With your generous help we aim to raise £8,463, matching the 8463m of Makalu, for SOS Children’s Villages International.
We are delighted to be continuing our long-running association with the charity SOS Children’s Villages. As with our previous mountaineering ventures we are aiming to raise funds to help the charity continue its Nepal based community projects, thereby hopefully leaving a lasting legacy of our time in this amazing country.
Underpinned by the generosity of our sponsors and many online followers our previous fundraising has delivered significant results: a new school building and sports equipment to Tashigaon School in the Makalu-Barun region as well as provision of long-term support to skills based learning and vocational training projects at the SOS Children’s Villages School ‘Sanothimi’ in Kathmandu.
This year our focus is on supporting the SOS Children’s Village Gandaki, Pokhara, where once again the emphasis will be on raising funds for community based projects. Current initiatives include schemes to improve levels of literacy amongst those who have missed out on education as well as delivery of safe learning environments for the children of the region, including those who have been orphaned or abandoned.We hope that you will agree that it is a worthy cause and one that you choose to support.
