Adventure Life: Travel Philanthropists Improve Education in Rural Guatemala

TYPING IN ALL CAPS CAN ONLY MEAN ONE OF TWO THINGS: 1) OUR EYES ARE CURRENTLY BURSTING OUT OF OUR SKULLS BECAUSE WE ARE SO UPSET, OR 2) WE ARE BESIDE OURSELVES WITH EXCITEMENT.

Turns out it is number two. Now listen to why we are on the verge of losing it… We have just received some pretty wonderful news. Adventure Life, a totally rad group of travel gurus, has given CoEd a grant to help support the Culture of Reading Program (CORP) in Guatemala. So yeah, we’re going to reserve the right to TYPE IN ALL CAPS.

Why is this so exciting? It’s a success story of like-minded organizations coming together to make a positive impact in the world. Adventure Life is all about responsible travel, and they recognize that same trait in CoEd. Adventure Life isn’t just giving us a grant; they are giving us their seal of approval. Coming from such a passionate and knowledgeable travel company (with a penchant for altruism), that is a pretty big deal.

Adventure Life’s founder and CEO, Brian Morgan, states, “As travelers ourselves, we know that traveling responsibly is important, and we work hard to give back to the places and people that have inspired our company from the very start. We were excited to give to CORP because as a company, we are also dedicated to supporting local grass-roots projects. It is a program that directly impacts the children in local communities and works towards a sustainable long term solution. What better way to build their communities’ future than to begin with educating their children?”

Brian, we couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.

April is Donor Appreciation Month here at CoEd, so this is the perfect time to let Adventure Life know that we truly, deeply appreciate their generosity and are beyond excited to be partnering with them to bring the CORP program to even more schools in Guatemala.
