“Mankind is a single body and each nation a part of that body.
We must never say “What does it matter to me if some part of the world is ailing?” If there is such an illness, we must concern ourselves with it as though we were having that illness.”
~ Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Dear friends,

We are nearing the close of a life-changing year here at Grand Circle Foundation. We are all still feeling the loss of our founder, Alan Lewis. But we also know that the best way to honor Alan’s legacy is to keep moving forward with Grand Circle’s mission of changing people’s lives.

Giving back
to the world we travel

By bringing cultures together and teaching us about our shared humanity, travel has the power to change the world, one school, one village, one person at a time. When determining how we can help the people, schools and communities we visit, we always ask for the wisdom of local leadership and the involvement of the community to ensure we are providing what is needed. We currently support 109 schools and organizations in 59 countries.
