Build and Trek 2017
Two groups flew to Nepal having raised a staggering £235,000 for investment in two schools in the foothills of the Himalayas. These pioneers took up the challenge and worked night and day to raise the required funds to build new classrooms in the two schools that desperately needed our help. Our NGO, the Nepal Youth Foundation steered their way through the various committees in Nepal that were to be consulted and authorised the two projects. The volunteers worked tirelessly at the school for 4 days, and enjoyed the hospitality of a secure, tented camp and typical Nepali food, before heading for five days the mountains to see some of the highest peaks at sunrise. Subsequently a number of the team brought friends and families out a year later for the official opening ceremony.
