Inspirational Charity Trek in Nepal
November 2007 2nd to 13th
Organised by Dipendra K.C. (Travel De Society) & Kira Kay (HandswithHands)
Imagine two weeks of inspirational experiences in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal! Combining 12 days of trekking through the mystical magic ‘on top of the world’ and visiting some unique charitable projects in action in Nepal.
This idea has emerged from my various trips to Nepal and the growing number of people who have expressed interest in travelling to Nepal and who wish to have a direct experience of the various projects that I have been involved in the past several years and perhaps find their own way of contributing.
Partially Self-Sustaining Children’s homes
Microfinance and literacy programs with women in rural areas
Hospital and medical projects
Schools and general education
This journey gives you the opportunity to really see some of the best of Nepal – its awesome and majestical mountains and its gentle and heart-full country-people.
This particular trek also offers you the opportunity to give directly to a project that is helping Nepalese people help themselves. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world in economic terms, yet rich in culture and nature.
Outline of the trip to Nepal and the trek itself:
I do realise that some of you have work commitments that may influence how much time you have for this trip, so I highlight the Trek specifically and can give more details on request for additional activities if you have a longer time to be in Nepal and experience her many riches.
