SMOKEY TOURS

 

Main themes: Talent Development & Community Based Tourism

  • SLUM TOURS: The idea of making a slum tour started with San Martin volunteer Juliette Kwee. A photo shoot was organized in the slums in September 2011 and in the Sining Kamalig Art Gallery. The exhibition attempted to break the preconceived notions about those children who live in one of the poorest areas of Metro Manila. A volunteer group of amateur and professional photographers documented these children playing. Following the success of the Art Walk, including seeing the talent of potential tourleaders in the area, and having seen the success of slum tours in India and Brazil, Juliette decided to start a similar tour in the Philippines in October 2011. The Smokey Mountain Tour was born, the idea being to educate the outside world about slums as well as to raise money for San Martin to help the community.

  • SCHOOL TOURS: mixed groups of local students & international travelers are visting local schools for an eductional program that will benefit the children and the participants of the tour.
