BENEFITING: PHILANTHROPIC VENTURES FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2012
HOURS PLEDGED: 24
After cycling for 7 days through the Central Highlands of Vietnam, we'll head to Rach Gia where we'll begin the next portion of our adventure philanthropy expedition.
Over 20 familes' homes were destroyed in recent heavy rains in the Rach Gia village. This November Roadmonkey will return to Rach Gia and over three days, in cooperation with our non-profit partner, the Catalyst Foundation, we'll build a a home for a family chosen by the community.
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 TZIVA 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.
