Doyli to the Rescue:

Saving Baby Monkeys in the Amazon

Join 10-year-old Doyli as she sets out to rescue orphaned monkeys from her island home in the Peruvian Amazon. This book is part of an effort to highlight wildlife preservation efforts by kids around the globe. 



We are shaping future explorers who will transform the world through understanding and acceptance.

By creating opportunities for parents and children to explore the world together, we can:
– Strengthen the bond between parent and child through a shared love of travel.
– Encourage families to leave their comfort zone and embrace diverse cultures.
– Forge a more meaningful connection between our kids and the world.

Here at Travelnitch, we believe:
– The hard questions in life are best approached with curiosity.
– Diversity is essential to creating a richer society.
– Embracing the unknown is key to learning resiliency.
– Change begins at home, but transformation takes place on the road.


By making travel accessible to all families, we have the power to change how kids see the world. We believe travel is an experiential education. And education is a tool that can foster empathy, build confidence, and support a more tolerant global perspective. These things benefit us all.

With more than a decade of experience, Amanda has owned and operated several successful startups. Her passion for travel can be seen most recently in publications like The Ascent, Writers on the Run, and Go World Travel. As an avid traveler and mom of two, she believes in raising globally-minded kids who value diversity and embrace humanity.
