25 years in the outdoors

Trailblazers started out on a journey of discovery, learning and sharing in the summer of 1993. It was registered as a Private Limited company in 1994. The journey has since been one big learning curve full of surprises, fun and rewards with some disappointments as well.

Over these 25 years, we have designed and organised outdoor programmes for some of India’s prestigious academic and corporate institutions.

  • We designed YES (Young Earth Scientists) - a unique learning project, created for Grade 6 & 7 schools’ kids spanning 4 weekends.
  • Our work in the corporate world has brought us accolades. Our programme varies from team building programmes for HUNTSMAN to the brilliant project conceived and executed by Trailblazers for Proctor & Gamble entitled Programme on Environment Action and Conservation Education (PEACE) won the best corporate social project from the Bombay Chamber of Commerce, besides getting International recognition from the P&G Head quarters in Cincinnati, USA
  • We received stunning reviews for our report on people's perception about the environment, on behalf of International Public Relations Association (IPRA) New York, USA. The inputs of which have now been incorporated in global communications including UN, broadcasters and the advertising fraternity.
  • Our 12 films for Zee Television ‘Hum Zameen’ have been awarded the best television programme content & research award.
  • Trailblazers has also partnered with voluntary organisations such as share working for street children, Yusuf Meherally Center a rural NGO, Pride India and many more.

And our story is just beginning...

In the past 24 years we have primarily been working with students, teachers and professors largely, but now we are now fast changing! With our brand new logo, brand colours, new office, new website, we are all set to explore unchartered continents and environments beyond Europe and the Indian Subcontinent to Africa, South America, USA, New Zealand, South East Asia, China and Japan, Eastern Europe. We are increasingly looking at sharing our vast experience and extending our services to interest specific groups like hobbyists, wildlifers, photographers, free individual travelers from all around the world, curating special expeditions and travel programmes which will be a combination of all the right emotions and feelings.
