CIP/CSR trips have been a cornerstone of 1896 Travel since its early beginnings as we feel it is important for us to play a role for those in need of an extra hand especially across Southeast Asia and the Himalayan Highlands. Community Involvement Programmes(CIP) or Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) trips allow you to lend your skills and exchange knowledge with others.

Apart from being a rewarding experience, CIP is also a great way to gain insights into different communities. In Southeast Asia or the Himalayan regions, there are plenty of projects ready for those who are eager to roll up their sleeves and impact the world positively and we would like to make it happen. Most importantly, these regions are teeming with an abundance of invaluable knowledge and there is much to be learnt.

    For Community Involvement in Singapore, we offer experiences within the following categories:

    • Physical Work: To help a community by volunteering for laborious work in projects that promote the welfare of the community. Labor work might include cleaning of old folks’ homes, painting of houses and fences or even renovating houses.
    • Educational Work: Be a subject tutor, project leader or sports coach for local schools, communities or sports teams.
    • Interaction: Playing with disadvantaged children or be part of local multi-cultural celebrations or events where you can dress up in traditional attire and participate in a community’s traditions such as Chinese New Year, Vesak Day, Hari Raya Haji, Thaipusam etc
