GGIM's view about upcoming activity
In the backdrop of pandemic situation, the perspective of almost every aspect of life has changed.. same applies to outdoor activities like trekking and hiking. GGIM's ANU is one of the most unique and innovative activities conducted in Pune and Mumbai. The reason of ANU's success is nothing but the ardent support by all the parents. We as institute also look at this activity very differently.. We believe that through ANU we positively inculcate the Adventure culture in kids and youth.
Due to the Covid19 restriction we had to change the approach of ANU for past few months and we are really thankful to all of you who encouraged us by getting involved in the same with same energy and enthusiasm. In spite of "New Normal" approach, our foundational belief that 'The Adventurous mind helps person to walk tall in every situation of life' have always been strong. So, now when things are slowly coming back on the track, we are also hitting the trails with all the necessary precautions yet with full enthusiasm..
Hope you all are excited to send your ward for this trek. We are also equally thrilled 😊
You have always been supportive to all the initiatives of GGIM and we are sure you will continue your support the same way.
A generous request to all : Kindly adhere to all the Covid 19 guidelines and cooperate with GGIM so that we can administer the activity properly and safely.
Looking forward to see you all on the Sunday.
You will get the trek related details shortly.
Head Operations, GGIM
