IMPACT TRAVELING Experience Israel like never before when visiting KitePride, a Tel Aviv based social business that provides jobs to women and men exiting human trafficking by creating BAGS from up-cycled fabrics collected from ocean lovers around the world who donate their old gear instead of trashing it.
BECOME AN AMPLIFIER OF CHANGE We call this `impact traveling `. Think pay it forward. Through each bag that is made, you are saving our ocean from waste and safeguarding our planet. As well as this, by wearing and making a KitePride bag, you are becoming an ambassador for change.
The bag you make won't be for yourself, it will be gifted to another Taglit participant. This is how you pay it forward - giving and receiving.
