The Wild Frontiers Foundation
In order to facilitate an enduring support structure for the communities we visit, and to show a commitment to these values, in January 2009 Wild Frontiers set up a charitable foundation through which we can channel funds to both existing NGOs and our own development projects. In addition to organising ethically sensitive tours, having our own charitable foundation allows us to raise money – through the cost of our tours, charity trips and fund raising events – which can then be used to fund various projects in education, sanitation, reforestations and a number of other important issues facing developing communities. Wherever possible we are happy for our clients to visit these projects to see for themselves where and how this money is being spent. This is a very exciting development for us and something we hope in time will become a major part of our organisation.

K2 Charity Trek
Education in the remote northern region of Pakistan is haphazard at best. Government funding is often unforthcoming; hamlets, villages and entire regions can have little in the way of educational facilities leaving thousands of children unable to gain even a basic level of tuition. Thankfully there are a number of excellent international charities who bridge the gap by building schools and financing their overheads, and we aim to help them.
As an inaugural fund raising trip, in September 2010, we went back to our roots and travelled deep into Northern Pakistan to trek to K2.
Wild Frontiers founder Jonny Bealby lead, what was an amazing charity trek that raised inexcess of £10,000. All funds raised from the trek will go towards a school project in the small Northern Pakistan village of Baleygon, in the Hushey Val...ley, through which the Indus River passes, but little else. As a result of its isolation it is often overlooked and were it not for the exceptional work of Mr Hussain Abdal, the principal and sole teacher, the 73 primary students would have no school at all. Among other things we hope to raise enough money to build another classroom, add desks and employ another teacher.
With the building work on the new classrooms now in full swing, the primary focus of the Wild Frontiers Foundation in 2012 is to continue our work to furnish and, supplying educational materials and uniforms for the Baleygon School. To help raise these funds we have decided to again run our 2012 K2 trip as a charity trek.
