Our idea

Travel to Grow stands for the desire to connect people and cultures through travel, to bring strangers closer together and to create tolerance and understanding as a basis for cross-cultural cooperation.

For us, sustainable travel includes getting to know other peoples and countries, appreciation of the host country and both the personal growth of the volunteers and the advancement of the project work. We know all projects first hand and above all we offer you a very transparent and personal consultation. In our Stories you will find detailed reports on our trips. The local volunteers will also give you an insight into the everyday life of a volunteer with lively stories.

Our partner projects have existed for many years and were founded long before Travel to Grow started working with us. Our aim is not to offer you the widest possible range of projects. Instead, we would like to recommend our projects to you with a clear conscience, which we have personally tested for honesty and quality. Read the Travel to Grow guidelines to find out which aspects we attach great importance to in our evaluation and selection. As a small provider, we can offer you a great transparency and exclusive insights into the projects, which should help you in your selection.

Our motto is: The more you learn about the unknown, the less prejudice you will have and the better your understanding and tolerance for the other will be.
