Love Travel Guides is committed to ‘Conscious Travel’. We aim to be Conscious of the society & country we are visiting & believe in contributing to it in a meaningful way. Ten per cent of the profits from our print publications will go to the Love Travel Guides Foundation to assist Conscious organisations & charities that undertake social &/or environmentally sustainable work in India. In addition, we recommend supporting the socially &/or environmentally sustainable organisations highlighted in our print publications, as they make significant contributions to livelihood support and improved living conditions in India.
