In today’s age of consumer and employees’ conscious awareness, companies need to be creative about how they bring Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), philanthropy and wellness into the workplace. Research shows that employees’ happiness leads to higher productivity, and therefore profits, for companies that take the right steps. Even with small budgets, companies can make a positive global and local impact while increasing employees’ satisfaction and engagement. The results of these efforts and successes can then be showcased to consumers. Tread Light Travels wants to inspire you and show how this can be done.
Daniella Baker’s passion for philanthropic work was born from her own life experience. She traveled extensively throughout Latin America and South East Asia, where she worked and volunteered for a variety of non-profit organizations. In Bolivia, she designed an educational curriculum and helped start a school for local children. In Vietnam, she started a volunteer-based ESL program for local employees serving the tourist industry. In India, she worked at Alice Project for Universal Education, a start-up educational program for local boys and girls. Her travels brought her expanded horizons about other cultures, and diverse ways of living and seeing the world. From these experiences was born Tread Light Travels and the desire to share it with others. She has a BA in Educational Studies from the University of Delaware, a MA in Public Administration from the University of Colorado – Denver, and a Waldorf Teaching Certification. Daniella still volunteers whenever she can and loves to bring her family along.
