Hike for Hope | Nepal | 17 - 22 Nov 2019

Registration Status: 
Open

It's Saturday. Classrooms in Sindhuli East are silent. Deep within the towering mountains, from a little remote village, comes the sound of joyful singing. A group of children dressed in school uniform are enthusiastically making their way through treacherous mountain roads to a small, white building.

For miles and miles around them, there is nothing but a clear blue sky and rocky roads. Giggling and laughing, they reach a community building located on a hill. It's time for World Vision's 'Reading Camp'!

In a community where education facilities are sorely lacking, World Vision has established reading camps to boost children's literacy skills. These reading camps are a safe haven for children whose lives and education came to a standstill when the earthquake struck in 2015 and destroyed more than 30,000 classrooms. Hidden away among the mountains, the people of Sindhuli East have had little access to the basic necessities that can help them recover from the disaster and thrive. 

This year, World Vision invites you to be an advocate for disaster-stricken children and families in Nepal. Navigate Nepal's mountains on World Vision's Hike for Hope, and bring the gift of education to Sindhuli East. 

THE CHALLENGE:
Hike for Hope and rally your friends to support World Vision's education initiatives in Sindhuli East. The funds raised will go towards:
- Improving infrastructure of education institutions (including better classrooms and sanitation facilities) and ensuring schools are equipped to withstand impending disaster
- Training teachers to adopt child-friendly teaching methods
- Training parents on better farming methods so that they can increase their income and support their children's education

*More details will be given at the pre-trip briefing.
