While international service trips are not a new concept, social enterprise Me to We is offering family volunteer trips where the entire family can go to developing countries like Kenya and India to make a difference. These unique travel opportunities allow everyone to volunteer by building projects in Free the Children communities, and giving community members access to basic needs like education, food security, clean water, health care and alternative income opportunities.
In addition to volunteering, families engage with the local community members and get immersed in the local culture. Adventure and discovery is a fourth component key to every Me to We family volunteer trip. This life changing opportunity allows families to bond with each other and learn about important social justice issues while giving back.
