Join Caritas Australia on their Nepal Trekking in Solidarity

With stunning Himalayan views, high passes, traditional teahouses, tiny hamlets, prayer flags and hot springs, the Annapurna region is among the best trekking destinations in the world. And as part of the Caritas Australia’s Nepal Trekking in Solidarity, you will experience it all.

Beginning in Kathmandu, your eyes will be open to the devastation that the April 2015 earthquake caused this country. Though confronting, it as an experience you will never forget. You will discover the history and culture of Nepal’s colourful and chaotic capital city and how the locals are striving every day to rebuild their homes and lives.

You’ll then escape the city limits, trekking through terraced rice fields, across clear mountain rivers and into dense rhododendron forest, following narrow paths between some of the highest mountains in the world.

As part of this adventure, you will spend 6 days trekking the Annapurna region, and spend your nights in traditional tea lodges in verdant valleys and at the foot of spectacular mountains.

Throughout your challenge, you will visit our Caritas Australia-supported projects and learn firsthand how your fundraising supports resilient Nepalese communities to create lasting change in their own lives.

Funds raised in this adventure will help these and other projects in Nepal, such as cooperatives, farm field schools and earthquake recovery. You will help empower marginalised communities in Nepal to manage their own development and become self-sufficient.

Almost two years after Nepal’s devastating earthquake, the community still struggles to rebuild their lives.

Join Caritas Australia and their Nepal Trekking in Solidarity and you will help several projects in Nepal, such as cooperatives, farmer field schools and earthquake recovery.

What your donations can do:

$100 could provide a group of 15 female farmers with vegetable seeds, so they can grow sustainable food
$300 could provide a three-day training course for 10-15 people, so they can learn to raise and sell fish
$400 could provide access to ‘Farmer Field School’, so a farmer can learn new techniques and organic farming practices
$1000 could provide training for one student on Farmer Field School at masters level in a university for 21 weeks.

Every step you take will help Caritas end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.
