Adventure World Travel Partners with
Purkal Stree Shakti

Adventure World Travel is proud to partner with Purkal Stree Shakti, a non-profit organisation based in Uttarakhand, India to bring you our beautiful, hand-crafted and sustainably made travel wallets. For the past 16 years, Purkal Stree Shakti has been empowering women through the dignity of work. This project helps to support the employment of over 170 local women, who are trained as artisans and taught skills that will serve them for years to come; the provision of a nutritious lunch daily to each woman; a daily bus service that allows the women to travel to and from work; responsible production and consumption using sustainable, locally-sourced materials. Supporting local communities and promoting sustainable tourism is at the heart of the Adventure World Travel ethos. We hope you enjoy your journey with us and thank you for your role in supporting this organisation.

Adventure World Travel Partners with
Wildlife SOS

Most travellers have no idea of the abuse that elephants must endure to be "tamed" for riding. They’re poached from the wild as babies, isolated from other elephants, then beaten until they’re so terrified of people they’ll do anything. This cruel practice is called phajaan, or “breaking of the spirit.” Hosted by TreadRight Ambassador Céline Cousteau, a group of dynamic storytellers went on a journey of education and compassion in incredible India. The central goal of their trip was to learn more about Wildlife SOS’s work to save elephants from negligent and abusive situations and bring more attention to the organization’s influential #RefuseToRide campaign.
