Indo Asia strives towards developing sustainable community programmes that are viable in the long term and aid in rejuvenating the local economy through practices that are environmentally responsible. We promote several “green” activities and programmes that are executed with aid and participation of our international partners as well. We encourage our international partners to donate part of the profits raised from their operations in India for the betterment of the underprivileged in the areas visited by their clients. Our endeavor is to make a positive contribution for the underprivileged and the environment by supporting a wide range of socio-economic, educational, health and eco-friendly initiatives. Our goal is to infuse measurable and sustainable practices throughout the organization with the participation of employees, customers, business partners and other stakeholders. In recognition of our efforts we have been nominated by the Ministry of Tourism, India for the best sustainable itinerary and have also won the National Tourism Award for Best Innovative Project by promoting innovative sustainable programmes.

Why Cycling Tours?
Coorg provides a perfect environment required for cycling – spectacular landscapes, a mixed terrain, good roads and vast opportunities to meet locals in villages while seeing the place slowly. It also helps the locals in small villages by converting their houses into home stays on the itinerary of cycling tour.
Responsible Tourism & Innovative Tourism
The idea of tourists seeking to get engaged in responsible tourism activities while on the move has shown a tremendous growth in tourism business. Creating an environment for locals helps them to sustain their livelihood. Nothing can beat the satisfaction earned while helping a community. Today’s traveler is more concerned about his society and wants to give back a fair share of his or her earning. This can be done in many ways -from helping the community to building schools, medical centers, extending help to animals or associating with conservation projects – there is something for everyone. More so, there is tremendous learning with this.
Undoubtedly, innovation is one of the longest standing business mantras – a key that unlocks growth. Innovative tourism usually involves a series of small steps that lead to incremental growth, of which the most common outcome is new product development. Embracing this thought, we design our 15-day Rajasthan relief adventure to create meaningful interactions between the travelers and local residents. We organize Medical Camps in the remote villages of Rajasthan, in consultation with the local administrative body. On an average we set up one such camp every alternate day. The information about a forthcoming Medical Camp is given in advance to all the residents of all the villages within a 10 km radius, thereby ensuring maximum participation.
Action For Autism (AFA)
AFA is involved in a wide range of services that employ people with autism and their families. These include advocacy, research, training, education, awareness, and resource provision. The Aadhar Vocational Centre at AFA is a production-oriented sheltered workplace where young adults with autism utilize their previous training for work, enhancing their independence, self-reliance, and confidence. The products made at Aadhar are sold through direct sale to consumers, institutions and exhibitions. The entire revenue generated from the sale of these products are ploughed back into purchasing raw materials for fresh production and paying a stipend to the young adults who work there. Aadhar- the first of its kind in India is an important step towards enabling individuals with autism lead a life of dignity that is meaningful and fulfilling.
The Purkal Youth Development Society
They aim to help this rural community access quality education. They achieve this through mentoring, along with attention to nutrition and healthcare. The faculty is made available exclusively to the poorest. Effective delivery of education is focussed on the girl child and they use enjoyable and meaningful ways. The establishment also ensures that the community at large is sensitive to the development needs of the children. The belief is that if bright youth in this rural community were supported in this manner, they would instill newfound hope and become agents of change and catalyze other youth and bring about transformation through demonstration.
It is our endeavour to make a positive contribution for the underprivileged and the environment by supporting a wide range of socio-economic, educational, health and eco- friendly initiatives. We are also in the process of making our offices & hotels completely “Green”. Our employees actively drive these community projects. As a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, to address these societal needs, our philanthropic outreach programs have been extremely successful.
Our aim is to take this new beginning to greater heights. Our goal this year is to increase the number of projects & the number of responsible travelers to 500. We are very convinced that in years to come this segment of responsible travelers will increase exponentially.
