TRAVEL WITH PURPOSE on a CHOICE EXPEDITION
Some people travel to see the difference. Others travel to be the difference. CHOICE Humanitarian expeditions offer the opportunity for both.
Be a part of the impact in the field—join in our work to reduce poverty in rural communities.
Equal parts adventure and connection, with rewarding work and lots of play—all of this in one experience that makes a difference in others' lives and your own.
For one week, participants base in a rural community. As a group, you'll spend your days learning about the many dimensions of poverty and poverty solutions at both a global and community level. You'll work hard as you support community-managed projects that span from constructing classrooms, stoves, or hospitals, to trenching water systems or sawing school desks. Together with community members, you'll dance, you'll play, you'll exchange ideas, and you'll expand your understanding of what it means to be a global citizen.
PARTICIPANTS CAN BE:
- Solo travelers
- And more

WHAT MAKES CHOICE EXPEDITIONS dIFFERENT?
With a CHOICE expedition, you’re investing in an experience that is meaningful and responsible. Our country teams and Certified Expedition Leaders (CEL) work together to make each part of your trip intentional and valuable:
We prioritize cultural exchange that support meaningful interactions, increased empathy, and more connectedness between expeditioners and community members.
We support sustainable projects that are identified through ethical rural development and are needed by the community for long-term poverty solutions. We don't only build projects—we build programs that build people.
All CHOICE expeditions are led by trained and experienced Certified Expedition Leaders (CEL) who coordinate and plan extensively with CHOICE local country directors and staff.
We employ a high-level of consciousness on the impact of visiting expeditions to ensure that trips infuse beneficial resources into the community (and not drain them).
Your investment in an expedition is maximized to make a difference—it does good for both you and the community.
Around 50% goes towards the costs of running the trip. The remaining 50% goes towards CHOICE’s mission, its operations, and executing projects that address poverty like the one that you’ll be working on.
