Far-flung Travels volunteers time, money and photography to charities, organizations and causes it believes in.
Those of us who travel gain a better understanding of cultures that differ from our own. With that knowledge, comes a broader understanding of the social, political and economic divides that often separate us. Philanthropic travel is the natural bridge between the global traveler and the socio-economic needs of the globe’s communities that inspire us to visit. While there is a time and place for travel for travel’s sake, traveling with a purpose gives us meaning where ever our paths lead.
Far-Flung Travels gives back in the following ways:
1. VOLUNTEERISM: Writing, photography and video are powerful media through which to communicate, educate and bridge divides. We help organizations that are interested in drawing attention to their cause through on-location photo- and video-journalism projects.
2. MICROFINANCING: We offer financial support on an individual case-by-case basis to meet the needs of the poor in developing economies.
