Corporate Social Responsibility
Over the past 25 years’, since we started our journey at Merit Travel, we have had the opportunity to travel the world and explore the common values that connect us all. We have learned that our actions, no matter how small, profoundly impact the people in every country we travel to. Because we believe in taking responsibility for our actions, we have created a unique Corporate Responsibility platform that engages everyone at Merit Travel in this duty.

Our sustainability plan is driven by 3 main principals:
Communities around the world lack proper education and infrastructure. Our Volunteer Programs enable people to contribute to communities in need.
To minimize our ecological footprint we source businesses that share our values of nature conservancy, wildlife protection, waste management, and sustainable energy sourcing.
We help communities grow by supporting entrepreneurs and by investing in grass-roots projects.
Merit encourages social outreach through our Share a Day and Share a Week programs. These fully paid days enable our team members to volunteer with any Charity or NGO. Because our team is important to us, the causes that they are passionate about are important to us as well.
Across the globe, there is a lack of safe water and sanitation, causing the loss of life every day. Our ambition is to help end this global crisis. Merit Travel has partnered with WaterAid to help transform the lives of thousands over the coming years.
WaterAid is an international non-governmental organisation with a mission to transform lives by improving access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. Collaborating with WaterAid, we help by increasing awareness, fundraising, and development for local WaterAid projects. During campaign periods a part of our sales is donated to WaterAid, and we hold a number of events to increase awareness.
Our current fundraising efforts will be used to assist 12 health clinics across rural Tanzania. These clinics do not have access to a water supply. Our contributions will help build a safe water supply for each clinic.
WaterAid Works in 37 Countries Worldwide
