50 social enterprises. 5 years.
Over the next five years, the Planeterra Foundation will raise $5 Million CAD to integrate 50 new social enterprise projects into G Adventures itineraries by 2020, changing the lives of local people in communities in over 35 countries by providing them with access to the benefits of tourism.
Together, we can create opportunities and change lives through travel.
The first year of the 50 in 5 Campaign well underway, and Planeterra has been busy developing 11 new projects. Stay tuned as we complete the first set of projects and add details to the website. Our projects are always in need of extra funding, so please consider making a donation.
