In October 2015, 12 participants embarked on a once in a lifetime experience of trekking to Everest Base Camp.
The participants raised a huge $91,853.72. These funds will support two programs. The first of which is UNICEF’s Nutrition Program in SE Asia. This program aims to ensure children reach their full potential and grow up healthy, strong and alert. Alongside this participants had the choice to direct their funds to assist with the emergency response to the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in April.
Participant Penelope Saywell shared her experience “Individually we are small, but collectively we can make a big difference in the lives of others. What a pleasure to work with UNICEF, to advocate for those in need, and witness that change in action.”
