Support Local Communities Initiative

Story by The Natural Adventure Company

Posted: September 23, 2020

We have always designed our holidays in a responsible way that gives back to local people and provides you with a more rewarding experience. We have worked through many periods of uncertainty and we believe that responsible adventure travel is a great form of wealth redistribution and it is making a huge difference in the lives of many people and the small communities in the countries where we operate. The welfare of our customers is the first priority of everyone at The Natural Adventure Company. And we also have a commitment to our wonderful team and to our lovely local partners and suppliers, most of which are small family-run businesses who have been disproportionately impacted by the recent events.

In this respect, we will be thankful if you make a small donation to support these communities. We have launched this initiative in a partnership with Rekichka Foundation (from Bulgarian, “small river”). Rekichka was established in 2002 by The Natural Adventure Company’s founder, Alex Pazderski. It is a non-profit organisation, focused on the areas of social enterprise and education, promotion of environmentally friendly travel, biodiversity protection, as well as mitigating local conflicts and tensions through economic growth and cross-country cooperation in the field of responsible tourism. Rekichka operates primarily in the Balkan countries and has completed a number of initiatives that have positively impacted many local communities. Rekichka has no religious or political affiliations and no corporate donors apart from The Natural Adventure Company.

100% of your donation goes directly to local communities in need in the regions where we operate. This way you will give back to the places you visit on your travels by creating opportunities for local people to make ends meet during these challenging times.

Thank you for your support and for making a difference!
