It was a dark and stormy night in the Zimbabwe midlands in June 2004, when a group of well-travelled individuals with a mutual desire to do something great discussed how they could make a difference in the world. On that night, African Impact was born. We’ve come very far since that stormy night in 2004, and while our desire to make a difference remains steadfast, we have evolved into one of the most well-known and trusted facilitator of volunteer projects in Africa. Not only are we marking our 10th birthday with our inspired Beyond the Roots initiative, but we’re also giving our brand a fresh new face! Although we’ve kept our family-run feel and a personal connection to each and every one of our volunteers, African Impact has evolved and improved in many respects, and our new logo is, in its own right, a celebration of our successes. Our new logo reflects our growth, our passion and our connection with Africa and volunteering. The colours are down to earth and our favourite part of the new logo is the fill used in the outline of the continent – these tracks signify many journeys across Africa; the journeys our volunteers take and the journey we ourselves have experienced over the past 10 years. The last decade has seen changes not only in our operations and their scope in Africa, but other transformations that have occurred at the grassroots level. Our volunteers have given over one million hours to empowering communities, assisting wildlife and conservation efforts, and enriching countless classrooms – now that is something to be proud of! Our new logo celebrates these incredible volunteer achievements while keeping us connected to our roots as we move forward towards another decade of growth and making an even bigger impact in the years to come.
