DoTheDifferent is the brainchild of IIM-B Alumna Gauri Jayaram. While her experience in the travel industry spans over 25 years in varied profiles with some of the world’s most famous travel brands, it was her role as a mother of two teenagers, that prompted her to develop the signature DoTheDifferent Young Adult Internships & Leadership Expeditions in 2017. Since then the company has operated trips in South Africa, India, Tanzania, Nepal and introduced many more compelling programs to many more countries.
Designed to introduce 13 to 19 year olds to varied topics and subjects such as environment, wildlife, culinary arts, photography as well as in personal development, leadership etc. that are best experienced and learnt outside conventional classrooms, the trips deliver the philosophy of ‘Travel is the Greatest Education’, while giving teenagers ‘hand on exposure’ and the chance to experiment with subjects through work that is appropriate at their physical, emotional and intellectual level, opening doors to the incredible possibilities their future can offer.
