Working in hospitality means going the extra mile to look after hotel guest every day. But now I'm putting on my walking boots to go the extra mile of a different kind.
After seeing how hard Children of the Mountain work to provide a better future for young people at a fundraising event, I felt like I had to get involved to try and make a difference.
The trek will be a huge personal challenge for me, but one I'm willing to do to help COTM build schools and offer education to children who would otherwise miss out.
Every donation is appreciated and will spur me on - thank you!Kaye:
When I was introduced to the work Mike Smith and John Matthews, founder of the charity, were doing I was bowled over and knew immediately I wanted to be involved more. Before I knew it, Mike had sorted our flights to Katmandu! I can’t wait - it will be life changing I know!
We are all so very lucky to live in a safe environment with our families, friends and support of local communities, of course we complain about daily life challenges, but it is beyond comprehension that in this world so many children suffer without the basic life requirements.
This charity makes things happen, by getting people involved and then make a difference to the lives of young children, with a vision for a fairer world where all children of gender, caste or economic circumstance have access to an education as a means of overcoming hardship and inequality.
So, Craig and I are going to work extremely hard and dedicate all the time it needs, with the support of our families; friends and work colleagues to raise as much as possible protect these vulnerable children, inspire teachers and enable adults to be strong and competitive.
We are aiming to raise enough funds to build a safe secure learning environment for 50 children and more…
so whatever you can donate is really appreciated, be part of our journey and help us make a difference.
We will keep you posted on our fundraising events, we would love you to join us on one of them if you can. Then when we return, we cannot wait to share our story about this amazing trip to help these young people.
