What is your idea to link your passion to travel with a purpose?

To continue to lead purposeful travel groups to Cabo, Mexico as CLOWNS...giving and sharing love, serving in poor communities, orphanages, hospital...participating in the many projects I've already begun in Cabo: Shoes for Kids, Spanish Books for Kids, Partnering to Build Kitchens in very poor communities (running water and electricity), Creating small businesses: Projects made BY the children, teens and adults in the community providing funds to that neighborhood

How does your idea create a positive impact on local communities?

Connecting Americans with another culture in a fun, safe, way
Connecting with Mexicans in hopes of future small business
Computers and Books for Kids: Enhancing educational opportunites for the future...giving children a chance to succeed and rise out of poverty
Beginning sustainable small businesses. Creating products produced BY the local children, teens, and adults

Where will your project idea take place?

:

It already is underway in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

I won't say my week with Steve in Cabo changed my life but it certainly enriched it and provided lifetime memories. I played games with children and prisoners and danced with ladies my mother's age. I will always remember the looks of joy on every one of their faces. I am saving up right now to be able to go again someday soon.

I live in Cabo San Lucas & have witnessed first hand that Steve Shapiro and "Travel with a Purpose" has accomplished here in Mexico. It is a wonderful experience for the participants, but more importantly, the impact on the Mexican community is outstanding!

Just received word that Spanish books can be purchased for ONLY $1.00-$2.00. My number one passion is now the desire to continue SPANISH LIBRARIES in poor villages that have virtually NO books. Education and a future begin with BOOKS! Lifting people out of poverty begins with BOOKS! Travel With A Purpose brings groups to Cabo Mexico to experience giving and sharing....and NOW delivering BOOKS! Future goals: To continue to install COMPUTERS and INTERNET....imagine what educational opportunities can be accomplished! The first computer lab in a barrio daycare center was begun last year! Kids are learning like never before
