TRAVEL THAT EMPOWERS ALL
In 2019, Anina Monteforte, a Latina from New York City, founded The World Within Us Travels, fueled by her desire to inspire a new intentional way of travel, that is sustainable, led by women, celebrates culture, and empowers sustainable development projects around the world.
The World Within Us was created to bridge opportunities between travelers, the tourism industry, and the nonprofit sector. To discover how we can make travel more sustainable, ethical, and international to support local community activities.
We became the first travel company to directly align our travels with the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Over the past year, we have built these organizations across borders to fuel the mission of travel that empowers all.
The World Within Us, is a social enterprise, that partners with local guides, nonprofits, and the travel industry to deliver the results to local communities through sustainable development.
The World Within Us is committed to protecting the environment, conserving culture, and traditions through storytelling. Also providing opportunities to indigenous populations and female entrepreneurs within their own communities. The World Within Us provides skills lending and economic contributions to local projects created by grassroots organizations building meaningful connections between travelers and local communities.
We connect travelers, industry leaders, and grassroots nonprofits to provide opportunities for sustainable partnerships with the tourism sector and non-profits to unite the two industries and build local economies. By providing the intentional opportunities to locally owned businesses and guides we create a unique component of social impact through travel opportunities.
Create travel itineraries that minimize negative environmental impacts, respect local cultures and traditions, generate social inclusion, support preservation of national heritage sites, and provides economic growth to local economies and communities.
Sustainable Development Goals
