No Roads Expeditions Foundation (NREF) is a charity that has been operating since 2014.
We approach our work by improving the lives of disadvantaged people in Papua New Guinea, Myanmar and Indonesia, through building community capacity. Helping individuals and communities to become self-sufficient is fundamental to our service delivery. Assistance is of no long-term value unless it can empower communities to become independently sustainable.
We specialise in remote and rural areas, where other organisations cannot and/or do not wish to service, due to the remoteness of the area. Our expertise in trekking and working in difficult terrain, has allowed us to service over 270 kilometres of isolated area and support over 34,500 people in health, education and infrastructure projects. The combined expertise of the Board notes over 64 years of trekking experience and the completion of approximately 155 expeditions.
