About

What is Impact Travel?

A social movement focused on increasing awareness of the need for conscious sustainability when traveling, with a goal of increasing cultural awareness, economic benefit, and long-term wellbeing of local residents serving touristic destinations.

 

Our mission is to create a stable living environment in local communities highly influenced by the travel industry across the globe by utilizing sustainable methodologies to increase the wellbeing of regional citizens, a newfound understanding of cultural awareness, and economic benefits for all.

 

Our vision is a world where everyone has a travel mindset focused on helping others help themselves, their fellow man, and the environment.

 

The Impact Travel movement is a tool communities can use to help themselves.

About

What is the Foundation doing?

The Impact Travel Foundation (the “Foundation”) is a non-profit organization channeling travel as a changemaker, converting travel activities and people into a positive social impact for local communities. The Foundation uses its network, knowledge and financial resources to fund local projects, which are proposed locally, to build sustainability into communities.

As an example: we are working with local producers in Nicaragua in a regional effort to become a bigger part of the touristic supply chain by providing their goods. Our vision for Impact Travel is these producers selling their goods directly to local hotels and restaurants, who are in turn providing the goods to visitors.

Our long-term goal is to improve the availability of basic needs and improve living conditions in local communities in the destinations. While we have our own resources, we depend on the help of local groups and organizations, like other NGOs or non-profits. If you are interested in partnering with the Foundation, please contact us.

 

The Impact Travel Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
