Charities and partners

Being a responsible company is a large statement, something that has to be entwined within the very fibre of a company. Discover the charities and projects we support as part of this.

"Responsible In Everything We Do" is one of our five core values here at Explore. This includes supporting charities and projects in the destinations that we visit. Each year we review the charities and projects that we support overseas, and find new ways of working alongside our agents and tour leaders to help empower the local communities we visit.  

Discover the main charities and projects we support below. On top of these charities that we support financially, we sponsor many which our customers can visit or support whilst on our trips. Trips include:

Cool Earth

In 2008 Explore became the first major travel company to offset carbon emissions. We work alongside Cool Earth to support indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest through community engagement, education and empowerment.

Explore is supporting 16 Ashanika villages, 14 rainforest schools, funding emergency evacuations and family cooperatives. To date we have saved over 800 acres of rainforest, 195,000 trees and over 210,000 tonnes of CO2 has been locked in.

Send a Cow

Send a Cow is our long-term charity partner and we’re thrilled to be working with them. 

Set up back in 1988, Send a Cow gives African farming families the hope and the means to create a sustainable future from their land. Importantly, Send a Cow also works to tackle barriers to social development such as gender inequality and negative stereotyping to help those most marginalised to thrive.

Toilet Twinning

Toilet Twinning are a UK based charity with one commendable goal – to flush away poverty!
