At Philanthropy Indaba, we match the world's most critical issues to the world's most compelling
destinations for a truly transformational experience - creating a new gold standard for meaningful
travel.

Philanthropy Indaba (“Indaba”) stands at the crossroads of philanthropy and travel: we create philanthropic journeys
which are moving events accessing the best of social enterprise and country/culture.
We enrich the worldview of
individuals and organizations through a thoughtful and curated approach to travel and the exploration of nature and
humanity.  

We provide a philanthropic framework, using travel as the means, to enable an individual or organization to go out into
the world and explore different cultures and ways of life, understand their challenges and solutions, meet innovative
social entrepreneurs, and see the impact on beneficiaries firsthand.

We expertly design exclusive journeys and life experiences, both at home and abroad, that nurture the mind and the
soul and bring individuals to a deeper exploration and understanding of themselves, each other, and the world in
which we live.

Each of our exclusive small-group  journeys and carefully crafted service and internship opportunities are created with
the intent of cultivating our clients’ ability to sharpen the focus of their philanthropy and strengthen the impact of their
engagement.

We work with individuals, families and organizations who have the capacity to support solutions on the ground as well
as the commitment to learn and build relationships.

Our goal is two fold:
  • To provide individuals with an exceptional journey that transforms the way our clients think about themselves
    and their role in creating meaningful change in the world.
  • To move resources of all kinds towards effective social enterprises worldwide.
