The Exodus Travels Foundation

The Exodus Travels Foundation 

Here at Exodus Travels, we are all passionate about the power of travel to make a positive impact on the world around us. We work hard to make sure our adventures empower and protect the communities and environments we take people to visit (see more here) and we are thrilled to support this goal further through the Exodus Travels Foundation.

Our Foundation’s mission:
To harness the power of travel to improve life in hard-to-reach places.

Our Foundation’s focus:
Community empowerment and conservation

Launched in 2019, the Foundation consolidates decades of support for life-changing, community-based projects across the world. This is work which we simply wouldn’t have been able to undertake without the motivation, generosity and endeavours of our amazing community of colleagues, customers and partners. We are so grateful and we hope you'll continue on this journey with us!

Meet our Trustees

Pete Burrell – Until retiring from the role of Managing Director at Exodus Travels in early 2018, Pete spent decades being actively involved in Adventure Travel all over the world. His passion for the places he worked in led him to get involved in numerous projects aimed at improving the lives of people living in the areas tourists visit. Not least in Nepal where a local school has been named in his honour in recognition of all the work he has done there, particularly following the catastrophic 2015 earthquake. Pete’s background and career make him the ideal chairman for our board of Trustees.

Richard Isaacs – An experienced Finance Director and travel industry professional, having worked with such notable brands as BAE Systems, Kuoni and TUI Travel before joining Exodus, Richard has a passion for travel, development and sustainability. He is an active member in his local community (including bookkeeping for his children’s school parents association) and a keen cyclist. Richard is the ideal candidate to be the first Treasurer of the Exodus Travels Foundation.
