Charity Travel

Charity Travel (CT) is the 2010 long solidarity journey around the world by Yeon and Kamiel, it is where the creators of kindmankind drew their inspiration from.

During CT we have built a community center, started income generation programs, helped peace group activists, forest conservationists, migrant workers, connected a microfinance institution, did arts programs, worked with homeless people, and much more. CT was designed to connect small charitable initiatives to courageous helpers on a global scale. We have to help the struggling initiatives left behind by institutions. Be inspired!
