DISCOVER OUR COMMUNITIES ONLINE

With travel off the agenda for a while, MAD’s innovative approach to e-learning programmes give you the chance to learn from, collaborate with and support our partners.

Our Mission

To create experiences that change lives

Our mission is to inspire and prepare students to face up to some of the most serious challenges of our present and future.We believe that empathy – not just academic knowledge – is the “magic” , often under-emphasised, ingredient in equipping students with the ideas, experience and conviction they’ll need to become responsible global citizens, and moreover, agents of positive change.

In so doing, we hope to plant seeds of hope and expectation that, together, we can build a kinder, fairer world.

OUR TOURS

Planet + People + Profit

All of our experiences teach students the “three Ps” of Sustainable Development: People, Planet, and Profit. Activities are adjusted to the age and learning abilities of the students.

Environmental Sustainability

MAD Travel programs begin by encouraging students to gain a greater appreciation for our environment and the need to protect it.

Community Partnerships

By spending time with our community partners, students gain a snapshot of life from their perspective. In doing so, we create the possibility for longer-term collaborations based on mutual respect and understanding.

Social Enterprise Development

We aim to plant the seed of social enterprise in the hearts and minds of students, so that they begin to see the potential for business to bring progress and sustainable prosperity not only to the lucky few, but to all.

Why the Philippines?

We believe that the best way to learn about sustainability is to complement in-class theoretical knowledge with on-the-ground learning activities which enable students to understand the challenges from a holistic perspective: people, profit, planet.

MAD Travel’s educational programs are unique in the Philippines because they offer students the ff:

  • Authentic interactions with a range of our partner communities and destinations
  • A network of social entrepreneurs offering workshops and collaboration opportunities
  • The opportunity to contribute to ambitious sustainability, literarcy, and community-oriented objectives and achieve long-term impact
  • An engaging curriculum taught by a dynamic team of communicators

THE MAD ONES

Young People We’ve Inspired

Ena Escañan, Future Forest

Ena started Future Forest as a passion project with her team at Works of Heart. After coming back to Zambales several times, she decided to come up with an art-led fundraising project by inviting other young artists to design products that will be sold to support the labor maintenance of the nursery in Yangil.

Issa Barte, Fund the Forest

Issa joined our tour for the first time on her birthday. A few months later, she reaches out to us to say she wants to raise Php 1,000,000 pesos for the forest in San Felipe. She and her friends created events and an online platform where people can easily help fund the forest. As of Jan 2020, they have reached a quarter of their goal.
