Azura Giving Back

Giving Back Honeymoon Registry

Uplifting local communities has always been part of Azura Retreats’ philosophy. Now, we are thrilled to introduce a new initiative that gives newlyweds who spend their honeymoon with us, the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the local people.

With our Giving Back Honeymoon Registry, you can choose how you’d like to make a difference. Whether you sponsor a school student or supplies for our newly opened Community Clinic, your donation will have a real and lasting impact.

Benguerra Island Primary School: $60

The primary school serves over 400 children from ages 5 through to 13 years old. Every $60 will assist 5 school children with their stationery requirements for an entire year.

High School in Vilanculos: $200

The Rainbow Fund supports 28 children attending high school in Vilanculos. These are all children that completed their primary schooling at the Benguerra Island school and are now boarding in Vilanculos and attending two different high schools. Every $200 will assist one of these children to attend high school for an entire year and covers the school fees, stationary, boarding fees and medical care.

Football Kit per Child: $30

Almost every student at Benguerra Primary School is football mad and the school pitch sees plenty of action before, during and after lessons. A complete football kit (excluding boots) is around $30 and is certain to brighten a budding football star’s day.

Wedding Breakfast: $200 + $30 pp

Celebrate your nuptials with members of the local Benguerra community at a wedding breakfast organised and hosted by Azura Retreats. A flat fee of $200 applies, plus $30 per head for every member of the community you’d like to share in the occasion with you.
