Become an In Focus Partner

Are you an NGO, non-profit or social enterprise looking for a new revenue stream? Our In Focus Program might be the answer!

Intrepid Urban Adventures’ In Focus experiences are day tours run in partnership with local NGOs, non-profits, and social enterprises tackling real local issues – and allow travellers to hear real stories from real people, who are working to make the world a better place, one project at a time.

In Focus experiences vary in each destination, but in every instance, they bring travellers face-to-face with a local issue and a program designed to address that issue. Some examples include a Syrian refugee centre in Istanbul, entrepreneurship training for disadvantaged women in Kathmandu, employment support for formerly homeless people in Bucharest, and indigenous cultural preservation in Chile.

In addition to having In Focus tours fully delivered by an external organisation, we also include non-profits and social enterprises in our regular tours, for example food and shopping tours. If you’re a restaurant, café, or shop with a social mission, you’re also invited to join the program.

Why join?

At the moment there are a few major online platforms that list social impact tours to help connect your organisation with travellers. But at Intrepid Urban Adventures, we go a step further. Our In Focus program offers not only marketing but full support to NGOs and non-profits that are willing to use tourism as a tool for growing their organisation and increasing their financial sustainability.

Organisations we work with enjoy the following benefits:

  • Additional revenue stream
  • Increased exposure
  • New channels to amplify your organisation’s message
  • Organised donor visits
  • Introduction to new donors and supporters
  • Access to a global network of like-minded people
  • Ongoing support to help you with tour design, pricing, customer service, bookings, sales and promotion of the experiences

Who we are looking for

We are looking for inspiring stories to tell in-situ by the changemakers themselves.

To apply for the In Focus program, your organisation must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a verified NGO, non-profit or social enterprise in accordance with Social Enterprise UK Guidelines
  • Have been successfully operating for a minimum of one year
  • Have transparent financial reporting
  • Be ready to accept small groups on a daily basis
  • No previous experience with tourism is necessary, although this might be helpful
  • We do not offer any experiences that involve children, as part of our global policy

Once you have been accepted into the program, you will be welcomed to the family immediately and we can have you welcoming guests to your organisation within a couple of weeks.
