Since 1985, we have taken over 7,000 people with special needs on tours all over the world.
These profoundly enriching educational travel opportunities expand experiential learning and dramatically enhance the self-esteem of every traveler.
Our programs open whole new worlds of understanding for both the participants and the general population.
Through these programs, people with disabilities are increasingly understood, appreciated and accepted as important and contributing members of our world.
