Our India Programmes

Our India Programmes (formely iDiscover India) were created in 2006, when twenty three instructors and senior staff went on the two centre programme, The Himalayan Adventure. Andrew knew that India was a magical place which would make a positive change to the lives of young people but he wanted to test and risk assess every aspect of the trip before he offered it to school and youth groups.

The result is a well rehearsed programme, supported by a management team based in Delhi and strong and reliable local partners who are committed to operate to and be judged by UK standards of safety management.
