The Blue Sky Society is more than a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping people and animals in need; it’s a way of living. Just by thinking positively and being proactive, you are contributing to change for the better. Although we have big ideas and huge fundraising prospects, the ripple of change begins with YOU and me getting involved. The sky’s the limit for what we can achieve and our vision is to identify and manage various projects where people can give of their time, expertise, ideas and funds to recognized charities and support the valuable work they do. 
We want to connect you with causes you are passionate about and together make a genuine difference in this beautiful place we call ‘Mamma Africa’.  Blue Sky Society Trust focuses on raising funds and awareness for conservation, humanitarian and environmental projects. We also arrange unique once – off ‘Journeys with Purpose’ expeditions with a strong conservational focus.

Mission

Our mission is to protect, preserve, and improve life for people, wildlife, and communities in need.

Here at Blue Sky Society Trust, we wake up each day and do something we really love! We are inspired, and we get to inspire others to go out and do things that inspire them. It is truly the most wonderful thing in the world to be able to make a difference! In fact, the best part is figuring out the many ways we can do it. One of them is through our #JWP initiatives.

Journeys with Purpose combines ethical adventure travel in Africa with fundraising and giving back. Our expeditions each year are exhilarating and filled with adventure, fun and doing good.
Imagine the stories you could tell your grandchildren one day! Stories of exploring Mama Africa’s exquisite beauty and how you helped save lives! If this is a chapter you would like to write, then please find out more below. These expeditions often involve driving long distances over bumpy dusty roads, camping in remote areas, and at times being without cell service for days and of course loads of giving back through hands-on charity work. This is not a tour but rather a team expedition, and every member of the team is expected to pitch in with cooking, cleaning, camp set up etc. It is the experience of a lifetime, and we would love to have exploratory fun-filled compassionate spirits along for the ride. Are you up for the challenge? This is a LIMITED entry journey, which means only a few people get to experience this unforgettable never to be repeated experience. We only want the deserving to join us, legends who will be remembered for their awesomeness, and ability to go with whatever comes their way, and above all, those able to create smiles and good vibes out of thin air! Africa also teaches you how to take on situations with a bit of a sense of humour.

#JWP expeditions are not for everyone. Carla handpicks the expedition members, always looking for well-rounded individuals of various skills and interests. If you are an enthusiastic adventurer who’s passionate about conservation and who takes life as it comes, then our next #JWP expedition could be for you!

Our Projects

Journey With Purpose

Journeys with Purpose (#JWP) connects ethical adventure travel with the purpose of making a difference. These self-drive adventures are organised and led by Carla Geyser, the founder of the Blue Sky Society Trust (BSST) who has, to date, led many successful trips into Africa.

Environmental

At Blue Sky Society Trust, we’re passionate about being a voice for those who can’t speak, that includes the environment and all who inhabit it. Our activities include organising tree planting initiatives to educating communities about the environment.

Humanitarian

Whether it’s helping children with school shoes or advocating for education, Blue Sky Society Trust – Humanitarian aims to equip the underprivileged and help those who can’t help themselves.
