No passion is more core to who we are as a responsible travel company than social development. Collaborating with international foundations and partners on the ground, we have established relationships with non-profit organizations (NGOs) that have a proven track-record of making a positive impact in the areas of poverty and hunger eradication, public health or universal education. We encourage all of our members to take a few hours or even days out of their trip to visit with these NGOs, learn about the challenges faced, and provide some volunteer or philanthropic support. We build in an automatic donation into the price of every experience and do not make a profit on these modules. While we try to provide opportunities for interaction with local people, our priority is to protect human dignity and ensure our experiences never degenerate into exploitation or voyeurism.
