Travel that transforms teens into global citizens.

Global Village Connect Travel connects people, schools and communities by developing practical solutions that improve education, economic opportunity and health through sustainable projects. Make a lasting impact with our partner communities in Africa, Asia, Central and South America.

Connecting people. Building relationships. Transforming lives.

“Since 2009, my students have been learning about their “pen pals” lives in Buppala, a rural village in Uganda. Because they have interacted with the students before traveling, meeting them was incredibly meaningful. As a result, my students have become concerned citizens, activists, social entrepreneurs, fund-raisers, gardeners, and researchers. This is the most gratifying work I’ve ever done as a teacher.”

Project Spotlight

Empowering communities through education, economic opportunity, and self-reliance.


Learning takes on real meaning through participation in sustainable development initiatives such as goat giving, organic farming, sports development, teaching English and health initiatives. Students not only learn about life in a developing country, but they also come to understand the change they can affect through service. Initiatives spring from opportunities discovered through communication between partner communities. Our experienced in-country staff assure implementation and document the impact your students are making.
