Asia gives us so much – we cannot begin to recount the occasions that our clients have said that Asia has literally allowed them to regain their sanity - and touches their soul.
Shree Kumrung Baraha School in Nepal
The Explorations Company through its charitable foundation Philanthropy Plus, is funding a lunchtime tiffin programme for pupils at the Shree Kumrung Baraha School in Nepal.
Shree Kumrung Baraha is located in a stunning but remote spot on the terraces of Tikhyan, under the dramatically looming slopes of Annapurna South. The school’s headmaster, Ram Poudel, oversees the education of around 60 primary age pupils.
In our constant endeavour to engage with and support genuine organisations, in India the Explorations Company through its charitable foundation Philanthropy Plus, is supporting SEWA, a trade union that supports and empowers self-employed women from underprivileged sections.
SEWA is the Self-Employed Women’s Association, an accomplished trade union established in 1972 by Ela Bhatt which has been working to organise, support and empower self-employed women workers from underprivileged sections.
TOFT Tigers, (which stands for Tour Operators for Tigers), is an organisation which aims to use sustainable and responsible travel to put funds back into the largely-underfunded conservation of the tiger. They recognise that wildlife tourism, if managed well, can be the vital factor that saves wildlife and wild habitats.
