VIDEO CLIP BELOW IS FROM ONE OUR SUPPLIERS WHO HAS BEEN DOING WONDERFUL THINGS IN NEPAL. THIS IS THEIR STORY.. 

Nepal Relief Fund Project 
One year down the line, we are happy to announce that the Nepal Relief Project has been completed. The company worked with Abari a socially oriented research, design and construction firm based in Nepal to rebuild a classroom block at Saraswati Secondary School at Dhulikhel as a part of its CSR Project using the Nepal Relief Fund that was generously donated by our colleagues, partners and family to support the people affected by the devastating earthquake on April 25, 2015.
We journeyed with Abari every step of the way, from the bamboo truss for both classrooms being put up, to the lime plaster process to soling and concrete filling of the floor to bamboo cut pieces and preparatory work for metal brackets for the roof truss to classrooms rooftops being put up. It has been a journey of knowledge, understanding and has given us a deeper meaning to sustainability. The new classroom block is earthquake resistant.
The big day came on 26 February, 2017 when the classroom block was officially handed over to the school authorities in a ceremony at the School. The School children were treated to cake and a rare musical program where our Nepal Team members performed to entertain the children! The new classroom block keys were handed over by us to the principal of the School in presence of the Executive Committee Members of the School, Children, Abari and our team members. The inauguration ceremony ended with lunch, which was cooked on site – sustainability at its best.
Our aim at Distant Frontiers is to make travel a meaningful activity and experience in social, ecological and economic terms. We are convinced that our efforts here are reaping their rewards, for the natural environment and the people who live in it. And in doing all this, Distant Frontiers is making a vital contribution to ensuring a better travel product, a fairer tourist industry and a more sustainable world.
Thank you to all our friends who donated towards this cause.

BHUTAN AHS

We are excited to be able to support the AHS (Australian Himalayan Foundation and their work with their partner organisation RENEW. RENEW is dedicated to the empowerment of women and girls, AHF supports a flagship gender program in Bhutan, recognising that investing in the education of women and girls is fundamental to creating strong, stable families, communities and countries. 

The first stage of this program provides girls from some of the remotest disadvantaged corners of Bhutan (where children often walk up to 3 hours a day to reach school) with te access to an education by providing textbooks, school uniforms, school bags and lunch. 

The second phase of the program is a vocational training program that provides techinical training opportunities for young women. This project focuses on skills development and income generation for underprivileged women who endure economic hardship and have no social support in their communities.  Women are trained in the creation of traditional Bhutanese textile production, enterprise development and economic management. 

Together these projects form an integrated community development program that ensures just as many girls are attending school as boys and that those girls can go on to receive technical skills to provide long term livelihoods. This in turn is enabling these women and grils to become independent. 

We have a tour heading to Bhutan in early 2018.  For more information click here.
