My name is Luca D’Ottavio, and I am the co-founder of M15588, top provider of Ethno and Participative Tourism in West Africa. Our company is a non-profit association whose main goal is to promote meaningful vacations aiming to bring solidarity and assistance to West African populations, mainly in Senegal and the proximity. M15588 stands for Human Experience Linking Project: our dream was to create circuits inspired enough to express the infinite beauty of the African lands and populations. Two types of trips are provided: discovery tours and volunteer adventure itineraries.

Our Volunteerism unique itineraries associate a specific community-based development project to an adventure trip. Days of visits and excursions are smoothly blended to moments of sharing and understanding, for a deeper sense of integration. We conceive a journey as the desire to discover the elsewhere and live it from the inside, as the instinct to travel towards an unknown country and to reveal its roots. We propose more than an adventure tour; we invite you to enjoy itineraries created for you to live a unique experience, to bring you where the others haven’t arrived yet.

We have prepared an exclusive cocktail blending sightseeing, discovery and awareness, adding then the main element of a perfect journey: the human contact. We will take you to live moments of joy and deep inspiration with groups of kids, families and artists thanks to the opportunity of participating in our Community Development Projects.

Our proposals are exclusively conceived to be accessible to everybody: they are but the pretext to live an amazing and meaningful holiday, for a unique and authentic cultural integration. These projects are conceived in a way that all of the resources are redistributed among local populations: families, workers and artists, they all happily participate to our missions!
We directly know families and groups of local people that is why we can easily have access to their real needs and demands.

An effective policy of responsible tourism permeates each and every action of ours: all of these projects allow a true aid to the population and to a development of the Region, according to our travel philosophy and beliefs. The act of sharing and exchanging is the key to open many doors: getting through them is the beginning of an unforgettable travel experience, with its special encounters and precious discoveries. The sounds, rhythms and emotions will fulfill our spirit for the time to come.

 1  Sandra Une voyage different 2007-07-27
Ce qui a motivé notre choix, c’est l’envie d’un voyage différent. L’idée d’associer aide et loisir nous a séduite des le départ. Ce que nous ... view more avons vécu va bien au-dele1; de nos espérances…
Nous passerons rapidement sur la partie loisir qui a été assurée et organisée par HELP TRAVEL d’une façon parfaite et agréable (logistiques, excursions, farniente…), car le principal pour nous n’est plus ici…
Nous avons aidé une famille à organiser le baptęme de leur petit dernier, mais pas en donnant uniquement de l’argent, comme pour toutes les associations (pour se donner bonne conscience mais sans trop s’impliquer). Nous avons participer et avons donné de notre temps (achat, préparatif etc..) du début à la fin, dans le bonne humeur ambiante et communicative.
Cette fęte qui a duré 2 jours, a été magique… Tant de personnes réunies racontant leur vie, festoyant, échangeant leurs idées et leurs émotions, ce souvenir nous aide encore dans les jours un peu grisâtres de notre vie quotidienne.
Les festivités ont été couronnées par un spectacle qui n’a pas besoin d’une salle prestigieuse (seulement le sable pour scene) pour atteindre la perfection. Les enfants ont effectués des dances africaines au son des djembés et de bâtons cognés les uns contre les autres avec tellement de grâce et de joie que nous n’avons pu retenir nos émotions comme il est de bon ton chez nous. Mais c’est cela qui est bon, et que nous avions perdu. Quel bonheur de les retrouver !!!
Le retour a été difficile, mais notre coeur est avec nos amis de Casamance a qui nous pensons souvent et avec qui nous avons gardé le contact.
Nous les remercions pour tout ce qu’ils nous ont apporté, simplement, avec leur coeur…
