Partners, suppliers, teachers and students, everyone deserves a little more! Never one to skimp on sharing the love, we’re passionate about going above for the whole wide world, gosh darn it!

Volunteering

As a company, we support over 50 volunteering projects in more than 30 countries. We’ve carefully selected partners that benefit the wider community, as well the knowledge of students. We cover projects including teaching English, working in communities, animal conservation, beach clean ups and of course who could forget the turtles?

Our work with local communities

We want to ensure that our work has a positive impact on the world, the people in it, and the students that travel it! That’s why this year, we’ve taken a particular interest in bettering the facilities of our partners, aiding the develop of new policies and educating communities around the world. 

Our supplier, Annie’s Lodge, was a perfect fit for educational groups looking to explore Malawi, but due to varying standards in global health and safety, they simply didn’t have the infrastructure to support educational groups safely.

We used our global network of suppliers and international connections to sponsor the installation of fire alarms in the property. We wanted to ensure that not only our educational group, but those for years to come, can explore the surrounding community whilst remaining safe.

David, The Scotland Malawi Partnership

“We are proud to work in partnership with STA Travel as we support the 160 year old friendship between Scotland and Malawi which dates back to Dr David Livingstone. 

 “More and more schools and community groups have had the chance to visit Malawi by booking through STA Travel Education. Each new group supported to visit Malawi helps support the Malawian economy and further strengthens the bilateral relationship by inspiring each generation to get involved.

 “We are hugely grateful for the profit-share arrangement we have with STA Travel Education, which sees 15% of STA’s Scotland-Malawi profits donated back to the Scotland Malawi Partnership. This extra revenue makes a huge difference to our small charity as we in turn support 1,200 different civic links between our two nations, across schools, churches, hospitals, charities and community groups.”

As part of the #EducationForAll movement, we collaborated with Children’s Hospital School Leicester, Willow Bank. We created a bespoke itinerary suitable for the needs of the students. Sponsoring this academic trip makes out of the classroom learning a more realistic opportunity for their students.
