Founded in 2004, ASMALLWORLD relaunched in the spring of 2013 as the leading international travel and lifestyle club with an emphasis on community, charity, and collective travel wisdom from the very best source—the well-traveled. Membership is comprised of people united by a common sensibility and sense of purpose: to seek out the extraordinary and share their experiences with one another. No matter where they go, they open their lives and passports to each other to ensure that they feel a sense of belonging—and feel at home—anywhere in the world.

The ASMALLWORLD Foundation was created to harness that spirit of selflessness that our members all share. By leveraging the power of our global network—and partnering with a growing list of leading international charities—the ASWF will address today’s most dire issues in global health, education, and women’s rights in developing countries.

After a great deal of consideration, we have selected three flagship partners: charity: water, Plan International USA (specifically their Because I Am A Girl campaign) and New Light.

charity: water is a non-profit dedicated to providing access to clean, safe water for people in developing countries; and there’s 800 million in need, that’s one in nine people. Plan International USA is part of a global federation that works side by side with communities in 50 developing countries to develop customized solutions, from healthcare to education and child protection. New Light, based in Kolkata, India, is a charitable trust working to protect the rights of women in prostitution and their children.

Through these incredible organizations, the ASW Foundation ensures that together we can change lives and make our small world a better one too.
