Teams will travel to a developing nation and work alongside a local non-profit organization for the betterment of the community. TGL Leaders are professional photographers with travel experience, and are equipped to guide you through the country, into the culture, and far beyond your expectations. From workshops at locations many will only dream of, to helping in a tangible, needed way with the NGO, each trip is a unique adventure that will be a journey for every participant. Where we go, what we do, and who we will work with will vary from country to country.
Siem Reap, Cambodia
This team will work with Anjali House in Siem Reap, alongside their amazing photography program that works to get and keep children off the streets. They provide education, health care, and more. We’ll have a blast working alongside these kids, and then take several days to explore the majestic and mysterious Angkor Wat!
This team will work with Art in Tanzania and their partner, UNICEF, to visit and document a school for Maasai children, as well as document the vanishing Maasai culture. On this trip you’ll get to experience real Tanzania, be welcomed into an otherwise very private culture, teach photography to AiT staff and children, document Maasai elders and traditions, and did we mention a 3 day Responsible Safari? This trip of a lifetime is lead by Colby Brown, the founder of TGL.
Peru Join TGL on an adventure through Peru on this returning trip! This team will head to Cusco, Peru, to work with Globalteer and the Picaflour House, which is providing impoverished and underprivileged youth a safe place to get off the streets and back in to school. On this trip, you’ll work with children and youth at the Picaflour house – where they are starting up a photography program! – learn about issues facing youth in Peru, explore and document Cusco, and of course, visit epic Macchu Picchu. This team will be lead by Kate Siobhan Havercroft and Michael Bonocore!
