Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2018 -- ILI Travel seeks to widen the worldview of students who participate in their service learning programs while never losing focus on the ultimate goal of their trips: helping the communities they serve. This company strives to support the economic, educational, and environmental sustainability of the developing nations their groups visit.

Unlike many other volunteer abroad groups, the ILI team works with local schools and organizations to assist with locally-identified needs. They arrive with no agenda and a strong desire to help with whatever those organizations request.

ILI Travel contributes to a region's economic sustainability by eating in locally-owned restaurants, staying in locally-owned hotels, and paying Fair Trade wages to the local people they work with. Therefore, money that their service learning groups spend will remain in the country they travel to serve.

These groups contribute to educational sustainability because they work to bolster the efforts of existing educators by volunteering in schools and community organizations as tutors, teachers, camp counselors, and more. They will also perform light construction work to create a better learning environment.

Finally, ILI Travel supports environmental sustainability because they will work with local nonprofits both to assist with their agricultural self-sufficiency needs and to protect their local environment.

ILI Travel partners with many organizations, including student groups, religious institutions, and scout troops. Their goal is to provide a powerful experience for volunteers and leave a positive lasting impact on communities in need.
