Travelers: When you travel you may come across a village, school or community that inspires you to want to give-back, contact us to see if we can coordinate with local ground operators in the community to insure that your goal is fulfilled. We may be able to structure the program to allow your donation to qualify for a tax deduction in the US. Read on for examples of successful projects that helped local people. The Chorten Nebu Monastery project is a good example.
Tour Operators: Consider creating a Give-Back
program in communities that are key to the success of your business. Organize
the project so that your travelers might wish to contribute and further
benefit the community. Donations may be tax deductible in the US. Read
on for examples of how others have made giving-back a part of their core
business plan. The Project
Luangwa and the Explore
Safari - Direct Impact Africa are a good examples.
Generosity in Action provides a structure for travelers to support local villages and people. Coordination with tour operators and tour leaders insure that donations are properly applied to the projects intended.
Generosity in Action assists in having controls in place and can provide a tax-deductible foundation for travelers' generosity. Projects range from providing text books to schools in Peru to digging a well and building a school in Burma to coordinating donations for many projects in southern Africa.
Review recent programs, learn how travelers initiate
projects, and how to support existing charitable organizations.
