Adventure Ashram is a charity founded and supported by adventurers.
We actively support and make grants to help local grassroots organisations doing fantastic work. Our focus is on anti-trafficking, accessible education and healthcare projects. We are currently supporting projects at several locations in India as well as the Thai-Myanmar border.
So far we've raised over £1 million to support survivors of human trafficking and provide educational opportunities.
At Adventure Ashram, we each play a part in the monitoring and evaluating of the work we fund. Visits to our projects are made throughout the year when our staff and trustees lend a hand to the projects we support. Our intention is that Adventure Ashram's contribution should be life changing so we measure the impact on the lives of the individuals and communities that we have helped.
Adventure Ashram was founded and registered as a UK charity in 2007. We firmly believe in the spirit of adventure and its value in bringing about positive change in the world. The word 'Ashram' part derives from the ancient Sanskrit word for protection. Our desire is to help others access freedom and enable those we support to make their own choices about their futures. We exist to bring about positive change.
Adventure Ashram is grateful to everyone involved in its formation and development. We are now in an established position to continue our work with other adventurers and adventure travel companies who build relationships with the communities who welcome them on their travels.
Our supporters make regular trips to the incredible Himalayas, this image was taken in Spiti Valley where we are funding the Building a ‘Solar Eco’ Community Centre in Kaza. Click here for more details of this incredible project.
