G Adventures strongly believes that tourism is a force for global good, and we’re committed to promoting sustainable solutions in communities around the globe.
G Adventures and their non-profit arm, the Planeterra Foundation deliver the greatest impact for disaster relief by supporting local communities year-round through their commitment to responsible tourism and social development. Established in 2003, Planeterra is G Advantures non-profit partner dedicated to ensuring communities touched by tourism benefit from the opportunities it provides.
Planeterra helps empower local people to develop their communities, conserve their cultures, and create humane and supportive systems for their endeavours. Planeterra manages over 50 social enterprises on all seven continents, that benefit women, at-risk youth, and rural and indigenous communities
Women make up over half of the tourism workforce and yet they are often underpaid and have limited opportunities to move into higher positions in their jobs. Planeterra helps women redefine their roles in society by providing life-changing access to education and job-training.
