Encouraging adventurers to go the extra mile and be reporters of truth in the world.

Welcome to The Ted Simon Foundation

We believe that all adventure travellers have it in them to be reporters of truth in the world, and we want to encourage them to broadcast that truth by whatever means may be appropriate.

The words we live by are Exploration, Comprehension and Communication.

Our ultimate aim is to promote understanding, reduce tension and to favour the chances of peace between our many cultures.

The Ted Simon Foundation

Travellers survive and flourish by adapting to the world around them. As a result they learn a particular truth about the societies they move through. What they learn can be of great value in explaining the peculiarities of foreign cultures and in reaffirming what is common to all of us; generosity to strangers and a desire to live in peace.

The purpose of the Foundation is to bring those truths to the general public, to counter the generalisations of the media, and to remind us all that life is lived family by family, mile by mile, regardless of the great issues which may be dominating the news.

The Ted Simon Foundation is currently supporting a total of 132 Jupiter's Travellers from over 20 countries. They are adventurers selected from the many applications we receive for their potential to help the Foundation fulfil its purpose.

To those who are setting out we offer advice, contacts and, where possible, practical help. To those on the road or returning, we offer assistance in transforming the raw material of adventure into something stunning for the rest of the world to appreciate. We're never timid in our assessments and we always strive for high standards.
