TransIndus makes every effort to ensure our holidays have a positive environmental, social and economic impact on the local communities we visit. We support schools, wildlife conservation initiatives and village development projects across Asia, and favour the use of eco-friendly, responsible local hotels, lodges and guest houses along with sustainable adventure and activities.
In order to give back a little to the societies that host us and our clients, we like to support to smaller charities undertaking valuable work at a local level. To this end, we donate to the following initiatives, which we feel do some remarkable work.
Karunya Kindergarten, Colachel: After the devastating Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, with the aid of international donations the Lebenslicht Charitable Trust helped build a village school for orphaned children. TransIndus provided hot lunches for the pupils to make sure they got at least one nutritious meal a day. Our involvement has continued to the present time, and we are proud to report the school remains a happy, healthy community with lively children.
The Jaipur Virasat Foundation (JVF) is a charitable trust, set up in September 2002 to conserve Jaipur’s heritage, and brings together traditional creative arts and craft skills with modern market requirements to generate employment. We encourage our clients to visit JVF workshops as part of their tours, and donations from TransIndus travellers help to sustain the Foundation’s programme.
Guy’s Trust : TransIndus is proud to support this charity set up by our clients Vicky and Tony Joseph in memory of their son, Guy, who was tragically killed, aged 25, in a paragliding accident in Nepal. As over a million children in the country do not attend school regularly, Guy’s Trust has built two Early Childhood Development Centres in the impoverished Kaski region, close to Pokhara, where Guy lived.
New Hope for Cambodian Children (NHCC), Phnom Penh
This wonderful organization on the outskirts of the Cambodian capital cares for around 200 orphans and abandoned youngsters infected with HIV/AIDS. Supported by Bill and Hilary Clinton, the centre includes school rooms, a special medical centre and vegetable gardens, which we encourage any of our clients who are interested in the project’s invaluable work to visit as part of their tour. Workers at the centre are always happy to show visitors around and introduce them to the delightful residents. They also run a well-managed child sponsorship scheme for those considering a longer, lasting commitment to the centre’s programme. Newhopeforcambodianchildren.com
