More Than A Travel Company! Changing Lives Through International Community Projects and Volunteerism

Lexy Sanguinetti, center, founding consultant of Sanguinetti & Company, LLC, shows members of Enkereri village, a traditional Maasai village in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve region, photos and video of themselves shot months earlier at their village. Here Lexy explains to the Maasai how the visual media was used in Florida and beyond, to share their authentic culture, bring increased education resources and trade markets to their village.

Sanguinetti and Company's international travel expertise is founded on decades of personal family history, but the Florida-based business is more than a travel company. Loaded with an in-depth knowledge of East Africa's potential, coupled with a clear understanding of US stakeholders' needs and expectations, the company has become a sought-after broker and consultant for various business products and services between the two regions.

Alexandra (Lexy) Sanguinetti, a Kenya native, has been leading the pride since 2013. She saw the need to bridge the gap between Africa and the USA from the moment she found herself juggling life between the two continents. The founding international business consultant now spends most of her time planning and executing unique travel experiences for American and Caribbean clients who wish to visit or do business in Africa. When she is not personally escorting travelers or designing the next custom group itinerary, Lexy is busy serving with nonprofit organizations or social enterprises on many levels.

Women working together on a plan

Earlier this year, Lexy brought together One Way Out (North Carolina), Design Lab Give (Miami) and Dream Sponsors (Florida) for a future sewing project to benefit participating girls and women, both in Kenya and in the USA. In what would be typical Lexy fashion, she is wearing more than one hat in the evolving project. Her creativity, expertise and resourcefulness lend well to the collective woman-power driving this meaningful effort. Sanguinetti and Company is committed to providing some of the resources and expertise needed to spearhead this priceless collaboration. Learn more about it here.
