About Us

A few words:

Milna’s managers have been working actively, in the fields of education and leisure, for over 14 years. Our rich experience is drawn from many different travels we have organized through the years (Exchange Program, Discovery Experience programs, Linguistic stay in various countries like: USA, Canada, Spain, Morocco, Germany, Switzerland, Tunisia, India, England, Netherlands, Ireland...).

Milna is a Non Profit Organization. We offer projects, of various kinds with the same goal: To create links between people. We have a deep understanding of the values of the countries we operate and the way these rich and complex countries, their educational institutes function. This allows us to manage the projects, we offer by, ourselves.

Milna has developed its powerful local networks. These networks help us to handle many different situations. Because we understand the cultures and the nitty-gritties of the countries that we operate in, we know how to find solutions quickly and efficiently.

Milna is a team of dynamic and experienced members. We have worked with city halls, independent companies, associations, NGOs, schools. Through the years, Milna has acquired a significant amount of experience in the management of travel and other ambitious projects. We continuously strive to improve our services.

Milna has always focused on our participants' needs in order to satisfy them. Our aim is to guide you in your experience as a traveler and not as just a simple tourist. We will push you to meet the locals and interact with them in order to ensure a total cultural immersion from your side.

Let’s keep it authentic and put “the link” back at the core of our activities.

“Link creation” is the key element of our project: Men are social beings. We believe that man is perfectible indefinitely as long as he continues to share. Therefore, we have founded our organization, aiming to create links between individuals. Links have many virtues, from maintaining peace to personal enrichment, today, links have become key to everyone’s balance.

We offer a “proactive immersion”, meaning a commitment that focuses on personal development by way of a trip experience. Milna allows you to live as a traveler rather than a tourist. Travelers flourish as they experience the cultural differences, while tourists may not learn the same. While tourists observe passively, travelers participate actively. It is by pushing you to meet and interact with the locals that we strive to unravel a country’s complexity. We wish for the traveler to imbibe various local habits and traditions. We aim at “cultural assimilation” for sake of the individual.

We guarantee you comfortable adaptation to foreign cultures. We are aware of the importance of supporting travelers through their phase of adaptation to different cultures. In the past, we have witnessed that individuals tend to get confused when they are not in a familiar place/environment. The issues faced by them often force individuals to adapt physically and morally. This can be a source of discomfort, which we anticipate. Moreover, issues arising from a culture shock (language, habits, lifestyle, etc), climatic changes, or hygiene (food, health) can affect a traveler’s experience. We are here to help! So, are you ready to dive into a new cultural pool?
