Risk is the Heart of all Education

Volunteer Program for Schools
There is a joy in discovering the mountains, going on adventures, explore local cultures and participate in volunteer programs all over the Himalayas. We have organised School Expeditions and Volunteer Programs since 2007.
Back in 2007 we asked ourselves – do we care about our lifestyle and the choices we have made, do we care about the environment that we live in, do we care about conserving what we have. We knew that these were important things close to our heart and we cared for them. So we did something about it.
We knew we wanted to work at the grass roots or support friends we know who work working at the grassroots to make positive social change. Working with young adults in their formative years has been a tremendous learning experience even for us and the last 15 years has been truly amazing.
Over the last few years we have incorporated many Global Goals (www.globalgoals.org) agendas in our offerings and built custom programs around these.
Every year we work with quite a few groups of school students from India and abroad.
All our programs operate on a simple philosophy: ” what you love and understand you won’t destroy.” and the focus is on introducing young adults to various adventures, Cultures and creating a bond with nature and outdoors.
Some of the Schools we have worked with in India and Abroad are:
