Here at Silver Travel Advisor, we believe that travel should be a force for good. As travellers, we soak up new countries, new cultures, and new experiences across the world, which all enrich our lives. So, in return, we think it’s important to give back and enrich the lives of those less fortunate.
We’ve teamed up with Just a Drop as our chosen charity partner to raise money for the incredible projects they undertake across the world.
In September 2023 our manging director Lisa McAuley and marketing director Kerry Gallagher will be heading to Albania to take on a five-day trek of the Accursed Albanian Alps.
The spectacular Accursed Mountains are virtually impenetrable apart from a series of high passes that link remote communities to the outside world. Following some ancient paths, the pair will hike in the southwest of Montenegro before heading over the spectacular Valbona Pass and down into the Valbona valley. Their final challenge will be to conquer Zla Kolata, Montenegro’s highest mountain (2,534m).
Any donations from our Silver Travellers are greatly appreciated. All money raised will go directly to Just a Drop and support their work in bringing safe water to people around the world!
Just a Drop brings sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities, transforming lives.
771 million people globally don’t have access to safe water. Drinking dirty water makes people ill. That’s just part of the picture… A lack of safe water and sanitation holds back development and makes it harder for communities to escape the poverty trap. Just £5 can transform a life with safe water today.
Just a Drop’s sustainable projects provide support to communities, such as through the construction of hand-dug and drilled wells, pipelines, sand dams, rainwater harvesting systems and latrines, and hygiene and sanitation programmes.
They have reached over 1.9 million people in 32 countries since the charity began in 1998.
Project work is currently focused in Cambodia, India, Kenya, Nicaragua, Uganda and Zambia.
