These trips expose our passengers to essential social justice issues and lay the groundwork for future philanthropic activities.
TVC has donated over $2 million to our partners in Kenya, India, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Haiti, Nepal, and Thailand throughout the years. TVC has opened medical clinics, schools, community centers, cyber cafes, artisan workshops, and small businesses with our partners in order to create jobs, empower local communities, and improve the standard of living in all of the places where we work. We focus on uplifting women and their families and strive to give a voice to those marginalized by society.
