Sandals Foundation, Flight Centre Canada Team for “Voluntourism” Events

From September 13-18, The Sandals Foundation held the Caribbean’s largest community outreach projects in history on the island of Turks & Caicos at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa. Joining forces with over 400 management personnel from Flight Centre Canada, one of the world’s leading travel consulting companies, The Sandals Foundation completed 10 community-driven projects throughout Providenciales.

“This was our chance to show the travel industry – and ourselves – how working together [with The Sandals Foundation] can produce amazing results,” said Greg Dixon, president of Flight Centre Canada in a written statement. “We are leaving a legacy and starting a trend that we hope lasts for years to come.”

Over the course of the week, volunteers worked on a variety of projects as part of a wide-range of educational, environmental and community initiatives intended to transform and uplift the island nation and its people.
