Just You Cares

Changing lives through travel


We know the places we visit inside out and often get to hear about people and communities in need. Working with non-profit organisation Planeterra, we are supporting a variety of projects around the world through our Just You Cares initiatives. On some holidays we'll take you to see the work that's being done and meet some of the people who benefit. 

Here are some of the projects we are supporting;

  1. Coffee Beans, Costa Rica

    Mi Cafecite Coffee Tour

    When you book our Real Costa Rica tour, you're helping to support the local community with a visit to the 'Mi Cafecito Coffee Tour'. This Fairtrade coffee farm was created after the devastating earthquake of 2009, which massively affected Costa Rica's producers. As well as learning about the coffee-growing process, you'll also get to taste what is considered to be one of the world's best brews.

  2. Native Grill

    When you book our National Parks, Mount Rushmore & Little Bighorn holiday, you're helping us support the DinéHózhó project 'Native Grill' - a food truck run by a local Navajo family, which you will visit. DinéHózhó aims to further integrate Navajo culture by assisting indigenous-owned businesses in their development and connecting them to the tourist industry.

  3. The Sthree Café

    If you join this tour you are helping us support The Sthree Café, which employs women from the local community. It helps increase their income, strengthen their financial independence, and encourages them to become economically empowered. The café provides the women with a fair wage and the skills and training needed to work in the service sector. It serves fresh, vegetarian cuisine and provides a traditional Sri Lankan dining experience.

  4. The Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-op

    The Ccaccaccollo Women’s Weaving Co-op supports a community near the Inca Trail. It funds training programmes to help bring back weaving traditions that have been lost over generations. Today, more than 55 women are involved, producing textiles from llama and alpaca wool. On our Highlights of Peru Tour, you will visit the centre and have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs.

  5. Oodles of Noodles

    When you book a tour to Vietnam, you are helping to support the Oodles of Noodles project. A social enterprise which helps at risk youngsters. This acts as a curriculum module for the youth to practice their English language and presentation skills - two key qualities that are a necessity for success in the hospitality industry. Students lead a noodle-making class with travellers and teach them about the twenty-six different types of noodles available in Hoi An, Vietnam.
