About the job
About Trekker Warrior Foundation

Trekker Warrior Foundation is a not-for-profit organization run by a young community of environmental conservationists – most of whom are trekkers and mountaineers. We love natural habitats – especially in and around the mountains – and want to preserve their serenity and beauty. We started our journey in 2019 with a simple idea – combine trekking with social good in the mountains and give back to nature while we enjoy being with it. Along the way, we also began working on developing a community (via social media platforms) and creating programs to drive an intention to act in stakeholders. We are a bit different from many organizations working towards similar causes because:

We thoughtfully focus on both action and awareness at the same time. We don’t just tell what to do, first, we do and then we tell others what/how to do it. We have consciously chosen to be action-first.
We are 100% community-run, we recruit highly committed people as ‘Community Owners’, then we train them and support them to help restore the environment in their local communities; we work in the background, as their support team, managing their marketing, logistics, fundraising, and further education.
We are 100% digitally built and managed, which has allowed us to attract a lot of young people to join us and scale significantly (while applying learnings from one place to another). We use social media for very appropriate reasons.

The founding team has four co-founders, all of whom are certified mountaineers, and have been trekking the Himalayas for over a decade. We also have many committed volunteer members and advisors from organizations such as WWF, CEE, etc.
