In Kenya orphanage tourism is regarded as community based tourism which incorporates eco- tourism, cultural and charity tourism. Some regard it as pro-poor tourism. Kenya has its share of many orphans some of which have come street children and some live within orphanages which have been run down due to lack of financial capability to feed the lesser African child. In Kenya Worldmate Travel & Tour Co.
