Is Our Better World (OBW) a travel agent? Does OBW gain a commission from my enquiry or booking?
No, we are not. We are not a travel agent, nor do we get commission from your queries or bookings.
We are storytellers for good. We tell stories of everyday people doing good to inspire others to take action and help. The stories featured in The Better Traveller are those that are travel and hospitality-related. We thought it would be a good idea to compile and share them so you can see that your travel choices and activities can help make a difference in the world you’re exploring.
Our Better World is the digital storytelling initiative of the Singapore International Foundation.
So you're not an agent, but a storyteller. Why are you telling these stories? What exactly does Our Better World do?
We tell these stories to inspire people like you to consider how you can make a difference – in this case, since we are telling you travel stories – to become a better traveller. We believe that no action is too small and every action that helps others matter. We thought it would be good to showcase through our stories, how travellers like you can make choices that benefit local communities, by connecting you to our story partners (featured in our stories) who are delivering these unique travel experiences.
At the core, Our Better World is about moving people to action through stories. You can make a difference – and we want to remind and inspire you and others that we all have the power to make the world better.
Will you be adding more to this series?
Yes! We are always on the look-out for stories of good, but now that we have a new home for travel stories, we are definitely more keen than ever to unearth and tell these stories. If you have any in mind, please let us know here.
I know of a travel business that helps the community too, how do I tell you about it?
Feel free to share about it here.
Will you sell my personal info?
