Women make up over half of the tourism workforce and yet they are often underpaid and have limited opportunities to move into higher positions in their jobs. Planeterra helps women redefine their roles in society by providing life-changing access to education and job-training.
Youth in many parts of the world have limited access to formal education, and have few opportunities for jobs. Planeterra supports programs that help at-risk youth develop skills to work in tourism and hospitality, and provides them with a chance to create positive life paths.
Planeterra supports programs that recognize the unique offerings that indigenous and rural communities have for tourism. We help to create meaningful connections between travellers and indigenous people through social enterprise.
