This September I will be embarking on a 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp, at 5,380m, with my team at Durham University to raise money for the charity, Hope for Children!
This international charity helps to improve the lives of thousands of vulnerable children through education, healthcare and family empowerment programmes across Africa and Asia. Having previously volunteered in the informal settlement of Khaylitsha on a Girls Empowerment Programme, the vast extent of inequality and lack of education services for young girls that I witnessed really shocked me. Hope for Children appealed to me because, in addition to offering sustainable development guidance, education and healthcare to vulnerable children, they aim to provide support and knowledge to vulnerable young girls surrounding sexual health, abuse, career guidance and many other life skills.
Any donations, however small, would be greatly appreciated.
All of donations will go directly to the charity.
Thank you in advance!
