Tropical Experience Travel Services - Tours of the Philippines
PROJECT 2020: 1 Traveller = 1 Donation to a Student
Donations to support the Young Focus Foundation in Tondo (Manila), to help economically disadvantaged students.
For every single traveller who will book a trip to the Philippines with Tropical Experience between February 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021, we will donate 5 € to the "Young Focus Foundation". Young Focus grants scholarships to indigent students of the communities of Tondo, Manila.
UPDATE - Despite the suspension of international tourism, we were able to collect the needed amount through donations made by our followers and friends on social media!
Description and Past Projects: 4 Years of Actions for Social Sustainability
In 2017 and 2018 we organized two fundraising campaigns to support Young Focus, a remarkable Foundation that operates in the “Smokey Mountain” area in Tondo, Manila. It's one of the most marginalized areas in the capital of the Philippines.
In 2019, we renewed our committments with a project fully-funded by us: we donated 5 € for each traveller that booked a trip to the Philippines with us. We were able to donate a full scholarship of the value of 24,000 Philippine Pesos, used to help a college student! Read her about the 2019 Project.
It's 2020 and here we are again, with a new edition of our 2019's project! If you'll book a trip with us and you'll be part of this useful initiative (with no additional charges)!
Young Focus provides skilled assistance to children and young adults in order to access education and have the opportunity to change their lives.
The Reasons of This Project
We are very convinced that education can be a key factor to bring real change into the lives of these people, of their families and their communities. Education can make these young individuals independent, open new opportunities and most of all give them the chance to secure remunerative and stable jobs that will help them in building different and better lives.
- the donation to Young Focus will be executed in one single payment at the end of the indicated term (after January 31, 2020). The reporting, including official receipts and other relevant documents, will be posted in this web page.
- this campaign doesn't impose any additional costs to our clients. The amount of 5 € per traveller will be donated only by Tropical Experience without additional charges or costs to clients or other partners.
