Why does the Saintlo Foundation need my support?
Your donations enable us to offer free educational workshops in schools and travel grants to youth in vulnerable situations. The Saintlo Foundation aspires to create a world where travel contributes to breaking the cycle of social exclusion. Together, we can multiply the inspiring, positive experiences that shape a unified generation with strong values.
Who supports the foundation’s mission?
In order to confirm our direction, the Saintlo Foundation team ordered Léger to conduct a study in 2022. According to this study, in both Quebec and Ontario, seven out of ten respondents consider our mission to be relevant (75% in Quebec and 70% in Ontario) and consider that it is a lever that enables young people to fulfil their potential and realize their dreams (77% in Quebec and 71% in Ontario). Thus, the Saintlo Foundation’s social mission is valued by most Quebecers and Ontarians.
In addition, the majority of these populations appreciate the equality of opportunities when it comes to having access to travel experiences. In their opinion, whatever their social-economic background, young people deserve to have the chance to travel and enjoy the benefits the experience offers.
Contribute to the cause
Why give to the Saintlo Foundation to help disadvantaged youth or youth in vulnerable situations experience youth travel as personal development?
Many youth never get out of their environments. They therefore lose the chance to truly understand the world in its abundance. Their perspective on their future risks being limited to what little beyond the horizon their environment has shown them. Contributing financially to help vulnerable youth travel gives them the chance they need to truly blossom and see life from a broader perspective—not only for themselves, but for their family and friends too. This personalized educational experience enriches the entire society we live in together.
Your financial contribution will help youth with the following:
Access to educational opportunities
Many young people don’t have the financial means to take part in educational travel. Your financial contribution can help them access precious educational experiences that expand their horizons and elevate their learning.
Personal and professional development
Travel at a young age can have a profound impact on personal growth and development. It exposes youth to new cultures, perspectives and challenges, which in turn fosters independence, adaptability and resilience. These experiences can also strengthen self-confidence, improve communication skills and boost career perspectives.
Overall understanding and empathy
Travel gives young people the opportunity to interact with people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and communities. This direct contact fosters understanding, empathy and respect for different cultures, thus promoting a more inclusive and tolerant society.
Inspiration and motivation
Travel experiences can be transformative, inspire youth to dream big and motivate them to strive for their objectives. By supporting their travel projects, you can give young people the inspiration and motivation necessary to explore the world, follow their passions and have a positive impact on their life and their community.
Create memories for life
Travel at a young age creates memories and long-lasting friendships. Your financial contribution will enable youth to create experiences and relationships that they will cherish all their life..
