BENEFITING: PHILANTHROPIC VENTURES FOUNDATION
EVENT: roadmonkey 2012
EVENT DATE: Jul 10, 2012
The Bwejuu Charitable School provides literacy, computer skills and nutrition to Bwejuu's orphaned and underprivileged children, as well as education and training programs to the village's adult population.
In July, Roadmonkey will partner once again with the Bwejuu Charitable School to build a multi-purpose building that will house an initiative to train local Zanzibarians in tailoring, giving them a valuable income-generating skill.
More about the Bwejuu Charitable School can be found here.
Philanthropic Ventures Foundation (PVF) is the US-based recipient of your donations, making tax-deductions possible. PVF, via Generosity in Action, will be sending your collected funds to the Bwejuu Charitable School in Zanzibar on June 25, 2012.
Our expeditions are carefully planned to provide you with not only a first-rate geographic adventure but also the chance to accomplish something powerfully good in the world.
Roadmonkey was created to challenge convention, venture off the path and break the needless rules that prevent you from having the most authentic travel experience possible. We’re not a traditional travel outfitter, nor are we a volunteer organization. Rather, we’re a unique - some might even say weird - hybrid of both.
Roadmonkey gives you the chance to safely go farther into the world than you probably have in the past, and deeper than you could on your own. We give you the tools, literally, to help people in need sustainably help themselves. All this happens in the company of a few other accomplished & like-minded individuals, your expedition colleagues, who often become friends for life.
We call it adventure philanthropy - a ridiculously clunky phrase for a relatively simple idea - because we believe in the art of the experience, and in the value of learning how other lives are lived as personally as possible, no matter how far away.
