Share The Wonder’s story began in the middle of 2020 at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, when EXO Foundation and Tourism In Need driven by the desire to support local communities in Southeast Asia during the crisis, joined forces to initiate a common project.The concept of organising fun and educational day trips for underprivileged children in the region seemed a great way to make tourism continue to count for local communities. Inspired by their knowledge of product development in tourism, civil society organizations helping the most vulnerable in the region and their willingness to make travel meaningful, they organised the first “Share The Wonder” trip in Cambodia in December 2020.
Share The Wonder, under the leadership of co-founder Ameer Virani, is managing the organization of the trips on the ground, communication and fundraising activities. EXO Foundation enables the project to come to life by offering a legal framework, partnerships and financial support.
Give the gift of travel!
Our ‘Share The Wonder‘ initiative is built on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to experience the eye-opening and inspiring wonders of travel. With your support, we use tourism as a force for youth development.
Travel creates opportunities to try new things, learn about the world, meet inspiring people, be active and disconnect from daily life. Our mission is to share these amazing benefits with underprivileged young people and help transform their lives.
We work together with local NGO’s, social enterprises and responsible travel organisations in Southeast Asia to create fun and educational day trips. Our experiences not only benefit children, but also have a positive impact on the communities and natural environment that our partners support.
Day Trips that change lives
With your support, we use travel as a force for good to contribute to the inspirational work being done by local NGO’s to give underprivileged children opportunities in life. Our mission is to give these children a memorable day out and time away from their daily routine. We love travel and believe in its ability to shape young people’s lives in a meaningful way.
We put a lot of time and effort into the trips we organise, working closely with our partners to ensure maximum benefit for the children who take part. We aim to pass on to them a sense of community belonging and care for the environment that will help shape positive futures for them.
