India

October 2017 – Fully Booked  /  12th – 20th January  2019  – Places Available

Since 2013, we have been supporting this great little charity and over that time the teams on our trips have help fund the building of the new orphanage, the purchase of a jeep and a scooter, furniture and kitchen equipment and of course food and essential supplies.

This charity has seen such an massive transformation over the past three years from its humble beginnings and have fully deserved our support due to the joy the children give back to the people who have visited and return year after year.

To find out if this project is one to get involved in, just read the testimonials on the home page from people on past trips and decide for yourself.

You can probably notice familiar faces in all three of the teams as people re-book every year to return and if not back to this project, then on our other projects. Hopefully this is testiment to how good they really are and if you are still not sure , check out our Facebook page which shows all the previous events and make your own mind up.

This is not all about the children, we know how to deliver events which provide unique memories for the team to experience more than what they would on a standard holiday along with that “feel good” factor of making a difference, a difference you can see for yourself.

SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS TEAMS

 A truly unique indian adventure into the real India which apart from experiencing rural Indian living, the amazing home cooked cuisine and of course some of the most friendly children you will ever met, you will also get experience an overnight train journey to the beautiful beaches of Pondicherry.

If history is anything to go by, after an amazing “bucket shower” the nights involve sitting on the roof of the house listening to the animals and enjoying a few kingfishers! (that’s the beer not the bird!)

A place on the next event will be a minimum donation of £1700. This includes return flights to Hyderabad, all India transfers, accommodation, breakfast and evening meals and group travel insurance and Visa costs. The team run a kitty which is about £2.50 a day to cover drinks and lunch which is more than enough.

A £200 non-refundable deposit secures your place on the team then we require a further £700 eight months before trip with the remaining £800 eight weeks before departure.

We also encourage you to collect clothes, soap, pens, stationary and sports equipment (cricket bats, footballs etc) from friends to take with you to hand out yourself and should you or your family and friends wish to purchase something for the orphanage then being that they get through nearly 400kg of rice per month, a 25kg bag of rice at £15 is what would be good.

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN THE TEAM FOR 2019, CONTACT US NOW AS WE DO GET A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTING TO RETURN.
