The Welcome Center was created by CISV, an International Association of Volunteers whose vocation is to enable people of all ages to experience cultural diversity. The center offers a range of educational activities that develop multicultural understanding for children, adolescents and adults alike. The Welcome Center has also developed tourism activities based on Community involvement. In this way, it   contributes to the development and self-reliance of villages around the Ruvubu National Park, enabling them to generate income which is then distributed among the eco-guards, the management team and the surrounding populations.
