Human Connections is a non-profit organization that connects local people with international audiences. Our work starts with our partners — remarkable artisans, tradespeople, and organizations in Latin America. We then invite travelers and students to interact with our partners through day tours, weeklong trips, and internships.

Through these educational programs, we provide a platform for local people to share their culture and have agency over their stories. These interactions are also financially rewarding for our partners, as we pay them fairly for their time and help increase their sales.

Our goal is to empower local communities while fostering conversations that shift perspectives and increase understanding. We believe that responsible travel has the power to affect positive social change.
