For those who contact us to show interest we will share the detailed trek itinerary.
All the intrepid individuals on this memorable journey will be aiming to raise £750 of sponsorship money before November 2023. That may sound like a lot, but we've made it as easy as possible to achieve that goal: you can utilise Facebook's new fundraising tool, and the trustees are here to help you every step of the way. 95% of past trekkers have smashed their target! The funds raised will be used for building a water storage tank to supply water year-round to Bugam village. Bugam is a small settlement in Nepal’s Sindhupalchowk district and was completely devastated by the earthquake in 2015. One of the key issues for the village today is a shortage of drinking water during the dry season, which can last up to three months. This is the problem we will be aiming to rectify.SINDHULPALCHOWK TREK - PAYMENT PLAN**

All our projects are carried out in partnership with thoroughly-vetted local NGOs and all the work we do is in line with our overall mission and values).
