Personally I think travelling with purpose through volunteering has a positive impact on everyone, from the volunteers themselves to the communities as well as the project coordinators.
While working with volunteers I've seen that these trips helps foster the next generation of changemakers. By thoughtfully expanding cultural knowledge, life skills, pushing comfort-zones.
Volunteers return from their travels transformed into global citizens as these project trips provides, a sense of being thankful -for life and building an understanding of our shared humanity. It generally helps everyone grow as a person (boosts personal -growth).
I believe Travel Creators can connect us with other travellers and help transform more global citizens.
