Not for Profit Trips with MEDLIFE
Safe, Educational, and Impactful
Looking for a different kind of travel experience? Our partner NGO, MEDLIFE, organizes not for profit Service Learning Trips (SLTs) to Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania, or Nicaragua. These are safe, educational, and impactful week-long journeys where participants work hand in hand with the local community on development projects and mobile medical clinics.
Service Learning Trips are 100% operated by and for MEDLIFE. Good Life Expeditions supports MEDLIFE by donating profits, bringing attention to their work, and giving our travelers a greater sense of connection with the world around them.
Why Service Learning Trips?
1. Providing Crucial Resources
The primary role of a service learning trip is to provide the resources to hire doctors, nurses, community organizers, engineers, and architects, as well as supplies such as medicine, educational materials, cement, busses, and food to actually make it happen. The resources allow MEDLIFE to aid the communities we work in by screening for diseases, providing education, and purchasing building materials.
2. Growing the MEDLIFE Movement
The SLT is also a crucial starting point for the MEDLIFE Movement, as it provides an educational opportunity for participants to see firsthand the harsh realities of extreme poverty, and how MEDLIFE approaches these issues. They learn about foreign culture and countries by spending time with patients, community members, and medical professionals as well as participate in workshops to become well versed on local and global issues. All SLTs are supported by a local MEDLIFE team, and participants have 24/7 on the ground emergency contacts and are covered by thorough insurance.
