Adventure for A Cause is a dream journey giving you and a team of fellow trekkers the opportunity to explore the majestic Himalayas, to visit the ancient melting pot of Nepal’s communities and cultures and uncover hidden local beauties in the Kathmandu Valley. Come on a journey with us to challenge yourself physically & mentally whilst making a direct positive impact in the lives of street based children and young people and families at risk through the funds you raise.

Your Journey

Your journey will start in Sydney, Australia where you will meet some of the WTMY Australia team who will organise your trek from your first day to last day in Nepal. The team will help you to get ready for your trip and to prepare for your fundraising and volunteering at the WTMY centre in Kathmandu.

The real journey starts when you hit Kathmandu! You will start in the amazing city of Kathmandu, get grounded in the local community and explore some of the local highlights. Next stop is the great Himalayan trail of Annapurna where you will trek over the next 11 days along the trail and complete your journey reaching the Annapurna Basecamp at the height of 4,250m.

Together with a team of mountain guide and sherpas, you will experience the sheer beauty and generosity of the Nepalese people living in the mountains of the Himalayas and the amazing culture that surrounds it.

Your last stop will be back in Kathmandu and at WTMY HQ! Here you and the team will be spending a day doing essential upgrades to the WTMY Community Centre where all our services are delivered to children, young people and local communities.

Making every step count

Throughout your journey you will be supported by everyone who has helped you to get here and fundraised for this incredible cause. Every step really makes a difference to WTMY’s vital work with Nepal’s street based children and young people

WTMY Making a difference

WTMY’s mission is to change children & young people’s lives through our involve- inspire & enable approach. We have a unique holistic social work model of support offering new and respectful ways for children and young people to get support and to build safety and resilience.

For over 6 years, WTMY has worked in the street connected communities of Kathmandu. We are increasing safety, inspiring development, enabling positive futures and creating opportunities and choices through holistic community based support, practical education, training and savings schemes. Examples of just some of our programs include kids club, climb for kids, parent groups, IT classes, barista training and guiding training.

In 2017, WTMY has now supported over 750 children, young people and their families and continues to expand offering critical services and meaningful opportunities.

With your help raising funds through Adventure for A Cause, our teams of social workers, educators, trainers and support staff and volunteers can continue to provide support and run programs. We cannot provide these crucial services without people like yourself backing us all the way.
