Visit.org

Submitted: Thursday, 14 July 2016

Based in NYC and founded in early 2015, visit.org is a technology platform for curated travel experiences offered by nonprofits around the globe.Travelers use visit.org to add half- to multi-day immersive experiences to their itinerary, and revenues are channeled back to the local community through the host organizations. For example, travelers hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu can use visit.org to book a half-day workshop with artisan weavers in the nearby Andean highlands. Proceeds from their visit will help support Peruvian women from marginalized communities and provide them with a comprehensive education.
