Roots in the Peace Corps

Keteka was founded by two Peace Corps volunteers focused on helping rural and indigenous communities in Panama actually benefit from tourism. Kyle and Jack recognized that there were thousands of local guides and communities that needed, but lacked, direct access to travelers. At the same time, there were millions of travelers searching for off the beaten path experiences, yet lacked an easy way to find and book them. Eventually, by leveraging their connection to the Peace Corps Network, they began onboarding previously marginalized guides and communities, and offering travel experiences to a small group of friends and family.

Our Theory of Change

Local guides possess unique knowledge that enables them to provided travelers with genuine travel experiences. Lack of resources and low computer literacy among guides, however, reduce the visibility of such experiences online. This ultimately limits traveler exposure, decreases tourism, and caps local benefits.

Keteka leverages a global network of experts to find, validate, and onboard local guides and experiences onto an online marketplace.

Keteka’s model drives more dollars to guides, impacting grassroots entrepreneurship, community-wide income, and overall quality of life.
