About Program

Globe Aware’s Cuba People-to-people mission is to promote cultural awareness and sustainability. There are a variety of projects volunteers can work on. In Cuba, amidst shortages of prescription drugs, alternative treatments like herbal remedies have gained significance, particularly amid and after the COVID-19 crisis. A notable Cuban initiated a Medicinal Plant Garden project to educate the community on using endemic flora for various ailments. Due to long waits for healthcare, locals often rely on plant-based and homeopathic remedies. In another initiative, a renowned artist has been adorning homes in a fishing town near Havana with intricate mosaic murals, enhancing the neighborhood's aesthetic appeal. Volunteers, through organizations like Globe Aware, may contribute by painting or continuing mosaic work.

An amazing experience with a customer-oriented company

This is my second trip with Globe Aware as a trip leader. I found Globe Aware and began a conversation about how they may be able to help my students find a meaningful abroad experience containing a service component. Their communication is excellent; there is nothing worse than putting in a phone call or e-mail to someone with whom you are trying to do business and then feel ignored, because of how long they take to answer. Rest assured that this will not be the case with Globe Aware, a company of dedicated professionals who exemplify superb customer service at every turn. Once you get to your destination, you may be assured that the in-country coordinators will be the same way. The Cuba trip was incredible from beginning to end. Since we as American citizens have not been allowed to visit our neighbor during my lifetime, it was especially meaningful to be able to go there under the guidance of a company who already had experience there and could speak to the circumstances of the country, what to expect, and more. I have dealt with many companies of this type and can say without reservation that Globe Aware is within the top three. I am planning another trip with them for next year. If you are on the fence about which provider to use, look no further. These folks will deal with you in a most professional manner and you can have confidence that they will deliver a superior product.
