HGT Travel Foundation

As an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization HGT Travel Foundation provides financial, educational and emotional support to the communities we know and love through our experience and knowledge gained from running our tour operator business. Over the past ten years HGT has been organizing and running tours, treks and climbs to countries in Southeast Asia, Indochina, and Africa. HGT Travel Foundation gives back to the local communities and their families many of whom work in the travel industry as guides, porters, cooks, drivers and office staff. Our goal is simple — we serve those in need in the countries we operate programs. There are no salaried positions within HGT Travel Foundation. We are all volunteers. In many of these countries basic healthcare and education are not always available. In addition to the more “planned” support projects, special projects always arise due to economic hardship, family changes, catastrophic events, etc. Some projects are on a larger community based scale while others are for a specific family or individual. HGT Travel Foundation also partners with its extensive network of business and not for profit contacts to provide both financial and administrative support. HGT Travel Foundation also has individual country based project managers to ensure we are addressing the needs of the local communities.

Volunteer Activities
Our volunteers can participate in a wide range of activities. They volunteer at local schools and centres that serve the comunitiy youth. Focus is in Tanzania and Nepal is on needs of special education children and their families. Volunteers assist in classroom settings while helping with physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Heavy emphasis on supporting children with autisim, especially in our partner centre in Moshi, Tanzania. Some general support activites include basic childcare and babysitting, general labor at one of our centres, or administrative tasks. We also host charity climbs and treks to places like Everest Base Camp in Nepal and Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. These charity events support our mission by raising funds and awareness for our programs.
