The idea of The Generous Traveler was born during a trip in Sri Lanka in 2017. While traveling around, I realized that it was terribly difficult to know who was doing good on the ground. If only the information was within reach, I thought, we could all contribute to causes that matter to us in the countries that we visit. We could build connections that last beyond the return back home.
From that point on, I decided to launch a digital platform that would connect global travelers with local charities and organisations doing good, with the aim to encourage giving back while we travel.
The Generous Traveler is a platform presenting curated content about charities and social enterprises at local destinations, organised by themes such as Poverty, Education, Conservation etc. The organisations are hand-picked from various sources that have screened them for seriousness and relevance. There is a DONATE button next to each featured organisation, as well as VOLUNTEER, VISIT, SHOP. The page AFRICA is live, the other continents will soon follow.
How it works:
