Travel need not be just about satisfying one's wanderlust but also has potential to benefit local communities. Beyond the economic benefits of bringing foreign currency into a local economy, travellers can also impact people in the communities they visit through socially-conscious travel choices, participating in various activities and even actively giving back to the communities they have embraced. This panel features two women who found that their initial visits to various communities made such a profound impression on them, that they returned to give something back to those communities, and one woman who's made it her mission to shine a light on the ordinary Indian woman.
