Adventure Ashram has given a grant of £68,000 to Odanadi, a grassroots charity in Mysore, Karnataka, India. The charity, Odanadi, rescues and rehabilitates children who have been affected by human trafficking and provides them with a safe place to live. The rescued boys are living in 3 small shacks on a piece of farmland on the outskirts of Mysore. Whilst the boys are grateful for a safe place to live, the shacks lack basic amenities. Founders of Odanadi, Stanly and Parashu, are determined to give the boys a better home, similar to their other Odanadi home situated nearby housing 65 rescued girls. Plans were drawn up and building work begun. Adventure Ashram Trustees visited the construction site of the boys’ home during their most recent trip to India, on motorcycle rally, Enduro India 2012. Overwhelmed by the success of Odanadi’s rehabilitation programme and the need for the boys’ home to be finished before the monsoon begins in May, a decision was made to give a grant to complete the work. Adventure Ashram’s work is not possible without the generous support of Enduro India and Karma Enduro Adventurers. Thank you for making the lives of these boys so much better.

This year, as part of Adventure Ashram’s relocation project, 18 families committed to leaving their homes in the forest. The project run by Centre of Wildlife Studies (CWS), has enabled the families to settle in new homes on land they own located on the outskirts of the forest. This move has made access to education and healthcare possible. Relocation of this kind can be a sensitive and slow process and it is Adventure Ashram’s grant of £250,000 which has helped ensure success for Dr. Ullas Karanth and his CWS team.
