Come this November I will be setting off upon a 11 day trek up Mt Everest Base Camp, for a cause that is very dear to me.

 

During my travels last year I had a list of places as long as my arm that I wanted to visit and experience, Nepal certainly wasn't on this list. Yet, somehow it felt right to make a stop there before coming back home, to help myself see and hear the stories of growing up in an orphanage. The reception I was to receive during my stay could never have been expected, more so how happy the children within this orphanage were considering they had absolutely nothing but the basic necessities - food, clothes, shelter and something that many take for granted, education.

For me it's heartbreaking to have heard the stories of how these children first came to the orphanage, and that there are still many suffering as a result of parent neglegence, violence and poverty. I want to help this orphange expand, and build upon its long term dream of one day moving into a house that can accommodate more than the 20 it can facilitate today. All children should be given an equal chance of making their dreams come true. I hope that by me tackling this trek upon Mt Everest that I can gain enough support to help lay down the foundations where under priviliged children have a higher chance where they can have a roof over their head, and with people they can call family.

 

Please provide your support in any form or sum you can. I hope that this modest target can be a start of not just saving a few lives, but help give future generations a fighting chance.
