Social Venture: Wanderlust Indonesia
Wanderlust Indonesia is an ecotourism company that offers tours where travel activities are combined with volunteering services to locals based on their needs. So far, it has hosted tours in Krakatau Mountain, Labuan Bajo, Tanjung Puting, and urban Jakarta where about 100 ‘Wanderers’ got to meet the locals, understand the local values and customs while traveling, and leave behind a positive footprint through volunteering or sponsoring a child’s education.
In Krakatau Mountain, besides snorkeling and hiking, Wanderers get to complete a project like teaching a chapter from Wanderlust’s curriculum for students or teaching English to guides.
In the next two years, Dini plans to expand to 5 other islands/conservations and to villages and slum area with literacy, fair trade, sanitation, and waste management programs.
