My Senior Thesis was focused on creating a broad-based identity campaign that could provide a fresh approach on how adventure travel can achieve sustainable development in fair trade communities and bring about change through service. Fostering life-enriching, inter-cultural experiences in the fair trade farming communities of the developing world, RISE works to better the lives of these communities by providing meaningful and responsible volunteer service to these communities. Based on a sustainable model, RISE functions in a way that the volunteer's involvement is economically viable, environmentally conscientious, culturally respectful and politically acceptable.
