The Smartrip Foundation
Smartrip is a travel company that uses the power of the tourism industry to help local Chilean communities prosper and protect the environment where they are located.
Over the past few years, Smartrip has generated highly favorable commercial alliances with hundreds of hotels that are committed to sustainability. Our connections have given us the opportunity to donate 20% of the company’s net revenue to The Smartrip Foundation, that works in close collaboration with the local communities who live in the surrounding areas where the hotels are located.
In this way, more than 50 social and environmental projects have been financed and more than 2,000 people have reaped the benefits, with the aim of:
- Value: Value the work of cultural bearers through training and workshops, graphic design and production and monetary contribution for equipment and investment.
- Link: Network development so that our beneficiaries can be inserted in the tourism value chain, through fairs, workshops, itinerant markets, links with hotels, inclusion in Smartrip programs and other operators, webcasting, social networks and Smartrip customers.
- Visibility & Awareness: That travelers, local communities and hotels raise their levels of awareness regarding the importance of caring for the environment and heritage through educational programs, workshops, talks, volunteer actions, competitions and dissemination.
