We created a way to connect travelers to projects

We connect our customers to projects run by established charities so that they can help fund projects in destinations that they care about.

All administration and technology costs are paid by World Nomads to ensure that 100% of your micro-donations go directly to these projects.

Our travel community has raised over $2.9 million for 184 community development projects around the world.
