    My experience with Vivid Roots was phenomenal! I loved every single moment of my experience in Guatemala. I felt safe from the get-go (my first solo vacation. I was super nervous.) Everyone from the team was friendly. I love how conscious the company is and gives back. I definitely recommend going on a trip! ❤️❤️❤️

  • Hans Hansen

    Amazing guides, beautiful country, and most importantly, the profound impact this group is having on communities in Guatemala. Being a part of that will be something I remember for the rest of my life. Highly recommend getting involved with these guys.

  • Sara Neal

    How do you write a review on such a life-changing experience… it’s a hard thing to do, I’d 110% recommend anyone to do this trip, it was such a positive and meaningful trip that blew my mind and heart! I made friends for life both in the trip and people I met in Guatemala, I can’t wait to do it again one day ❤️🤙🏽

  • Ella Elizabeth

    We have went on two impact adventure tours with Vivid Roots. Last year we went to Guatemala, and we had an amazing, life changing experience.
    We made memories and friendships that will last a life time. This year, Ecuador had a little something extra. It was an absolutely phenomenal trip that far exceeded any expectations we had. We grew on existing friendships that were created on the previous trip, and made a few new friends as well.
    We loved the home stay experience. We formed deep connections with strangers that we didnt know was possible. Our hosts were incredibly loving and generous. We will forever consider them family.We had an intense, spiritual moment while hiking in the Andean mountains.
    I dont want to say more and spoil it for anyone else – but seriously – YOU NEED to experience this!!
    We got engaged on this trip! It was the most perfect proposal, and I wouldn’t have it any other way than in the beautiful country of Ecuador, surrounded by the people we love.We can’t thank the VR team enough for organizing such a special trip. We loved every minute of the journey, and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone! Viva el Ecuador! We can’t wait to go back!

Make a REAL Impact

We are on a mission to sustainably impact 1 MILLION PEOPLE!

Our mission is simple. Inspire people to live life to the fullest and help those in need along the way. So, “impact” is truly the heart of Vivid Roots. We focus on increasing access to clean water, education and health services in underserved communities.

We believe by focusing on these fundamental pillars, we can empower communities to raise themselves out of their situation. We work closely with local governments, community leaders and other non-profits to ensure the success of every project.

When you join an impact adventure you will be helping to fund a project. Your dollars will help purchase materials, then you will be working alongside the community and the rest of your group to implement the project during the impact portion of your trip!

663 million people around the world lack access to clean water.

As a result, 16,000 people die each week from water-related illness and disease… that’s more people than all forms of violence combined, including war! 43% are children under the age 5.

The good news is, there are solutions! We can implement things such as wells and water filtration systems to ensure people have clean water forever! Join an impact adventure and start making an impact today!

250 million children lack basic reading, writing & math skills. 

Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world. Education reduces poverty, empowers women and helps prevent disease and increases economic stability for families.

We work closely with teachers, school directors, and the local community leaders to ensure projects are giving kids the best possible opportunity at a better education.

The reality for millions of people around the world is that even the most basic public health services remain unreliable. In 2018, 6.2 million children and young adolescents died, mostly from preventable causes related to lack of access to proper health care.

Despite the scale of the challenge, solutions are in sight. Achieving sustainable development goals requires a global shift from treating diseases to strengthening health systems so that all children, adolescents, and women of reproductive age have access to affordable, quality health care.

At Vivid Roots, we work alongside underserved communities to help increase access to health services!

When it comes to giving our primary focus is sustainability. With all Vivid Roots projects, we want the communities to be better off long after we are gone and provide them the opportunity to thrive!
