What You Get

We specialize in reward and team building trips that blend fulfilling volunteering initiatives with relaxation and adventure. Or in other words incentive trips that let you “have your cake and eat it too”.

Memorable Experiences

Enriching reward travel blends a luxurious incentive trip with a community development element. A simple formula that is far more potent and memorable than a mere “jolly” at a beach resort.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Your company can be sustainable and make a positive impact, without compromising on the quality of the experience. To that end, in Latin America we are partnered with Rainforest Alliance to help promote sustainability in the region. You can rest assured that your hotels and other services actively care for the environment and enrich communities.

Inspirational Trips

We will make your next incentive trip, team building event or off-site meeting so much more enriching by infusing it with a “giving back” component.”

Why Give Back?

Your employees are looking for more than just a place to work. They want to be inspired, make a difference, and work for an employer that is not only good at what they do, but also does good in the wider community.


Consumers believe corporations should place equal weight on business and society.

Type of Trip

Incentive Trip

Reward, retain, engage and inspire your top performers with memorable trips that retain the luxury hotels, unique activities and gala events, which include a hands-on give back element that bonds your teams, increases their loyalty and improves your CSR reputation.


Enjoy an exotic location, provide your staff with new information and networking opportunities in productive meetings, and make the trip meaningful by helping out in a needy community for an afternoon.

Team Building

Nothing bonds your team better than working together to help improve the lives of those less fortunate, so you can build a library, houses, classrooms, bikes for under privileged children, even prosthetic limbs for landmine victims.

Charity Challenges

Your staff can hike Kilimanjaro, cycle off the beaten path in Vietnam or trek Machu Picchu in Peru, and raise much needed funds for your chosen charity as a result. We can even arrange for you to engage with the recipients of your fund raising, to make your trip all the more meaningful.

How We Put Your Trip Together

Whether you are planning an incentive trip, destination meeting, corporate retreat, charity challenge or team building event, leave the headaches to us. Hands Up will help you with all aspects of your program so that you can do what you do best: run a great company.


  • We perform a thorough needs analysis, assessing your groups mission, objectives and goals.
  • That way we can match your group with the right humanitarian program and location.

 Program Implementation

Based on the needs that have been identified we will customise the program to give you a fun, rewarding and memorable experience.

We were all one team, working hard, different skills, really good to see sweat coming off our brows, playing with the kids, who have not got a lot but are really happy and we can see we have made a real difference to them. In terms of fulfilment: 10/10.


With over 30 destinations (and more in the pipeline) you can be sure to find the perfect location for your next event. Better yet, let us help you! Send us a brief and one of our expert consultants will beaver away to create the ideal program for your group. In the meantime, check out the destinations to help inspire you.

Sustainable Travel

For travel to be sustainable, you need to connect with the people and the place, and leave both better off than before you arrived. You can travel like that when you book with Hands Up Incentives.

In the context of leaving the people better off, you can make a difference as a company in the lives of children, the sick, or those seeking to better provide for their families, and more.

In the context of leaving the place better off, you can stay in accommodation that is still 5*, but which actively cares for the environment, both in their design and in their everyday practices.

Blend this with carbon neutral transport and activities that help you minimize your carbon footprint, and it adds up to a compelling proposition and an awesome, sustainable trip for you and your company that future generations will thank you for.
