Adventure philanthropy
Adventure philanthropy is a new phrase for volunteering on steroids, often led by well-educated and experienced travelers. The idea is to pack an amazing expedition into the same fortnight as a project to help a local community, the type of thing old-school explorers like Sir Edmund Hillary were known for. Outfits like Roadmonkey — started by a former war correspondent for The New York Times — might take you to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro and then into a village where you’ll build a school.
Go here: Peru, Tanzania, Vietnam.
