Somewhere in the world today, a traveller is moved by a young family living in poverty. A connection is made and there’s a resolve to help.
At RoundTrip Foundation we lend a hand in turning that travel experience into real change in local communities.
All donations over AUD$2 are now fully tax deductible.

* Through the generosity of travellers we assist local communities, help children in need, and fund local internships.
What makes RoundTrip different?

Late last year when RoundTrip was in Sri Lanka, working with our partners at the orphanage, we had the opportunity to visit Henehasa Girls Home. Henehasa is a sad place and the visit was deeply disturbing. The home has around 76 occupants between 13 and 17 years of age. The girls are in the home for ‘their own protection’. They are mostly the victims of rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence. Read More
RoundTrip is reaching out to vulnerable members of the community around Ella in central Sri Lanka. Our new Community Assistance Program will allow us to reach disadvantaged individuals and families.
