ABOUT THE CHARITY
Due to COVID-19, we cannot currently travel to Nepal to complete this incredible trek however we remain committed to fundraising for our charity projects and to providing ways for you to keep fit with us.
Funds raised through this challenge will provide on-going operational support for children of the Eco-Farm.
Mission Himalaya was founded in 2008 by a group of socially committed professionals to help rural and back tracked Nepalese communities. Not only have they committed to reaching out to those in need of proper healthcare and education but are also dedicated to helping orphaned and homeless children. Nepal has as many as 80,000 orphans, all in need of a safe, secure home.
