Our Impact

ALLOWING TRAVELERS TO JAMAICA VACATION WITH PURPOSE AND GIVE BACK

Responsible & Ectical tourism

Uncharted Adventures is dedicated to fostering responsible and ethical tourism practices that prioritize sustainability, cultural sensitivity, and positive social impact. We achieve this through a multi-faceted approach:

We prioritize sustainability by selecting eco-friendly accommodations and transportation options, and by supporting local businesses to minimize our environmental footprint. Cultural sensitivity is paramount in our operations; we celebrate local customs and traditions while encouraging respectful interactions between travelers and communities.

Community empowerment is central to our mission. We collaborate with local organizations to address community needs, supporting initiatives in education, healthcare, and infrastructure development. Wildlife conservation is another focus area; we advocate for the protection of endangered species and ecosystems, and ensure our wildlife experiences adhere to ethical standards.

Educating travelers on responsible practices is integral to our philosophy. Through pre-trip resources, discussions, and activities, we raise awareness about environmental and cultural conservation. Our goal is to empower travelers to become advocates for responsible tourism in their own communities, promoting sustainable behaviors and positive change worldwide. Join us on a journey where exploration and impact go hand in hand.

School Renovations

Negril Early Childhood Institute Expansion Project

This was Uncharted Adventure’s inaugural outreach project and took place in place in a small community aptly named, Good Hope. With the help of kindhearted travelers, the company contributed money to paint the school, plant beautiful flowers and also assisted in construction of a classroom. The renovations made the school environment more inviting and more conducive for students to learn.

Ocho Rios All Age School Beautification Project

We were lucky to have a chance to partner with Crown Creative Educational Institution. They were instrumental in outfitting Exchange All Age School with 3 murals. Not only did the murals add great curb appeal to the buildings, the messages were part of the Jamaica’s Ministry of Education initiative and were rooted in respect and appropriate school behavior. Crown Creative also gave many notebooks, pens, pencils , and other supplies in addition to helping in the classrooms.

Sponsor a Child Program

The iCan Foundation Sponsor a Child program is an initiative that offers donations to students by way of uniforms, backpacks, school supplies, lunch and school fees. Many people in communities across Jamaica are burdened financially. When it comes to school here in Jamaica, families have to gather enough funds for uniforms, books, shoes, supplies. Because they are imported, these items come at a heavy cost and that’s not all. School fees, taxi fares, and lunch money make school a nearly impossible expense.

Our Aim

The aim of the Sponsor a Child program is to help children secure the necessary funds and materials needed for school. There are many implications to a child missing school: they aren’t able to build the prerequisite skills for later learning and fall behind, they miss out on building important social skills and jeopardize nutrition; schools ensure that children are eating and eating wholesome nutritional meals. Schools are critical part of child’s life and in communities across Jamaica, education is a direct connection for evading poverty. Please consider bestowing a child with the gift of education.
