Working hard to ensure that all arrangements within our supply
chain, all the way from the participant's payment through to the employees on the project,
are set up to benefit each individual, business or organisation fairly and transparently, and
that transactions are entered into consensually and conducted freely. We ensure that
approximately 70% of our participant’s fees go directly to the destination country – thus
facilitating the sustained growth and development of local businesses.
Taking into consideration all impacts on the environment,
we endeavour to maintain a zero-tolerance attitude to any damage caused by our
participants at their respective host communities around the world. Our conservation
efforts range from protecting and studying endangered animals, facilitating sustainable
waste disposal mechanisms, and overseeing the care and upkeep of plant life. As a
company, we are also very mindful of minimizing paper consumption, so when possible
we prefer to utilise web-based communication.
Acting in such a way that our partners, our project staff, our volunteers and their families, all those who are directly impacted by our business, and our own staff are treated with respect and benevolence. By blending different cultures we endeavour to maximise the connection between our participants and the local community and ensure that our business is a genuine exchange of efforts and human capital.
