Giving a little back

We believe there is a moral obligation to give a little back to the communities in which we travel. The Footprints Network was founded by WorldNomads.com as an online philanthropy project to do just that. How does it work? When you purchase a policy with us, choose a project and add on your tiny donation. Here are the current projects that we are funding.
