Intrepid mixes fundraising & travel with Charity Treks

Intrepid Travel is encouraging travellers to sign up to one of its Charity Treks in Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Everest or Kokoda this year as part of a fundraising initiative by its not-for-profit fund, The Intrepid Foundation.

In joining one of these three Charity Treks, travellers are committing to fundraise $1,500 CAD for NGOs and community projects supported by The Intrepid Foundation – from providing funding to train teachers and healthcare workers along the Kokoda Track to remote communities in the Nepalese Himalayas and an education project in Kilimanjaro. The trips will include a visit to these projects so travellers can see the lives they are helping improve first-hand.

Everest Basecamp is included in the Charity Treks in spite of the damage caused by the earthquake that hit Nepal in April, as Intrepid Travel is anticipating infrastructure to be up and running again by October.

The Intrepid Foundation has been working with the children’s charity Plan International in the wake of the earthquake to provide ongoing support for the Kathmandu Valley. To date, over $370,000 has been raised.

To take on a Charity Trek, travellers must register at:
