Presidents Message
Dear Venturers,

We enter the thirty first year of our Endeavour in the field of Outdoor Education with pride of accomplishment. Although acknowledgement at the national level is as yet unattained, general awareness is much in evidence. Action oriented outdoor experience has assisted in raising awareness of the younger generation to the vital place of the natural environment in our lives. Through the young people, this will certainly pass on to the older generation in contact with them. Better to understand so much that is talked about climate change and human generated degradation of the environment in which we live.

The foundation is dedicated to provide safe opportunities to discover and equip themselves with hands-on-experience of outdoor living and serve as true friends of the Earth. As they grow they will take on the responsibilities of protecting and preserving Mother Nature and her wonderful web of life that surrounds us all.

We in the foundation will continue to serve our venturers who will lead us eventually towards a better future for themselves and the next generation to come. Have the life moulding adventure that you deserve and may the new year serve you with gladness.

Islamabad
January 2011.
