A&K Philanthropic Travel
Discover A Legacy of Philanthropy
In honor of A&K's 50th Anniversary, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy has published A Legacy of Philanthropy, a book commemorating the valuable grassroots conservation, education, community development and public health programs it supports around the world.
Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP) is committed to socially and ecologically responsible travel, as well as helping travellers make a personal connection in the places they visit. Each of Abercrombie & Kent's 50 offices plays a hands-on role in its community, sponsoring on-site projects that benefit the people as well as the environment.
Philanthropic travel focuses on conservation — both cultural and ecological — and humanitarian efforts. On expedition trips such as Kilimanjaro or Antarctica Philanthropic Journeys, travellers support important scientific projects tracking the impact of climate change on places at risk. Since the program was launched in 2007, travellers on expeditions have delivered two automatic weather monitoring stations to Mount Kilimanjaro and provided equipment needed at Palmer Station to study the marine environment in Antarctica.
Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropic Journeys and the travellers that take part in them help to preserve some of the world's most extraordinary places for future generations.
