CERTIFICATE OF QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
Rebecca Adventure Travel received the Distintivo Q Certificate with an outstanding score of 83%.
The Distinctive Q Certificate is a recognition from the city of Quito for companies that implement sustainable and qualitative practices in tourism. These companies need to offer premium services and contribute to raising the quality of tourism in the Quito area.
Rebecca and her team are dedicated to continuously educate themselves about sustainable tourism and implement it in their daily (business) practices. For this certification Rebecca and Michael attended several seminars about, amongst other things, environmental issues like pollution and waste management.
Afterwards the city of Quito came to the Rebecca Adventure Travel offices to inspect the implementation of environmental, social, quality and business practices. Their positive evaluation was rewarded with an outstanding score of 83% and the Distintivo Q Certificate.
Rebecca Adventure Travel is proud sponsor of the ‘Local Dreamers foundation’ in Quito
The mission of Local Dreamers is to offer a safe environment in which Ecuadorian children and youngsters between the ages of 6 to 16 year, regardless of gender, race, socioeconomic background, can discover and develop their talents. Local Dreamers create self-sustaining projects, which will be in time governed by the inhabitants of the project areas (the poor area’s of Quito). Within 10 years the role of Local Dreamers in the projects will be limited to advising and controlling. Local Dreamers are using sports and games, language, creativity and (intercultural) communication to stimulate the personal and social development of Ecuadorian children and teenagers.
