Meaningful Trip

http://www.meaningfultrip.com

Meaningful travel is experiential, socially-responsible travel allowing travelers to make a difference and give back. Tours address and lend financial support to global development issues (women’s empowerment, youth, education, health, poverty-alleviation and social justice) in the countries we operate. Sometimes meaningful travel may include volunteer travel; however, the majority of times it does not.
