Our Member Travel Program

Together Women Rise’s Travel Program provides meaningful and inspirational travel experiences for our members. These trips offer opportunities for members to connect face-to-face with our grantees and the women and girls we serve. Our goal is that these experiences will deepen our members’ understanding of the issues facing women and girls in the developing world, especially the women we support, while fostering strong bonds of friendship with travelers.

Together Women Rise’s exclusive travel provider is Elevate Destinations, based in Cambridge MA, which specializes in designing and implementing travel programs for nonprofit organizations while empowering and respecting the local destinations. It is a female-owned and operated social enterprise with a strong commitment to sustainability practices and gender issues.

Together Women Rise works with Elevate Destinations to select trip destinations that are of interest to our members and allow visits to Together Women Rise grantees. We are committed to offering unique travel experiences at a variety of price points in order to appeal to as many of our members as possible.

Visiting Together Women Rise Grantees

Together Women Rise members interested in visiting one of our grantees are encouraged to participate in a Together Women Rise sanctioned trip through Elevate Destinations. On occasion, our members are interested in connecting with grantees when they are traveling on their own. Some of our grantees have their own visitor/volunteer models and are well-equipped to handle tourists.  For others, accommodating visitors can cause undue hardship because of their limited staff and resources. Together Women Rise has developed some guidelines that will help to minimize any hardship on our grantees while allowing our members to connect face-to-face with the women and girls we serve.

2023 Trips



August 10-18, 2023


Together Women Rise is traveling to Tanzania – one of the most beloved and enchanting destinations in the world!  Far more than just a place to see the ‘Big Five’ and the wildebeest migration, Tanzania offers a wealth of hospitality and the opportunity for cross-cultural exchange.

On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, Together Women Rise highlights the work of two of our incredible past grantees: Secondary Education for Girls Advancement (SEGA) and African People & Wildlife (APW). The SEGA Girls School is a residential secondary school for girls who otherwise are unable to attend school due to extreme poverty. African People & Wildlife is a grassroots, community-based conservation organization in the Maasai Steppe of northern Tanzania. APW’s living walls, student scholarships, and business enterprise projects provide household income security for the present generation of Maasai women and girls and the next.

Your experience will be incredibly immersive as you’ll spend multiple days with each grantee for up-close experiences with these amazing organizations. Please join us!



  • Spend a weekend with students at the SEGA Girls School in Morogoro, where you’ll be immersed in the school’s community while staying at the on-campus lodge
  • Hike the enchanting Uluguru Mountains in Morogoro
  • Visit the APOPO hero rats that are trained to detect land mines and tuberculosis
  • Learn about African People & Wildlife’s unique model to support community-driven conservation at their headquarters, the Noloholo Environmental Center
  • Search for large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala and even cheetah on a safari in Tarangire National Park


Our August 2023 trip to Tanzania has been incredibly popular, and all spots have now been filled!  If you are still interested in this trip, please register to be added to the wait list in case any cancellations occur.  Click here to see the trip itinerary and to add your name to the wait list.
