Consistent with our mission to help conserve the environment and provide benefits to local communities, Classic Escapes had created a dynamic program that allows those communities to benefit not only from travel dollars, but also from the care and talent of travelers themselves.
The Global Philanthropy offers travelers on Classic Escapes programs opportunities to contribute to the lives of people we visit. Working with a wide range of volunteer organizations throughout the world, Classic Escapes can arrange projects lasting from a few hours to a few days for groups to experience the satisfaction of making a tangible difference in the lives of people. The entire group can work side-by-side with local people, painting schools and restocking libraries or providing basic medical treatment. Whether for an afternoon or a few days, these opportunities to volunteer will deeply enrich your experience of the country you visit. You'll have a deeper understanding of the country and a unique perspective of your destination and its inhabitants, gained from your personal experiences with its people.
There are also numerous projects Classic Escapes can assist with that have a conservation emphasis. Working with various field researchers, particularly in the continent of Africa, you can conserve wildlife for future generations to enjoy. Projects can include the African wild dog in Botswana and Zimbabwe, cheetahs in Namibia and Kenya, elephants and rhinos in East and Southern Africa, lions in Tanzania and Botswana, vultures in Namibia, giant turtles in South Africa (as well as in Costa Rica), hippos in Zambia...the list is endless. Just tell us what wildlife you're interested in and we can find the suitable project for you. Contact us for more information on the various Global Philanthropy programs we offer and how we can set a program up just for you.
