Our Foundation

Our Foundation

The True Luxury Travel Foundation was founded in 2016 with one clear mission: to use funds we raise in the most economical way possible to make a tangible difference to specific charitable projects around the world. For 2016, that focus is on two projects; one in South Luangwa, Zambia and the other in Jaipur, India. These are projects close to our hearts and we look forward to helping them develop in the coming months...

Our current charity projects

The Rucksack Project (Jaipur, India)

Rucksack project Jaipur IndiaThe True Luxury Travel foundation supports The Rucksack Project in Jaipur, India. The project is a collaboration with Taabar Shelter, an NGO that helps children who either lived on the streets or were forced into child labour. The shelter aims to rehabilitate the children, re-build their confidence, teach them basic English, Maths and Hindi and find their families. When they are brought to the shelter they have nothing and the charity cannot provide them with even the simplest of things like a toothbrush or soap because there simply isn’t the funding.

The True Luxury Travel Foundation financially supports The Rucksack Project with the help of donations from our clients, as well as fund raising initiatives within our team. With each donation a rucksack will be provided to a child in the shelter. Something that he can call his own and something that when the time comes he can take home.

The Kapani School Project (South Luangwa, Zambia)

Yosef Girls Club Foundation

In rural Zambia, girls do not always have the same encouragement as their male peers to excel in school. As a result, from a young age girls assume quiet dispositions and often do not speak up when they have questions or when they know the answers. In 2015, the Kapani School Project noticed that of its sponsored students, the girls between grades 7 and 9 were struggling the most academically. This was the motivation to start a Girls Club at Yosefe Primary School, through which a safe space could be created for girls, to allow them to express themselves in ways they do not feel comfortable doing in a normal classroom environment. Through the club, the Kapani School Project has introduced girls to a variety of different career options for women, exposed them to strong and successful local female entrepreneurs, held sessions on relationships, menstruation and sexuality, and at the girls’ request implemented English study lessons to help them improve their reading and writing skills.

There is a £15pp contribution to the True Luxury Travel Foundation included within the quote. As you are travelling to Africa your contribution will be donated, in full, towards the Girls Club at Yosefe Primary School, a project sponsored by us since it's formation. This contribution makes an enormous difference but is of course optional.
