All it takes is one trip to Kenya to see schools being built in the Masai Mara which will send the first women of this region to college, and you'll immediately understand why visiting the local people is just as important as viewing the wildlife on safari. Or go for a walk through a Nairobi slum to understand the transformative power of giving back while on vacation.
Perhaps it will be building homes in a disaster area like Haiti and New Orleans, of late, or getting spiritual direction while hiking with a Rabbi up the Dolomites.
Remember that ActiveTravels doesn’t just mean active bodies, but active minds and active hearts. That’s why every year we donate a percentage of our membership profits to charities like Classroom in the Clouds, Heifer International, and the Red Cross.
