In today’s busy and hectic corporate life style, we only have weekends to unwind, and that’s why we generally spend our time in home along with family members.

But in past few years, the trend has been changing and it has been observed that office goers and youth wants to travels and experience new places especially over the weekend. An affordable price and an attractive itinerary is the key to weekend travel business. These short excursions are a hit among the young professionals throughout the year.

By taking this trend forward, we came up with a unique idea to start a travel related venture but with a difference. The difference lies in our Social Initiative “Unnati”. The short-trip packages are custom-made for travelers so that their trip is hassle-free. Weekend Gypsy Adventure Trips arranges for end-to-end services covering transport, accommodation, food and sight-seeing.

We want our tourists on a particular weekend based Trips packages to not only focus on Adventure trips but also experience a service with a difference.

That’s why we want go for the statement:

Visit Places, Explore yourself

Social Connect

This project may be helpful for:

Remote villagers - To enhance their livelihood through this trip model

Opportunity for villagers or artists or craftsmen as Weekend Gypsy Adventure Trips helps them to provide basic skill enhancement training and vocational training classes like Camp Guide Training, Exploration Training, Cultural Programme, Packaging Training etc

Public- Private partnership opportunity through various government tourism schemes like Veer Chander Singh Gadwali Paryatan Yojna in Uttrakhand and Incredible India initiative throughout the country…

In this regards we also plan to launch our social platform “Unnati” in collaboration with “Weekendgypsy Adventure Trips” banner. The detail for Unnati follows ahead…

Background information

We have launched a unique concept of empowering the village workforce through our venture “Unnati”, as we want village to be treated as equals so much so that if a woman rises to the top of her field it should be a commonplace occurrence that draws nothing more than a raised eyebrow at the gender. This can only happen if there is a channelized route.

We at “Unnati” want to provide a platform which empowers village to face the present challenges by providing tools and techniques that help to eliminate individual stress. “Unnati” encourages village to find practical solutions to their challenges so that each one becomes self-dependent in their own right.

Since India today is at the crossover of a exemplar change in its growth and positioning in the world; “Unnati” wants to capture this opportunity. We believe in thinking big and making substantial contribution in education, infrastructure, industry, financial services or equality of both genders. 

Action Plan

To empower and educate the village by providing a platform to convert their art and culture skills into a Home based business. For example: Burans (An Uttrakhandi herbal flower) juice packaging, elite crafts exhibition etc.

Empower their children by providing them all possible help for education

Design and implement a Web based Infotech model at the village hubs to connect them with global marketplace – Showcase their products as “Weekendgypsy Store” or some other Brand name on Global market place like Snapdeal, Jabong etc. (All these have a special section for ethnic products)
