November 2020, Greater Outdoor Experiences
Aishwarya Gole; the 1st recipient of the pilot initiative to train as a Trek Lead.
Our Trek Lead sponsorship project aims to nurture the force of positivity in youth who aspire to excel in sports or outdoor activities and open up viable short and long-term employment pathways for the outdoor community.
This sponsorship is for Aishwarya’s training in Xtremetrekkers’ 3-month long Program – a combination of classroom and on-trail learnings about ecology, cultural history, first-aid, managing teams, and leadership skills. Aishwarya will co-lead 10 treks of varying technical difficulty under the mentorship of Prateek Khardekar; she’s already off to a good start in November with Dhak Bahiri and Vasota Camping treks in the Sahyadris (Western Ghats)! A big Thank you to Prateek & Xtremetrekkers (Trekking hosts). Happy Trails!
