HH Philantro – Travel:
Mission trips – a way to serve our world
Heightened Hearts mission trip programs operates under a philanthro-voluntourism model.
Voluntourism is the combination of volunteering and sightseeing, enabling travelers to not only visit the scenic highlights of a destination, but also to engage in a meaningful way with the people and/or the environment, by giving back in a hands-on way.
Main benefit of the Philanthro-voluntourism that our clients bring to a community are the funds they provide to make a needed project happen which could not otherwise be afforded, such as a house, a medical clinic, library or disabled-accessible bathroom for a paraplegic and much more.
The volunteering aspect is really for our clients’ benefit, as this is when they interact with the local people, which is powerful, and is what can change mind-sets and attitudes when they return home.
What can be better then in addition to going on your destination tour, enjoying incredible sightseeing and all that the particular destination has to offer, as well as tobe able to enriching people’s lives through travel and service.
We are committed to providing you with authentic experiences with real people. HH Philantro Travel is your chance to get immersed in the local culture and to make a difference in the world.
Almost all our guides and tour leaders are born and raised in the country they work in, and are knowledgeable about their country’s history and culture, as well as the challenges facing their country today.
