Human Connections is a nonprofit organization that connects local people with global audiences. Our work starts with our clients, primarily artisans and tradespeople in Latin America. When then invite travelers and students to interact with our clients through internships, week-long trips, or day tours. Through these programs, we provide a platform for locals to share their culture and have control of their stories. These interaction activities are also financially rewarding for our clients as we pay them for their time and help increase their sales. We aim to empower local communities while promoting conversations that change perspectives and improve understanding. We not only impact our clients, but also out guests, influencing their lives beyond quantifiable metrics. While much of our impact is intangible and often unquantifiable, we do our best to measure and fairly represent how we affect the lives of both our clients and student travelers who spend the most amount of time with us.
