The EXPEDITION Project is an innovative organisation that supports and initiates social, environmental and tourism projects, while also facilitating and overseeing Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives on behalf of corporate organisations and philanthropists.
This mission is executed via annual overland expeditions, which are made sustainable through sponsors, sponsorships, volunteer tourism and independent media productions. Target demographics include corporate organisations, international special interest travellers, community projects and local small businesses.
What we solve
Corporate Social Responsibility facilitators generally rely on theoretical assessments of community projects and remote management of initiatives. This is problematic for the following reasons:
Hands-on assessment – Without hands-on assessment, a project’s true needs may not be identified and critical factors may go unnoticed.
The selection criteria – Our selection and strict, which is intended to safeguard all parties but may inadvertently exclude worthy projects until further research is done.
Follow-ups – The lack of direct follow-up leaves much room for misunderstanding and mismanagement. We therefore meet and follow-up with projects as frequently as possible.
Ongoing support – Community projects are seldom helped practically and often lack the skill to track progress or overcome unforeseen obstacles.
Lesser known projects – Projects in remote areas are often excluded due to their isolation and lack of access to technology.
What sponsorship means
The EXPEDITION Project aims to bridge the gaps in Corporate Social Responsibility facilitation – not remotely or theoretically, but practically and directly. Careful, first-hand evaluation and monitoring mean that both corporate investors and community projects have someone looking out for them. It also means that ideal benefactor/beneficiary matches are made. In the process, a vast supportive network is created and a large body of up-to-date data is gathered from which trends can be extrapolated. Its direct involvement and hands-on approach ensure that it achieves the maximum benefits for all parties.
