Learning AFAR Fund
A partnership between AFAR Media and the Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation
AFAR Media, in partnership with the Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation, sponsors immersive travel programs around the world for underserved students.
Through our shared commitment to the idea that travel is the best form of education, AFAR and the GLA International Foundation are able to provide travel opportunities to students who would otherwise not have the means through donations to our Learning AFAR Fund.
The GLA International Foundation provides grant-based scholarships that allow students who would otherwise not be able to afford to have these experiences to participate in service-learning travel programs.
Through GLAIF’s partnership with AFAR Media, we are able to facilitate the operations of new experiential learning programs through Global Leadership Adventures for students who receive these grants and cover all expenses to ensure as many teens as possible can attend.
When teens with grants through this partnership are able to travel and volunteer with GLA, it makes a meaningful difference in the lives of our students as well as their host communities.
Programs focus on sustainable projects alongside community members through development and support of local leaders and community-led initiatives. Everyone from the local leaders to the group’s bus driver to the wildlife in nearby at-risk habitats feel the impacts of our student’s presence in the community.
