Co-giving | A community of giving

Co-giving is a contagious mission to unlock human potential. When we give, we give together.
Co-giving Trips are a combination of community immersion, heart-warming collaborations, breathtaking moments, and strengthening experiences. This is where you will see first hand what it is like to be on the ground immersed in the culture of another community lifestyle and everyday lives of real people around the globe. This is an opportunity to exist in days full of timeless giving and change lives through emotions and education one smile, one tear, one laugh at a time.

Why do we believe in the Impact of Gathering?

We believe that sustainable change happens when an internal passion and capacity is aligned with a real need. While we are focused on the power of the pen, we are also dedicated to creating clean and comfortable environments for children to learn and teachers to teach.

WHY? Because there is a high-powered art in where people gather that creates a human-centered approach to help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences, large and small, for work and for play. In order to create artistic gathering spaces, we equip the community with resources to enhance daily activities with the resources needed to encourage growth
