How would you like to use your skills to help women entrepreneurs in Malawi? To have the opportunity to use your experiences to work with women and students from a different culture and background.
Kate Webb, ASB member and founder of Orbis Expeditions says "I am passionate about giving women in Malawi the chance to connect with ladies from around the world, in order to drive their businesses and organisations forward. I am a firm believer that sustainable development must come from economic empowerment. Importantly, this involves a shift away from traditional charitable giving.
"Dom (my husband) and I are committed to creating expeditions which combine adventure with the opportunity to use skills to support local initiatives. Our team members question global view points and their perceptions of sustainable development. They choose to book with us because we challenge the idea of travel, push the boundaries of voluntourism and are committed to ensuring sustainability throughout our work in Malawi
"In 2019, we have two incredible women's adventure teams heading to Malawi"
If you want to travel with a purpose next year then there are two opportunities to get involved:
Women's Challenge (May 2019)
