Philanthropy

Matiana Travel’s parent company, the Indigo Group of Companies, strives to retain Turkey’s unique character through a variety of programs. It sponsored the renovation of a church in the Goreme Open-Air Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The company also supports an organization that provides job opportunities to needy women by purchasing handicrafts made by women artisans, which are given to guests. Each year, Indigo Group donates a trip to the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation to offer as a fundraising incentive. In addition, one tree is planted in Turkey for each guest of Matiana Travel.
