OTTAWA, Sept. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Huma Challenge, a division of World Expeditions, is dedicated to helping charities raise funds by offering their supporters inspired travel experiences. Huma Challenge has teamed up with 5 Canadian charities to offer their supporters the perfect reason to fundraise.
Ottawa Food Bank is calling their supporters to join their Hunger Project in Peru, in April 2016. They are extending their vision "That no one goes hungry in the Ottawa area" to the high Andean village of Huilloq, where participants will build a greenhouse to increase the variety of vegetables grown in the community. The itinerary culminates at the enigmatic ruins of Machu Picchu. Participants are asked to raise funds to assist Ottawa Food Bank with their hunger prevention goals in Ottawa.
Animal lovers with a soft spot for bears, will find it hard to resist Animals Asia's Vietnam Challenge in May 2016, where supporters will cycle, hike and kayak around northern Vietnam before enjoying the exclusive opportunity to visit Animals Asia's bear sanctuary. The funds raised will be used to put an end to bear bile farming in Vietnam.
In the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh in India, is a community like no other. Jhamtse Gatsal is home and school for up to 90 children. The children from nearby villages each have a background of adversity. The founder, and former Buddhist Monk Lobsang Phunksok, is driven to help each of them achieve their fullest potential. The community 'shot to fame' this year with the release of the award-winning documentary 'Tashi and the Monk'. In April 2016, Jhamtse Gatsal opens its arms to welcome a group of supporters into their community to build a greenhouse that will enable them to be self-sufficient. Funds raised by the participants will be used to improve the community for the children.
It makes perfect sense for The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation (SEHF) to reward it's fundraisers with the ultimate experience, an Everest Base Camp Trek, and they have timed it perfectly in May 2016 with the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Foundations' Khunde Hospital. Funds raised will rebuild some of SEHF's projects impacted by the earthquakes earlier this year.
In July 2016, The Hera Mission of Canada invites supporters to sign-up for a unique opportunity to experience authentic Kenyan lifestyle. For the past eight years The Hera Mission has been working with a group of women from Asembo Bay, empowering them in their fight against the devastating impact of HIV, AIDs, Malaria, and TB on their community, which left many women widowed and many children orphaned. Escorted by Director and Founder, Peggy Taillon, supporters will enjoy 4 star comforts in Nairobi and the Masai Mara National Park (in time for great wildebeest migration) and will be hosted by the widows of Asembo Bay, working alongside them for 3-days on their farms. Funds raised will improve income and food security and help to build skills for these women.
World-class adventurer, Ray Zahab, and the founder of impossible2Possible (i2P) urges supporters to explore their physical limits in Peru in May 2016, when supporters will hike remote trails to reach Machu Picchu and spend 3-days working in the village of Tatsayoq, building a greenhouse and footbridge. Funds raised will enable i2P to keep their programs free for schools and Youth Ambassadors.
