join a madventure!

Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends, our joiner tours are perfect for meeting like-minded people who want to travel with a purpose!

We decide to call it MAD, because being connected to Gawad Kalinga really is about Making A Difference. As I have witnessed throughout my journey, when the rich and the poor come together, it is not just the poor who are enriched.
