Roadmonkey Adventure Philanthropy combines first-rate geographic travel with meaningful volunteer work. Roadmonkey expeditions are physically challenging, intellectually stimulating and, by completing meaningful volunteer projects that help communities and people in need, deeply gratifying. With “planned serendipity” as a guiding principle, Roadmonkey is designed for explorers on a journey, not tourists on a schedule. Through its collaborative relationship with Omprakash, Roadmonkey works to direct volunteers and fundraisers towards projects within the Omprakash network.
