Planeterra's Purpose

To improve people’s lives by creating and supporting social enterprises that bring underserved communities into the tourism value chain.

Planeterra connects social enterprises to the tourism marketplace by providing catalyst funding, capacity training, and a market link for small businesses supporting women, youth, and indigenous communities.


We help women find meaningful employment for the first time in their lives.

We help rural and indigenous communities access the tourism marketplace.

Our projects impact some of the most disadvantaged populations, who not only gain access to jobs, but also have a chance to redefine their identity and role in society.
