Responsible tourism: House renovation volunteering in Portugal

Environment

This program aims at renovating the houses of people who were identified as living in very poor conditions in the city. The beneficiaries are usually elderly living alone, families or people with disabilities who live in houses with no electricity, running water or sanitation. In other cases their houses are in danger of collapsing for lack of maintenance that the people living there don’t have the resources to pay for. Travelers will volunteers their time contributing to give these people a new life transforming the place they sleep in an actual home.

Accommodation and meals
The accommodation you will stay in is a non-profit which has mission to provide access to health care and food support to people living in poverty.
This accommodation also implements the best practices of recycling and energy saving.

Group Size
On this project, we work with small groups usually up to 5 strong to ensure that we don't put too much pressure on the natural resources and to offer a personalized experience.

Our team
We live our values and promises in our day-to-day lives! Through energy conservation measures, responsible shopping and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. Our company is being certified as a B-Corp.

Community

The technical team takes into consideration the best environmental practices on the renovation of the houses. The materials used on the renovation are carefully selected considering environmental standards among others.

Transportation
During the program, we encourage travelers to move around the city using the public transportation available in Porto. We teach every client how to use it and specifically how to go from the accommodation to the volunteer project. It is different from client to client as the house that is being renovated changes regularly.

Local sourcing
We only promote tourism experiences that respect local traditions and minimize social negative impacts. We preferentially suggest locally guided tours.

Our team
Through volunteer work, flexible working hours that promote a better work-life balance, and sourcing from local and socially and environmentally responsible suppliers we strive to apply our values to our everyday work ethic as a company. Our company is being certified as a B-Corp and compensate 100% of its emissions.
