With two billion of the world’s population living on less than $2 a day, alleviating crushing poverty and the health, social and environmental ills that accompany it, is everyone's moral responsibility. Yet the extent of world poverty can seem so overwhelming that many of us are left feeling helpless; that the problems are just too big for any one person to make a difference. A commitment to overcome this feeling of powerlessness is exactly what motivated the team at World Nomads to found The Footprints Network.
To date 1,049,771 travelers have donated raising $2,761,185 to change lives by funding 174 community development projects worldwide.
World Nomads is very proud to announce that this initiative was recognised at the WYSETC Global Youth Travel Awards 2017 at their conference in Montreal.
The award was presented to general manager, The Americas, Christina Tunnah by WYSE Travel Confederation Director General David Chapman.
