The Mad Cow Project came together after many discussions and a realisation of shared purpose.

Underlying this are our values:

  1. to travel in ways that promote the interests of both tourist and host
  2. to engage in development work led by local needs
  3. to work alongside individuals and organisations to re-imagine corporate and social communities

These values have been shaped by our observations of the world and are based on the following assumptions:

  1. there are tourists who are on a journey and they are curious, responsible and open to possibility
  2. there are developing communities looking for tourists keen to be involved in exploring possibilities with them that can lead to sustainable economic opportunities
  3. there are young professionals looking to explore how their profession fits into society and there are organisations looking to better engage with their staff and the community
