In 2014 199 backpacktivists travelled on 22 summer programs to 7 regions & raised $138, 143.54


Let's exceed that amount in 2015 and support our local partners even more!


Operation Groundswell is dedicated to cultivating a community of globally active and ethical backpackers working to create positive social change with local communities in the developing world.  OG is a collaborative organization that lives, breathes, and learns with the communities where we facilitate programs. 

We are unique in that OG teams hand-deliver the funds raised and develop tangible projects that the participant you are supporting will implement on the ground.  

For the purpose of transparency the program fee and community contribution are separated.  All the funds generated from this online fundraising effort will directly support our community and NGO partners on the ground. 

IMPORTANT: Operation Groundswell is currently a registered non-profit.  As such, we cannot offer tax receipts at this time and hope all donors understand.
