In the spirit of giving back while still providing globetrotters with life-changing experiences, Exodus Travels is offering travellers the opportunity to share the gift of adventure with children who live in popular tourism destinations with their new Live Adventure, Give an Adventure campaign.
For every booking made between Jan. 7 and Feb. 28, the adventure tour operator, which hosts more than 600 journeys in over 100 countries worldwide, will send a child from a developing community on the trip of a lifetime with its responsible tourism initiative, The Inspiration Project.
Designed with input from the community and run by local Exodus guides, The Inspiration Project takes children from destinations around the world on safaris, hiking trips and cultural tours within their own home countries. Beginning in 2017, Exodus pledged to send 2017 children on a trip in a year, with the goal of inspiring a sense of ownership and pride in their homes’ cultural sites and natural settings. Since then, the tour operator has hosted more than 4,378 children on over 137 trips in approximately 28 countries.
“We realized many children from communities in the destinations we travel within don’t always have the opportunity to experience the history, culture and natural wonders that attract visitors to their home country,” says Robin Brooks, marketing manager. “With ‘Live Adventure, Give an Adventure,’ our travellers can kick off 2019 by giving kids around the world an unforgettable new experience – just by booking their next big trip.”
Inspiration Project trips for 2019 will include new adventures for communities in Cambodia, Laos, Kenya, Zambia.
