Curious about our aid projects?
We want to discover the world and pass it on in a green and more social way. That’s why we travel around the world as green as can be and give direct and local help to people in need and nature conservation projects.
Our goal is to help human and nature. We're fighting social inequality and supporting nature conservation. Not by giving money, but by buying what's needed at local shops. For example, paying for the groceries on a market. Buying a goat, sheep or cow. Or we take care of the repair of a broken roof, refrigerator or bicycle. A visit to the doctor or dentist. Medicines, clothes, shoes, a new roof. Helping start a small business etc. etc.
Every day is a new adventure. We cycle about 60 km a day and never know where we will stop that day for the night. We then look for a suitable place, or we ask locals if we can sleep in their garden, garage or shed. Through this way of traveling we meet many people in different living conditions. This way we can offer local and direct help to people and nature.
We write a short story about the specific situation and the help we offer. We add our own footage to visualize our aid projects. Each project has its own spot on our website. This spot is called “XPLORaid”.
Foundation XPLORid ensures a transparent proces and accountability for our spendings. All donations to the foundation are used to help people in need and nature projects. We finance our world bicycle tour completely by ourselves.
XPLORid Foundation is a registered charity as a "Stichting" in the Netherlands. Our foundation has a PBO status. This means that the foundation is a public benefit organization. The advantage for you as a donor is that you can deduct your donation from the Dutch income or corporation tax.
To meet our PBO status 90% of the donations are spent on public benefit.
We offer help on education, care and housing by financially supporting a school, hospital, care institution or orphanage.
In addition, we provide individual support for 10,000 euro (10% of the donations). More information about this PBO status can be found in this blog.
