Trekking Everest Base Camp for a CAUSE! Raise funds for "Nepal Children's Home" - A home for children in need. As you may know VIN has planned to construct an orphanage home by 2013 to accommodate 50 + orphan, abandoned children. The project will cost VIN $505,880 (Rs.34,906,385)
VIN has been organizing Base Camp (EBC ABC) Charity Treks in an on going basis. We organize group trekking to Everest / Annapurna Base 4th and 18th of each month. We aim to raise at least $45,000 from these treks for our Nepal Children's Home" construction project. The construction will commence as soon as we have $110,000 raised.
Experiencing the challenge and thrill of the Everest / Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a must-do, once in a lifetime achievement. The trek up to the base of the highest mountain on Earth, and the even higher climb to the peak of Kalipattar (Everest) for the best view of the Himalayan peak, is an experience that will remain with you forever.
Volunteer's Initiative Nepal is seeking participants for the inaugural Everest Base Camp Fundraising Trek – people who wish to experience this breath taking 13 / 14 days trek, with the added objective of raising money for VIN's children's home dream project.
With every metre you climb, and every sky-touching mountain you pass, you will be raising crucial funds that allow VIN to empower marginalised communities, through various ongoing education, construction and awareness programs.
VIN is inviting individuals and/or small groups (7-10 people) to accept the challenge of raising $5000 US per group. Participants, either as a group or individually, could raise money in various ways:
You will be climbing 2564 meters from the Lukla airport to EBC. Kathmandu altitude 1355 meter (4504 ft), The altitude of the Lukla airport is 2800 Meter (9100 feet) and South Base Camp of Everest is at an altitude of 5364 metres (17598 ft).
With a fundraising goal in mind, the EBC Trek will be an adventure with an incentive far beyond the mere physical achievement of reaching Everest Base Camp. Every step and every day traveled will be making a critical difference to the work that VIN is currently undertaking, and planning for the future, in Nepal.
