At Tefillah Travel, we know the value of education. We understand that we are privileged enough to be able to travel the world and enjoy its diversity. Let’s face it: not everyone is able to travel. Whether it is money, family obligations, or circumstances, travel is out of reach for a large percentage of the world’s population. Most people never even leave their own province let alone the country. (Only 25% of Zimbabweans have a passport!).
This is especially true for students in underserved communities and rural areas. These students, in communities and from families with limited resources do not get a chance to expand their worldview, meet people from other cultures, and bring what they learn in the classroom to life!
While many private schools send students on overseas educational trips, schools and teachers in underserved areas have little or no opportunity to offer their students this experience. Their schools and communities lack the resources to make such trips happen. This is why, Tefillah Travel wants to help children in forgotten parts of the country because everyone deserves a chance to see and learn about the world!
At Tefillah, our aim is to work with students in underserved communities to promote the benefits of travel, education, and cultural awareness by funding overseas educational programs. Our purpose is to provide teachers and students with the planning and funding they need to take what they learn in the classroom and put it to use in the real world!
We understand that travel is a powerful agent for change. It broadens a child’s horizon and helps them find their purpose. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to travel — especially young students. Not everyone has parents to take them on round-the-world adventures or send them to study abroad. In Zimbabwe, a nation with an unemployment rate of over 80%, the majority of families and schools do not have the resources to travel locally, let alone send students on trips outside the country.
You and I can work together to make a difference! Tefillah Travel works in partnerships with local schools to make it possible for young learners to travel. Together, we can transform a young person’s life by giving them the gift of travel!
