10 Years of the Wild Frontiers Foundation

3rd June 2019


This year marks the10th anniversary of the Wild Frontiers Foundation!

Supporting communities that we have the privilege to visit has always been at the heart of the Wild Frontiers ethos. Since the company’s humble beginnings in 2002, we have contributed to projects in places we've travelled, from landmine clearance in Afghanistan to providing educational materials to rural schools in India. Taking that commitment a step further, in 2009 we established our own charitable foundation, which has allowed us to raise funds to develop our own initiatives and support grassroots projects through our inspiring charity partners.

We are going to celebrate in style later in the year at our annual Evening of Adventure fundraiser, which will support The Pink City Rickshaw Company - a fantastic local enterprise in Jaipur, India, that is helping women from low-income backgrounds, to not only earn a living but invest in their future.

In the meantime, here's a snapshot of our work over the past decade and the projects that have benefited from over £100,000 raised, none of which would have been possible without the support of Wild Frontiers' clients. So thank you!
