Our Mission

We at Tales of the Pan American Highway feel very strongly about learning, exploring, understanding and giving back to the communities that we encounter while on Expedition. Environmental awareness, Cultural exchange and Volunteering are the three pillar stones of our expedition. We will share stories of the people we meet, and how their lives are affected by their environment. We’ll participate in a cultural exchange to understand their way of living, and we’ll also offer ourselves for volunteering.  Check this page often for updates as we begin our journey to Central and South America and read about the wonderful people.

 

Mission Statement

Environmental

  • We will conduct environmental studies for understanding human relationships, perceptions and policies towards the environment.
  • These studies will consist of interviewing , documenting, recording and reporting on environmental issues that affect the local population. Whether it’s air, water or soil quality, we’ll get a true picture of what is happening and what is being done, should be done and can be accomplished for the future.

Cultural exchange     

 

  • Introducing ourselves and share our mission to understand different cultures such as the Aztec, Mayan, and Inca descendants.  We will highlight the similarities and diversity to dispel stereotypes and misunderstanding. Our intention is to foster goodwill, harmony and peace.

Volunteering

  •    We will volunteer our time and skilled services as we deemed needed.
  • Orphanages
  • Under privileged Schools
  • Endangered animal conservation efforts

How can you help?  Your donation of time, money and any resources you have would be greatly appreciated. Schools supplies, spreading the word via your social media, or just sending a letter to a child is all welcomed. Please read more about opportunities to participate on our Sponsorship page.

    Hi, I saw your post about Mexico City written in December 2012. Are you still on your way south from there, or headed back north? We are in El Tule, Oaxaca and have a small campground that you’d be welcome to stay at! Our website is http://www.overlanderoasis.com check it out!

    Well, now I’m confused. I see further posts in February 2013 from the Yucatan… so have you bypassed us? Or is this your scouting expedition before the main event in March/April? Keep in touch, we’d enjoy meeting like-minded overlanders and hearing about your adventures.
