The TreadRight Foundation is working with partners in the Amazon region of Ecuador to establish a clean water project.

A joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands – including Trafalgar and Insight Vacations – the TreadRight Foundation is working in Ecuador with WE, an international charity.

The partners are supporting the community of Kanambu in Ecuador to provide clean water to drink and use for cooking; develop sanitation facilities for washing and going to the toilet; and build infrastructure such as irrigation or catchment systems for food production.

Brett Tollman, founder of the TreadRight Foundation and chief executive at TTC, said: “The Kanambu project continues TreadRight’s commitment to helping deliver water interventions in many of the destinations we visit.

“We are so proud to have now partnered with WE in working to deliver clean water to this community in the Amazon.

“Having partnered with WE for years now on a number of sustainability projects and immersive volunteer trips, we appreciate their recognition of the unique needs of each community and their thorough commitment to each project.”
