Responsible Tourism for Charity in India

Tourism  for Charity is an altogether new concept in the field of responsible tourism where a tourist comes in to visit a place in India and during their they also contribute within their own capacity a little bit for the local community and this contribution from them comes through donations in cash or kind as per their own wishes. This is a unique way of traveling which was started by Faith and Anthony Harkham of Luxtrek Incs from Canmore in Canada and has been brought in India by Sanjay Saini of Escapade Adventures & Holidays Pvt. Ltd. with the help of department of tourism, Govt. of Uttarakhand.

With a very successful trial group operated in Oct. 2006, when the group of 12 generous responsible citizens from Canada brought in solar lights for village houses in mountains, books for school in a mountain village and also donated money for empowerment of local women. In all material worth US $ 10000 was distributed amongst the poor and needy people in three mountain villages over 2 days before the tourist left for an 8 days trek in higher Himalayan ranges to Kuari Pass. This made a difference to the life of more than  1000 mountain folks.

With the success of our trial group, we have decided to formally launch Responsible Charity tourism in our state of Uttarakhand with first commercial group to be operated in the month of April 2009.

Initially we intend to run the trips twice a year with a group strength of 15 – 20 people coming in to visit preplanned places and installing lights & donating material to local schools and organizations which help in empowering women and children, in some of the remote villages of the region. After completing their task over first two days they would be crossing over to their tour to experience India.

We hope to make a positive difference with our efforts in the socio economic standing of our people with a very positive support from all those who care for humanity.

One can choose from the tour itineraries that we suggest or can also opt for your own tour program. Right now we can organize responsible charity tourism in the states of Uttarakhand, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
