"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.

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

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.
