WorlDynamics, an organization devoted to make the world a better place while operating according to the highest ethical standards, started Philanthropic Journeys in 2015 to connect individuals (and companies) - with an honest desire to make a real difference in the world through a hands-on approach - and local communities in desperate need for external interventions. The initiative is a radically new concept that brings together the aspirations of sophisticated travelers to delve deeper into the profound emotions felt while visiting remote areas (e.g. respond to a sense of general dissatisfaction with the world, being a promoter of positive change, wanting to help the less fortunate, longing to reconnect with nature, living an experience to remember, finding the inner self, etc.) and the needs of the people who most struggle in today's society, including their demands for environmental protection/restoration.
Looking into the eyes of a child reminds us of the tenderness for life that we can all feel. Similar emotions come natural when we take the time to meet people who suffer. It is as if all of a sudden we were reminded that we all come from just one family
Philanthropic Journeys is in a rare and enviable position to provide ongoing personalized assistance in building experiences that are always unique as the JOURNEYS are built by the donors themselves with the assistance of a qualified advisor. The support provided comes directly from Dr. Tonelli, founder of the initiative as well as a scholar, consultant, and entrepreneur whose extensive work has taken him to more than 100 countries across all continents and offered him continuous learning opportunities in the most diverse of settings for the past 15 years. In other words, you will have at your side:
- A researcher who works on the ground with theoretical and practical knowledge of environmental and social problems as they occur in the 'real' world. This means a proven ability to engage with a variety of potential project stakeholders.
- A management consultant and entrepreneur with the connections, business skills and know-how required to make a project feasible and sustainable.
- An experienced traveler used to adapt well in every situation, ensuring: reduced risk, saving money, and rare experiences.
