Latin Excursions & Scalesia Foundation
Latin Excursions is committed to supporting specific causes we think make a real difference in the region we work in. One of these is the Scalesia Foundation which focuses on educating Galapagos Islands’ future generations.
The Scalesia Foundation focuses on youth education – their goal is to make today’s youth lifelong learners who actively participate in local and global communities, critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, effective communicators in Spanish and English, passionate about their society and environment, and committed to the sustainable development of the Galapagos Islands and mainland Ecuador. “The children of the world are the hope for its future,” is part of the Foundation’s credo; they believe that education is one of the best tools to ensure sustainability, particularly in such a fragile ecosystem as the Galapagos. Through part of the proceeds of each of our trips, a scholarship donation is provided to this foundation.
Latin Excursions also believes that investing in youth is the best way to implement change, and we are proud to support such a worthy organization. Latin Excursions encourages clients staying in the islands to visit the Scalesia Foundation website, or for those who would like to volunteer or donate, to please let us know to make arrangements. The future of Galapagos depends on all of us.
