Helping people in India with Basti Ram

DofE Approved Activity Provider & UK charity BASTI RAM aims to give poor communities in India the opportunity to learn skills which help them to build their own brighter future. In India we run projects in day nurseries, primary schools, orphanages, with disabled children and with street children. We are offering DofE participants the unique opportunity to travel to Rajasthan and spend time teaching the children who attend our projects.

Accompanied by our experienced DofE assessor, participants will teach English using a range of interactive methods, learn Hindi, Indian cookery and henna art, watch cultural shows, visit temples and palaces, undertake stunning treks of the region on foot and horseback and/or desert camel expedition. These experiences are designed to challenge participants in mind and body, what they take from this can be life changing. Our residentials are fully supported, beginning with a pre-departure team building weekend in the UK to raise cultural awareness.

Fundraising advice and support is offered throughout. We take safety very seriously and all our residentials conform to the British Standard in Expedition Leadership (BS8848). Up to 10% discount for those booking 4 months in advance.
