World Expeditions Launches Dedicated Website for its “Voluntourism” Division

July 4, 2013 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Leading Australian adventure travel company, World Expeditions, has launched a new website dedicated to its not-for-profit, voluntourism division, Community Project Travel
522639The Community Project Travel website has been built as a satellite website to the company’s main website and provides users with easy access to the complete range of voluntourism itineraries which currently include community development and conservation projects in Tanzania, Kenya, Peru, Vietnam, Nepal and Australia.

Although the fast growing ‘voluntourism’ sector has been the focus of some scepticism over recent years, World Expeditions is proud to say that its voluntourism offerings are well planned, considered and sustainable.

522633Since the program commenced in 2005 we have completed 39 community development and conservation projects across many countries; including 10 in Australia, 13 in Nepal, 5 in Peru, 3 in each of Vietnam and Tanzania, 2 in India, and 1 in each of Kenya, Cambodia and Laos. This result was made possible by the combined effort of more than 400 travellers from across the globe, who dedicated 3 or 4 days of their adventure holiday to complete a project.”Our method for accessing sustainable and meaningful projects is based on decades of experience, well-established and trusted partnerships with our local operators as well as a tried and tested formula of what makes for a successful project – both for the traveller and the host community” says Responsible Travel Manager, Donna Lawrence. “We are very careful to ensure that our project work provides solutions to real problems that are identified by the host community, that it empowers and involves the host community, that it provides a transference of skills across both parties and that it reflects our Responsible Travel policies.

Visit to discover our range of up-coming projects, to watch footage from previous projects completed and to learn how we can tailor make itineraries to include community project work for private groups.
