Give BACK- Backpackers Active for Communities and Kids. While traveling I had the privilege of being involved in the founding and facilitating of Kids at the Lake Creations in PP, Cambodia. That experience made me think about promoting the idea of socially- conscience traveling. Give BACK (when founded) will harness the resource of packpakers' time and energy, together with the needs, strengths and initiatives of local communities, to create a work-force for change. The project will have branches in all major backpacker hubs and will provide volunteering opportunities for travelers- from one day to 3 month long projects. Volunteers will earn a meaningful experience & deeper understanding of the consequences and effect of their passing by as travelers, while local communities will receive man-power build schools, trees replanted, beaches cleaned etc. locals will be the ones create the agenda for change and take part in it, therefor the achievements will be sustainable for the future.
oh, so many things! I am a curious kid...
