As a service to potential adventurers and explorers, here are links to some other organizations that can provide funding and assistance:
The Timmissartok Foundation (www.timmissartok.com) was founded in 2000 to assist individuals with adventurous projects that will take place in a foreign country. The foundation believes that one individual with a dream can be more powerful than a string of committees. Albert Einstein showed us that “imagination is more important than knowledge.” Ideas inspire people. The Timmissartok Foundation wants to invest in the people with the big dreams - “the hungry dogs” - who have a strong enough heart to make their dreams come true.
