Kaya’s mission is to promote sustainable social, environmental and economic development, empower communities and cultivate educated, compassionate global citizens through responsible travel.
At Kaya, we take our claims of responsible travel very seriously. There are many issues to consider within the scope of traveling, volunteering and studying in the developing world. Many of these issues relate to your own actions, our responsibilities at Kaya and ethical concerns. These impact the communities in which you live and work, the projects we support, and the environment. It is not only the means by which you chose to travel and the activities that you participate in, but also your actions (and reactions) which can have a great effect.
At Kaya we have identified many areas that are important to us through our experience in the fields of international development, education and travel. These are issues that are also important to our projects, the communities in which we work, and many have been raised in the international arena. While we cannot overcome every problem, we believe that awareness and discussion of the issues can help us strive to become more responsible travellers.
