Invest in your child's future

Boost their Career

Grow their Character

Develop their Skills


Would you like your daughter or son to become a better person – to realise their full potential? Is it possible to have a meaningful impact on society, be sustainable and travel all at the same time?  Here’s how. Our learning and service opportunities enable each participant to develop their character as well as their skills. They provide an opportunity to sharpen their academic and leadership skills. Through the people they meet and the activities they undertake – it can also help them in their careers – if they take the opportunities given to them. It’s more of a boot camp than a jolly  - so not for the faint hearted. But certainly for keen individuals who are looking to develop their capacity to make an impactful difference for the better.

"My daughter was one of the lucky ones of being able to go on the Geneva UN trip. She spent hours writing her speech,..Her heart and soul went into it…It seemed to me that my daughter changed in front of me and her confidence increased dramatically.

We are thankful to Impact Travels for the opportunity given to my daughter and the chance of being part of something very special, that she can carry in her heart for a lifetime. 

I would like to thank Impact Travels and NAWO for the opportunities they create for young women, to give them a voice in a world, where their voices might never have been heard otherwise."

"Our daughters both attended The Commission on the Status of Women in New York and one also  the Human Rights Council in Geneva. Both the girls, and we as their parents, have no doubt that their participation has been a life changing experience…We are thankful to Impact Travels  who provided our girls with invaluable experiences  which have resulted in their heightened  awareness of many social issues and transformed them into confident protagonists in gender equality projects."

Hero McCann

"This opportunity would never have been possible if it wasn’t for all of the hard work and support that Zarin Hainsworth of Impact Travels gave us while we were there, so thank you for making all of this possible…This amazing opportunity gave me the chance to learn so much, meet people from all over the world who have experienced so much, and are able to tell their stories. I am determined to use this to create something that might make a change the way women are treated in this world. Thank you again and I have loved every part of it."
