The Solidarity Adventure is a solidarity travel project from AMI which enables participants to co-finance and participate in a concrete development project in addition to performing leisure activities suggested and organized by local populations. These trips are genuine demonstrations of great cultural richness, with a mixture of beliefs, faith and ancestral rituals where adventure lovers learn to respect, cooperate, and live cultural differences and get to know many authentic aspects of a country.

Dates of the next Solidarity Adventures:

Due to the pandemic, the programs of the Solidarity Adventure mission in Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Brazil are suspended since March 2020. However, the dynamism of the project remains, and we have decided to create a new initiative focused on national heritage and the protection of the environment. 

The Azores Biodiversity program aims to finance and promote participation in environmental projects on the island of São Miguel, in partnership with local associations, while helping to revitalize the local economy.

How is the funding applied?

The value of this Solidarity Adventure to the Azores is €900, of which €150 represents the donation that will be applied to the project to be supported.

In the case of a project developed jointly with non-governmental partner organizations, which carry out their work with disadvantaged communities, support is needed for their implementation.

Thus, the Adventurer finances a specific project, and then has the opportunity to finish it in person and attend the opening ceremony. That is, the amount related to the financing (which will correspond to the receipt of a tax-deductible donation receipt, increased by 40%) is destined to the realization of the local project, in which the Adventurers will participate.

At the beginning of 2018, the Solidarity Adventure project won the Five Star Award for the best Social Responsibility project. The results obtained in the tests and market study gives us the confidence to affirm that the Solidarity Adventure is a project considered by the consumers as very good.

Being a member of the Solidarity Adventure is to participate in work that aims to improve the health and living conditions of local communities, fostering the idea that each society can engage in its own development. In carrying out the task for which it has been appointed, each adventurer contributes to promoting the sustainability of projects developed by local civil society, while helping to create jobs and securing populations, thereby preventing migration to increasingly poor and overcrowded urban centers.

When the holidays end, instead of maps, guides and entrance tickets to monuments, we will all cherish the precious memories of having shared the lives of other people, with the realization of having contributed to a greater cause, along with the feeling of having been a part of something unique.
