We’re hoping you’ve worked out already that a GBGA trip marries the concepts of spending your time, money and effort to do something good, and then enjoying the rest of your adventure traveling around the country you’ve got to know.
Each trip is usually around 2 weeks long, our travelers all meet in one destination, often the Capital of the country, and from there the trip breaks down into 2 sections. The social-good project, and the adventure travel. In a 14 day trip, this would normally break down to 3 or 4 days at our local project and 10 or 11 days traveling around the country.
The project vary depending on what our partner communities need. These have ranged from dormitories for their orphan kids, playgrounds for the primary school, new learning centres, to simply donating sporting goods and food rations to families in need. In terms of how YOU will be helping, expect to get your hands dirty! Painting, shoveling, minor building, and of course keeping the kids amused while the chaos ensues!
For most construction projects, we use your generous donations to hire local engineers, local labourers and local tradesmen to get the bulk of the expert work done, so when you guys arrive, we’re there to add the final touches, and give the project the TLC it wouldn’t otherwise get. Decorating, furnishing, finalising and opening the project.
For the travels, it’s time for a real adventure! We aim to see all the top spots in the country where we carry out our project, so expect epic sites, beautiful buildings, local food, maybe the odd night train here and there. It’s fun, it’s quite fast paced but of course you get some downtime too. There’s a reason why our volunteers come back time and time again, we hope you can come and see why that is!
This is adventure travel at it’s best. Give back, make an impact, and have the adventure of your life.
For starters, a lot. GiveBack GiveAway trips are for people that want to have a crazy adventure but also do something meaningful.
GiveBack GiveAway trips are all about high impact projects with a small group of people that assemble, construct and complete projects in a short amount of time. It’s hard to explain but watch what some of our travellers thought about it. After that we responsibly explore and enjoy the country to soak up every amazing experience it has to offer.
GiveBack we don’t enter areas for a quick photo op and move on. High impact, make a difference, and then off to explore the region. Boom.
