About Us

StayAway is a charitable organisation that organises gap year placements, work experience, and volunteer internships in Africa  and in doing so, aims to assist rural African communities. We seek to promote a tourism that has an inclusive approach to our diverse people, a tourism that is meaningful to the disadvantaged people of Africa, and a tourism that serves to inform visitors about the dynamism of our new approach.

Back in 2008 when Ras Austin Rizzah started StayAway as Ethical Encounters, he had a vision. He wanted to give everyone people a chance to explore the Africa and by doing so discover their potential and become members of a community working together serving through thrilling adventures together. After re-launching in May, 2015 it became StayAway Volunteer Travel, a growing sustainable development charity, providing work exchange combined with volunteering around Africa for people taking a gap year, career break, retirement or time out from education, employment or training. School, corporate and adventure expeditions for groups can be tailor-made to suit specific requirements.
