Women Empowerment Activities: 4 Regenerative Travel to Bali, Rwanda, Peru and the Seattle Area
Updated: Dec 5, 2022
International Women’s day is finally here, a day we honor the contributions women have made to the world! At Global Family Travels we value a community-based approach to tourism, globally and locally. And, with the world of travel reopening, we have been hard at work thinking about ways we can empower women and girls to align some of our new trip themes with the globally recognized United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).
Gender Equality (UNSDG #5), Why it Matters
While we have always supported gender equality (UNSDG#5) on our trips, we are excited to share four impactful trips championing Gender Equality for a Sustainable Tomorrow. Even with advancements in gender equality, today we still see barriers that disadvantage women’s rights, from sexual violence, global income disparities and lack of global representation. Research indicates if countries prioritized advancements for women and gender equality on a global scale, we will see a significant stride in prosperity.
Global Goal # 5 is not only a fundamental human right, but is a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Women play an important role in shaping societal change and economic resilience, and it's important they become influential players and vital stakeholders to address the global issues facing our world. We strongly believe in this mission to amplify and continuously inspire gender equality, and women will play a vital role in helping their communities recover from our global pandemic.
Four Transformational Trips to Empower Women
As travelers, we can make powerful choices that support women and girls worldwide. Choices that give them equal access to education, health care, and decent work, ultimately helping to build sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.
As borders begin opening again, and we begin planning our next adventures, Global Family Travels envisions a bigger, bolder, and more dynamic world of travel that specializes in gender equality, empowerment and community-driven experiences. We are set on ensuring that experiences and tours are centered around these foundational ideals, and are pleased to share four Regenerative Wellness Retreats and Heartfelt Adventures for Women in the upcoming 2022-2023 season.
