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.  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.

The Problems

CSR facilitators generally rely on theoretical assessments of community projects and remote management of initiatives. This is problematic for the following reasons:

  • Without hands-on assessment, a project’s true needs may not be identified and critical factors may go unnoticed.
  • The selection criteria – which are intended to safeguard all parties – may inadvertently exclude worthy projects.
  • The lack of direct follow-up leaves much room for misunderstanding and mismanagement.
  • Community projects are seldom helped practically and often lack the skill to track progress or overcome unforeseen obstacles.
  • Projects in remote areas are often excluded due to their isolation and lack of access to technology.

The Solutions

The EXPEDITION Project aims to bridge the gaps in CSR 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.
