As part of Climb for Kids you will trek to the gateway to the highest peak in the world—Mount Everest.
On this adventure, you will first discover the sensory overload that is Kathmandu—Nepal’s bustling capital city. Fill your senses with the sights, sounds and smells of a city simultaneously hurtling towards modernity while stoically maintaining its traditional religious and cultural uniqueness.
Moving beyond city limits, you will then trek for 11 days through alpine meadow, into birch and rhododendron forest, across rivers and along narrow mule tracks between snow-capped mountains. Together with a team of local guides and Sherpas, you will discover the majesty and mysticism of the Himalayas by day, and fall asleep in traditional lodges and guesthouses in remote Nepalese villages at night.
Imagine the sense of accomplishment of standing in the shadow to Mount Everest knowing every step you’ve taken has raised vital funds to give children the best possible start in life.
Your fundraising could help children and families with the following;
• $88 could provide 20 storybooks to give children a chance to read and learn with storybooks in their local language
• $145 could provide 10,000 anti-anaemic tablets to give expectant mother the supplements they need for a healthy pregnancy
• $536 could provide two early childhood development kits containing puzzles, toys and art materials to help children get their vital introduction to learning
Together, we can help improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
