travel vegan Thailand
Spending one week with the "Never Forget Elephant Foundation" in their newly opened elephant sanctuary;
Planning a 3 month tour of Thailand visiting every national park; trip will be split into 2 week segments.
We plan to create a base in the south of Thailand for visiting the islands and beach life.
Never Forget Elephant Foundation believes in humankind’s potential to be the best stewards in enabling endangered Asian elephants to thrive in a healthy, biodiverse habitat. We believe in compassionately showing up as a global community to support a model of respect and trust with local Karen Hill Tribe people, elephants and each other.
It is the goal of Never Forget Elephant Foundation to educate tourists and global supporters on the problems captive elephants face today in Thailand and how we can live in a way at home that positively impacts the well being of elephants and the health of our planet. Through this model, we create a tide of positive change that will impact the future of captive Asian elephants.
DAUGHTERS RISING EMPOWERS AT-RISK GIRLS TO END TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION IN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND BREAK THE CYCLE OF INTERGENERATIONAL POVERTY
There are more than 20 million slaves in the world today. According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which, 80% are female and half are children.
Daughters Rising takes a grassroots approach to working with at-risk populations and underserved ethnic minority communities. We believe that collaboration and long-lasting relationships that respect local culture are the best ways to enact meaningful change. We work with the most at-risk populations in Northern Thailand— ethnic minority women and refugees in underserved rural communities. We believe that by creating as many opportunities as possible for these women and girls, we can help them become strong leaders and advocates. For this reason, we take a multifaceted approach to our work— education, employment and outreach.
