The Inspiration Project

The Inspiration Project, Global

Helping children across the globe discover their world

Here at Exodus, we believe that our travel is about those moments you’ll never forget; be that a lioness sighting in the Masai Mara, a shooting star atop Kilimanjaro, or a hearty meal shared with friends, both old and new, gathered around the campfire in the wilderness. Through the Inspiration Project, we seek to offer children from all around the globe the same opportunities to discover the world on their doorsteps.

In 2017, Exodus committed to taking at least 2017 disadvantaged children from around the world on educational, inspirational day trips. By the end of the year we had taken a grand total of 2023 children to iconic sites. Some of these children had never left their villages, much less were they afforded the luxury of exploring the natural wonders and cultural heritage right on their doorstep. But for at least one day, since 2017, over 6000 children across 30 countries have journeyed through some of the greatest wonders of the world, guided by our expert Exodus leaders.

In Kenya, children watched elephants play as the sun set over the Naboisho Conservancy, in India they gazed at the Taj Mahal for the first time, and in Cambodia they marvelled at the sprawling Angkor Wat temple complex. In Bosnia, they left the city of Sarajevo and journeyed to the peaks and gorges of the Sutjeska National Park, while in Jordan a group of children from Amman laid their eyes on majestic Petra for the first time.

We believe that travel can be a transformative thing and a force for positive change in the lives of all involved. Our hope is that these day trips will be the inspiration that encourages children to strive to protect and preserve the world around them as they grow up. And that is why we call it The Inspiration Project.
