Planeterra has announced the recipients of this year’s Global Community Tourism Fund.

Through this program, the nonprofit provides small grants of up to $3,000 USD, as well as community-specific training and mentorship to help local entrepreneurs and communities scale up and improve existing experiences.

Eighteen organizations from around the globe were selected for their outstanding proposals and compelling vision for using tourism as a catalyst for community development.

“These organizations have demonstrated a deep commitment to responsible travel, showcasing innovative initiatives to promote cultural exchange, environmental conservation, local economic development, empowerment and more,” said Evie Nhdlovu, manager at the Global Community Tourism Network.

“Their projects have the potential to create a lasting positive impact on their communities while offering visitors the opportunity to engage in meaningful and more responsible travel experiences.”

As part of Planeterra’s support, each recipient will be granted financial assistance and logistical support from the nonprofit.

Additionally, the Global Community Tourism Fund recipients will have the opportunity to share their journey through various platforms.
