Starting in 1992, we began sending people all around the world to leave a positive impact on local communities. In 2011, we started to focus on group trips, working with a wide range of organizations, from universities to girl guides.
We understand that every group is different and will customize a trip according to the needs and wishes of your business.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has evolved over the last 30 years. Companies are taking greater responsibility for their effects on environmental and social wellbeing, with international corporate volunteering being integral to this.
Go beyond simple donations. Launch annual trips for your employees, whether through a lottery, a selection process, or as a reward for your highest achievers. This will result in better company engagement, increased levels of pride and satisfaction, and an overall sense of accomplishment.

What Others Say
"We were very happy with the result of our building work on the trip. We really enjoyed interacting with the kids, getting a section of the site fully completed, and exploring what Kathmandu had to offer. Everyone in the team made a significant contribution on the project and arrived home with memorable experiences to ponder and share.
It was an amazing trip, the children and people were so positive and generous. How they live and get on with life was so inspiring. We don’t know how lucky and fortunate we really are."
- Chris Badcock - Team Leader, SmithCorp Charitable Trust, Nepal 2016
"As soon as I saw the application, I was dying to apply. The twelve of us came together from all over the world; we didn’t know each other before we arrived and we have formed a really unique bond over this project. A lot of us come from first world countries and have never seen this kind of poverty before so a lot of us had a wide variety of emotions when we first arrived. But Dean, our building manager, has been absolutely spectacular at making us all feel so comfortable."
- Carine Kinch – Pearson Education Canada
