Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: House renovation volunteering in Portugal


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, the 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 volunteer their time to contribute to giving these people a new life transforming the place they sleep, in a place to call 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.


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.

During the program, we encourage travelers to move around the city walking or 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. The place 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 CO2 emissions.
