In­trepid brings iss ues ‘In Fo­cus’

Travel Bulletin - - SMALL GROUP TOURING -

Travel wouldn’t be as in­tox­i­cat­ing if it weren’t for the sto­ries it shares and creates. In­trepid Ur­ban Ad­ven­tures has launched a se­ries of ‘In Fo­cus’ tours de­signed to of­fer in­sight into lo­cal is­sues and the ef­forts to re­solve them. Rather than hear­ing a story about a so­cial pro­ject from a third-party guide, trav­ellers will wit­ness it and see first­hand how a par­tic­u­lar is­sue is be­ing ad­dressed. The ‘In Fo­cus’ tours range from a Kolkata So­lar Slum Tour, which takes trav­ellers be­hind the scenes of Pol­li­nate En­ergy, a so­cial en­ter­prise bring­ing so­lar light to In­dia’s ur­ban poor, to a Kath­mandu cook­ing class, pre­sented in part­ner­ship with Seven Women, a so­cial en­ter­prise that em­pow­ers marginalised women in Nepal through lit­er­acy classes, skills train­ing, and in­come gen­er­a­tion pro­grams.
