G Adventures and its non-profit partner Planeterra have announced five new projects as part of the Project 100 initiative, a commitment to have 100 Planeterra projects built into G Adventures tours by the end of 2020.
Coinciding with International Women’s Day, the new projects focus on empowering women and their communities. More than 2,800 women will benefit from the 3,000 travellers expected to visit these projects annually.
With a strong focus on empowering and supporting women, the new projects include a visit to a cultural and craft experience in Jerusalem where stories are shared and local handicrafts are showcased, as well as a stop in Kerala, India where 10 local women create community through hospitality and traditional food.
With these projects, the total number of projects now included in the company’s tours has reached 85. Each year, more than 100,000 travellers visit Planeterra projects impacting the lives of more than 60,000 local people.
