Meaningful. Purposeful. Downright unforgettable.

What makes us unique? Our story.

We didn’t start as a travel company—we started as a movement to change the world. For over 20 years, we’ve worked hand in hand with communities in Kenya, Ecuador and India, helping to empower them with the tools to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Along the way, we’ve met remarkable communities who have welcomed us into their homes and lives, sharing with us their stories. Today, we’re privileged to call them our friends and family, and because of that, they’re welcoming our travelers, too. Forget tour groups and buses— your team will have the opportunity to experience the joys and challenges of daily community life, along with getting to know a country and its people through an extraordinary, unforgettable lens. We invite you to join us at our signature lodges in Kenya, Ecuador and India for a travel experience you won’t find anywhere else. Go beyond a safari to walk in the footsteps of families in rural Kenya, trek the Amazon jungle to meet the indigenous communities who call it home and discover India’s vibrant culture through the eyes of locals. With our over 20- year history of working with our charity partner, WE Charity, we’ve formed close bonds with local communities around the world, giving us the honor of offering our travelers an authentic, immersive travel experience. Our travelers connect with the people and places around them—joining families to collect water, participating in cultural traditions and even having the opportunity to contribute to a local project. This is a travel experience that stays with you.

Demi’s story

“I wanted a memorable and meaningful way to celebrate, rather than throw a big birthday bash. I knew traveling and volunteering with ME to WE would give me the opportunity to have a life- changing experience that my family, friends and I would never forget. There’s been so many amazing things that have happened on this trip. When I go home I don’t know how I’m going to describe this to anybody—there’s something about just being here that I can’t describe. It was an incredible experience and I really feel like this has had a huge impact on my life.” Demi Lovato Founders and Friends Trip

Geraldine’s story

“The first visit to Kalthana was such a memorable occasion and one that I will never forget. I have a vivid image in my mind of stepping out of the car and hearing all this beautiful singing and flashes of bright blue down the hill as the children and adults of the Kalthana School greeted us with such hospitality. I was taken by the hand by a shy but bright eyed young boy aged about seven years. I believe his name was Nawara and he and I squatted down on the ground together and tied friendship bands around each other’s wrists, which was a very special moment indeed.” Geraldine Prosser Founders and Friends Trip
