GoPhilanthropic Travel is a socially conscious travel company encouraging a deeper understanding and connection to the world through travel.
GoPhil Journeys involve learning about and engaging with a collection of effective small grassroots non-profits, committed to long-term work within their communities. Journeys are powerful experiences, often life-changing, and give us each the opportunity to become active members of our global community.
Engage one-on-one with NGOs, social entrepreneurs and community leaders — the oftentimes lesser-known change-makers of the world who are actively making the world a more just place. Discover the complexities of development work, understand the challenges and experience first-hand the courageous people and organizations paving the way for a better future.
Join GoPhil co-founder Lydia Dean on an inspirational path around the world – into shelters for children across India, through the jungles and backroads of Costa Rica, Southeast Asia and Venezuela, and to China where the Deans adopt their third child. Motivated by the simple ideal that small personal actions can make a big difference, the family returns to the US where Lydia and a passionate team build a non-profit organization – GoPhilanthropic.
TRAVEL GIVES US A UNIQUE CHANCE TO SEE THE WORLD FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES.
IT OPENS THE DOOR FOR CHANGE.
My journey has given me much to ponder and yes, much for which to be grateful.
We met incredible people dedicating their lives to help others who often do not have a voice.
GoPhil proves time and time again how one person really can make a difference.
Nepal was so inspiring and the journey provided time to collaborate with like-minded people.
