"Traveling with Spark was a profoundly inspiring experience. I met amazing people, contributed in a meaningful way and now stay connected through Spark's unique partnership model."

Kathy Campbell Wolf - Impact Travel Alum & Spark Ventures Board Member

"The programs and operations are designed so as not to perpetuate a dependency syndrome in the communities they are operating, but to make them self sustainable. As the African proverb states, ‘It takes the whole village to raise a child.’ In this case it is a global village."

Head Teacher Ng’oma - Hope Community School Spark Ventures Social Impact Partner, Zambia

"We live in a global community, and it means so much to be a part of this, even a small part."
