Today Raptim Humanitarian Travel, the global organization dedicated to meeting the uncommon travel needs of humanitarian organizations, announced Unitas Rejser as its first Humanitarian Travel Franchise organization. This new franchise concept allows Raptim to bolster its worldwide presence and to get even more people where they are needed most.Raptim and Unitas, passionate likeminded peopleAs a Raptim Humanitarian Travel Franchise, the humanitarian travel activities of Unitas Rejser will be fully integrated into the global Raptim organization. Raptim Humanitarian Travel has the ambition to grow and serve 500.000 humanitarian travelers in 2020 by getting them where they are needed most. This expansion will come from organic growth from existing offices, and by creating partnerships with like-minded organizations like Unitas Rejser. “The selection of a franchise agency is based on something that we believe is authentic. And therefore a true added value to the organization: the value of passionate likeminded people that share our belief and vision,” says Bart Kruijsen, Managing Director of Raptim Humanitarian Travel. “This is the foundation of the connection. What follows is a pragmatically organized implementation of operations, branding & training. But the like-mindedness is the key.”For almost forty years Raptim is working together with Unitas Rejser, the market leader in humanitarian travel in Denmark, focussing on NGO’s and missionary organizations. Owned by the Danish YMCA YWCA and based in Silkeborg, Unitas Rejser serves over 120 humanitarian organizations in Denmark. Among these are the Danish Red Cross, SOS Children Villages, Amnesty International, Oxfam, Action Aid and ADRA Denmark. Unitas Rejser also offers travel packages for groups such as students and schools. These activities will continue under the Unitas Rejser brand name.
