Travel broadens One’s Mind. With travel comes understanding, respect and a huge responsibility. Travel also heightens our awareness of the differences between people, cultures, religions, and circumstances. In Australia, we are very fortunate to live a privileged, with some exceptions, lifestyle. But not everyone is so lucky.
To Move Forward You Have to Give Back – Oprah Winfrey
Steve and I have had the privilege to visit many countries throughout the world, and we have lived in several of these. We have seen the wealth in developed countries. We have seen the poverty in countries newly independent or resource poor. Poverty is often the by-product of war, of famine, and unfortunately corruption. But poverty is also a by-product of limited or no education.
So, while we travel, whether it is for a Life Change Retreat or on an Life Changing Journey we believe in ‘giving’ to the communities we visit. Just small stuff to say ‘thanks’ for sharing your lives with us. Life Change Retreats will, wherever possible, employ local businesses to manage our logistics. We want to ensure our fun, enjoyment and personal growth allows for the growth of the communities we visit.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you, to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
