This feature is part of our Slow Fund Series: projects and stories that highlight the communities we visit and how we give back. We established The Slow Fund to support innovative projects that are reflective of the regions that inspire them.
Whether through educational, cultural, or conservation and preservation initiatives, the Fund helps protect various forms of heritage and promotes the health of vibrant living cultures and the eco-systems that support them.
We’re thrilled to be the official travel partner of the World Monuments Fund (WMF), the non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting endangered ancient and historic sites around the world. Working with the WMF, we’ll be able to craft trips that feature behind-the-scenes tours and insider access to some of the world’s most treasured sites.
B&R’s values are exceptionally well aligned with the philosophy and goals of the WMF: we genuinely believe in and practice the virtues and benefits of responsible and sustainable tourism; we have immense respect for the places we travel and the people we meet; we believe in going in deep and off the beaten path to reveal the true character of a destination; and we know firsthand that by sharing our passion with our travellers we can send them home more enlightened, enlivened and educated than when they left.
