Inspired by the continued interest and strong support of En Vía’s responsible tourism model, we are now offering a new way to engage with the women in our program and support our work. “The Project Tour” will be chance to explore the rich culture, history, gastronomy and charm of Oaxaca while engaging with local communities and building long standing connections and benefits.
This program was inspired by the current half day tours that En Vía leads weekly in Oaxaca. These tours introduce travelers to the concepts, benefits and challenges that are involved in microfinance programs for development; as well as give participants the chance to personally meet the women entrepreneurs who are growing their businesses using En Vía’s interest-free microloans.
The Project Tour embodies the principles of voluntourism, combining tourists’ leisure time with a way of responsibly giving back to the host communities.
During The Project Tour, participants will partake in a variety of activities alongside our community partners including stove-building, cooking classes, our microfinance tour and much more.
The tour is 5 days long and includes 5 nights of accommodation. In 2016 we will be running the Project Tour on the following date.
Wednesday, Saturday, July 2nd to Wednesday, July 6th
Funds from the Project Tour will be used to build a stove and provide interest-free microloans to women entrepreneurs.br>
