Charity Partnership
Silver Travel Advisor & Just a Drop

TRIED. TRAVELLED. TRUSTED.

Giving back

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.

Silver Travel trek the Accursed Albanian Alps

In September 2023 our manging director Kerry Gallagher headed 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, Kerry hiked into the southwest of Montenegro before heading over the spectacular Valbona Pass and down into the Valbona valley.

Kerry commented: “Taking on this challenge was an absolutely incredible experience, I genuinely had no idea how beautiful it was going to be, the landscapes and views were breathtaking. We climbed mountains, scrambled ridges, ascended passes, and hiked through valleys, meadows, forests and remote villages.

The effort was made all the more rewarding knowing that all donations were going directly to Just a Drop to support the amazing work they do to bring safe water and sanitation to communities across the world.”

A huge thanks to all our Silver Travellers who donated and supported the cause, we’re incredibly grateful and know the team at Just a Drop are too!

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.
