Vivejar was born out a clear need in Brazil for local and authentic travel experiences that promote positive social impacts. With over 10 years of experience working with local communities throughout Brazil, Vivejar prides itself in providing high quality travel experiences that places local communities at the heart of its model.
Vivejar is a social enterprise whose mission is to contribute to local community empowerment. We believe in ethical business practices that provide local travel experiences that in turn make the world a better place.
Promote positive change through our work is what drives us every day. And more than say that we are a company that promotes sustainable tourism and generates positive impact, Vivejar is committed to measure and disclose this impact. We are born as a B company and share with hundreds of other companies around the world the belief that we can use business for good, making the world a better place.
For us, our work begins deeply knowing the realities where we operate, planning and drawing together with the community the experiences offered, the benefits generated from our activity, minimizing the negative effects and being very transparent with our results. That’s what you can expect from Vivejar and can extend here.
What makes family accommodation unique is exactly that – it’s about a family that hosts the visitors, they will be sharing a house with the family, live with them, they will be part of the family for the period they are staying. They enjoy experiences with them, and they leave experiences with us. This is what solidarity travelling is all about.”
I enjoy very much to host travellers, and I really like meeting new people who are different and from different places. Before, we would only meet other people when we were going to the Trade Fairs to sell our handcrafts. Hosting people from other places is a big privilege for us. I like it very much, and not mentioning the extra income we have when people come to our house to have lunch with us, to buy our pieces of art, as well the positive influences they have on our lives.
The major part of the income is generated by the women. All the artisans are farmers as well. However, due to the drought, many times people sow, but not always harvest something. So, we need to sell our handcrafts in order to have income.
