Travel on an
INSIGHT TRIPTravel the untrodden path

Embark on an unforgettable adventure with an Opportunity Insight Trip. Get a taste of real life in countries like India and Indonesia, visiting the incredible families and communities who are doing all they can to leave poverty behind – thanks to a hand up from someone like you.  

Away from the tourist trail, experience the incredible honour of being welcomed into local homes and villages. Shop at businesses started with small loans made possible by you, and share moments with mothers, fathers and children that will help you gain special insight into their daily reality, challenges and dreams.  

This is your opportunity to experience a trip like no other – one that is likely to repaint the way you see the world.

How it works

  • See the impact of your giving first-hand by visiting with families using small loans to grow businesses and journey out of poverty.
  • Experience a new culture on a fun, safe and eye-opening journey with like-minded supporters that you will never forget.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of poverty and see what can be done to break the cycle of poverty - for good.

WHAT A TYPICAL INSIGHT TRIP LOOKS LIKE

On an Opportunity Insight Trip, you’ll spend time with program experts and local hosts who know the culture inside out – their personal perspectives will give you an intimate understanding of local life. Best of all, you'll be able to visit families and see firsthand just how much small loans are transforming their lives and strengthening their communities.

Cost - A typical trip costs between $1500-$1800 and includes accommodation, meals, bottled water, internal flights, tips, transfers and sightseeing. Excluded are international flights, visas, travel insurance and any required immunisations.

Who goes and for how long? - Trips are typically 7-8 days long with 4-10 participants from around Australia. Each trip is accompanied by a least one Opportunity International Australia team member as well as local program staff.

Accommodation - Single, double and twin share rooms in 4 star hotels.

 

UPCOMING TRIPS

We are planning upcoming Opportunity Insight Trips in 2024 to Indonesia to see the impact of our local programs firsthand.

In October 2024, we are also hosting the Trek for Opportunity - a nine-day trip trekking the Eastern Himalayas of India, which also includes visits to women and families supported by Opportunity's programs.

To find out more, please email us at insighttrips@opportunity.org.au and we’ll be in touch to share more info and to discuss upcoming trip options with you.
