Do GEEO groups visit schools while abroad?

We used to, but in 2018 our partner G Adventures, with consultation from the Child Safe Movement, adopted new guidelines that they feel can better protect children. These can be seen here: https://www.gadventures.com/about-us/responsible-travel/child-welfare/. GEEO understands the rational and although it might disappoint some of our teacher guests that wish to visit schools, we ask our participants to follow these guidelines. We will still occasionally meet with local teachers, but these meetings are often difficult and unreliable to arrange, so are not a guaranteed part of any of our programs.
