OUTLIFE- Transforming learning and action into Joy!8 years ago Nikita Kiran
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
It has been 20 years since the notorious idiom debacle. His hard work has landed him a reputable job but not the perks of success. Perhaps the adage shall stick. His engagement at work and home affairs remain dismal. Jack is what he was before-dull. But he wishes to turn the idiom around. He now has a frantic belief that there is a need for him to break away from the avalanche of monotony.
For Jack and others who resonate there is a chance to hit the trail running for the experience of life in its inherent meaning. ‘Outlife’ Centre for Learning and Development is an ‘Adventure Travel Marketplace and Behavioral Training’ Company that helps businesses, communities, individuals and other institutions across the nation break their humdrum and foster self actualization. They provide them the opportunity for participation in adventure based, outbound and experiential learning activities. Their motto raps their vision perfectly and exudes everything an adventurer hopes for- “Learning, Action, Joy”.

They help you overcome daunting hindrances by providing experiences that inculcate sustainable habits with one motive- to transform people into better individuals, high performing team players and inspiring leaders.
Their target customers are middle and high income group individuals, corporations, schools and other communities. Be it a corporate group wanting to de-stress its team from constant workload and instilling within them a rejuvenated employee engagement, or a school group who has come to teach children about outdoor survival, or a family who wishes to enjoy off the page, serene picturesque landscape on weekends, Outlife caters all.
With a plethora of information on any and almost everything online, there is still a lack of options to find good adventure and travel experiences. Outlife solves this problem by bringing up a travel portal where people can just sign up and get backpacking for their desired adventure destination.
Like all good solutions, this comes from a space of passionate prepossesion, personal history and first-hand experience in the domain. Founded in January 2013 by a Founder Graduate of the Founders Institute – Hyderabad Chapter, a Startup Leadership Program fellow and Founder and Director of the Great Hyderabad Adventures Club (GHAC), Mr. Diyanat Ali, developed an interest for adventure whilst serving the nation as a member of the NCC. Post leaving NCC, he decided to take his love for adventure a notch up and started GHAC, a not for profit company that promotes adventure to spawn a healthy lifestyle among the Indian youth. This went on to become the largest and most active adventure club in India earning him the prestigious accolade of holding the Limca Book of Records for changing the adventure scene in the city of Hyderabad. But with the colossal number of subscriptions it was becoming difficult to provide high value adventure programmes and events under a volunteer based organisation. The cross subsidization through Outlife provides the means to fund the operational costs of GHAC while keeping the indomitable spirit of adventure alive.
The ulterior motive behind Outlife is to offer a therapeutic environment to facilitate a growth process in the individual aimed at the zenith of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs- Self Actualization. Outlife provides a medium for the pursuit of happiness. The generalized blueprint of conditions, places and events interact with human psychology to engender the desired personal growth and healing and lets the odyssey to self exploration run its course seamlessly underscoring the importance of adventure in our lives.
