    Adventures Beyond Barriers

Adventures beyond Barriers Foundation is a Not for Profit organisation, to promote adventure sports for persons with Disability. The underlying philosophy is that “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” We aim to engage able bodied individuals together with Persons with Disabilities, in adventure sports and allied activities in a safe and sustainable way and to bring them both together; in a journey such that they help and learn from each other.
We hope to achieve this by creating appropriate conditions to establish interpersonal contact, and by enabling communication with one another, with a view to understand and appreciate different points of views involving each other’s ways of life. As a result of this new appreciation and understanding, issues of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination between the groups should reduce and lead to long term social transformation. This will also help get persons with disability more visibility, which helps create awareness towards inclusion and accessibility.
We believe that sports can transform lives. Cycling is convenient, healthy, low stress, environment friendly, sociable and community-friendly sport that any one can take up easily. But what if that anyone is a visually impaired person?
We want visually impaired persons to experience the freedom of cycling and the joy of meeting new people. A tandem cycle will enable us to organise cycling tours and expeditions with able bodied pilots and Persons with Disabilities together.
