The Quest of Rajasthan:
Our search for a new project to support.
Adventure Ashram is embarking on a most exciting quest. It is looking for a new charity to support, with a focus on improving health or education in Rajasthan. This is inspired by the launch of a very special new car rally in Rajasthan, organised by our corporate partner, Nomadic Knights entitled the “The Best Exotic Classic Car Rally” (click link for more details) the inaugural event is being held in February 2016. Before the trip, the adventurers will be be told of the vision and mission of the new charity and be given the opportunity to donate or raise money to support our new project in Rajasthan. During the trip a special visit to the charity will be planned giving adventurers the very first opportunity to see what a difference their support is making.
How will we find the charity?
Through the Adventure Ashram adventurers community, the quest will be shared through conversations, email and social media leading to email applications from charities that match the criteria set out below. Please share on your own twitter, facebook pages and other channels.
