The True Travel Foundation was founded in 2016 with one clear mission: to ensure the funds we raise together with our clients make an actual difference to those in need, by seeking and supporting grassroots projects around the world. For 2023, we are continuing our focus on our two community projects in India and Zambia and have set a target to raise £10,000 for each project by the end of the year.
Last year, we were immensely proud to announce our most recent partnership with Seawilding, a marine restoration project based on the west coast of Scotland.
We marked this partnership with a starting donation of £25,000 together with Weatherbys Bank. This donation will fund the training of four divers, which will enable the team to accelerate their Seagrass Restoration Programme and reach the goal of replanting 80 hectares of seagrass across Loch Craignish.
This partnership marks the beginning of a monumental shift in how people choose to travel. We are genuinely optimistic about the potential it harbours and are eternally grateful to Seawilding for their continuous work and commitment. We encourage all our clients, partners and friends to join us in the support of such a groundbreaking initiative. To learn more about why this partnership is so important, read on below.
Each year, we will continue our commitment to donate to the projects that we have chosen to support, all of which the team at True Travel are particularly connected to and passionate about.
