Greenheart Travel Grants
"Be the change you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi
Want to make a positive, long-lasting impact on your community? Is there a great project or idea in your new community that could use funding for further growth? Apply for a Greenheart Grant!
Greenheart Travel Grants are funds awarded to Greenheart Travel Teach Abroad and Volunteer Abroad participants to use for community development projects in their host or home country. A Greenheart Grant is the opportunity to create, improve, or maintain a great community focused project abroad or at home. Grant funds could be applied to supporting women’s cooperatives, schools, community centers, or health clinics for example. Grant winners will be featured on our website, social media, and blog.
Criteria for Global Greenheart Grants
Collaboration: The community should be the catalyst for the project. Community members must participate in all stages of the project from the planning, implementation, and maintenance.
Sustainable: The project should have a clear plan to sustain itself after you leave. The more the community collaborates the easier it will be to sustain the project.
Positive Community Impact: The project must clearly benefit the community as a whole and not one individual.
