On Tuesday, The Travel Corporation (TTC) and seven of its brands announced the launch of their new global partnership with ME to WE by offering immersive volunteer trips for all generations across the world.
TTC’s partnership with ME to WE will give travelers the chance to visit India, the Ecuadorian Amazon and Kenya. Using TTC’s brands—Trafalgar, Contiki Holidays, Insight Vacations, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, Lion World Travel, African Travel, Inc. and Adventure World—and the TreadRight Foundation, customers will be able to book extensions for ME to WE Immersive Volunteer Trips which will include guided vacations, luxury river cruises, safaris and more.
To ensure a fully immersive cultural experience, guests will stay in the local communities in comfortable lodges that are owned and operated by ME to WE. The cost of meals, ground transfers, transportation and local sightseeing excursions are included in the price.
“Through our not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, we have been working to create a positive impact to promote sustainable tourism worldwide, with carefully selected partners and projects and some of the numerous local communities we visit,” TTC CEO Brett Tollman said in a statement. “Many of our travelers are open to experiencing meaningful travel with unforgettable, moving experiences. We are therefore very excited to be supporting ME to WE’s outstanding immersive volunteer trips, which we will help promote with our 10,000 team members across the globe and with the involvement of our loyal travel partners globally.”
For TTC’s excursions to India, visitors will have the chance to help local women collect water for their families in Rajasthan, learn to make chapatti bread or even build a classroom for future generations. As for the trips to Ecuador, travelers will learn about the indigenous Kichwa culture and work on a sustainable development project.
During the Kenyan journeys, guests will work with the women of the Maasai and Kispigis communities to learn the craft of beading, which helps them earn a sustainable income and provide for their families.
