Travelteerism: Combining Luxury Travel and Volunteering

[ 0 ] February 22, 2015 |

Guatemala-1Luxury travel and volunteering are two worlds that have never overlapped before. After all, luxury travel doesn’t always come with an altruistic factor.

Enter Travelteerism, where high-end experiences get more than a feel-good makeover.  No, Travelteerism offers its clients new perspectives on the country they’re visiting by working with local people on community projects. And for the NGOs that Travelteerism partners with? Unique opportunities for them to tap into the tourism market and also create relationships with people who otherwise they may never have ha the chance to meet.

Currently, Travelteerism runs highly custom and very tailored tours to Guatemala, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, India, and Eastern and Southern Africa, where they work with a variety of non-profit organizations that take travelers to indigenous villages to help out in schools, impoverished areas, or to contribute to local environmental efforts.
