Oxfam Ireland has launched a thrilling challenge event involving a trek through the Indian Himalayas to help raise vital funds for its work. This is the ultimate challenge event for anyone looking for a once in a life- time adventure.
The 12-day expedition from October 24th to November 4th 2013 will include 6 days of trekking in the Himalayas, water- rafting on the river Ganges, a visit to the Diwali festival of lights and a chance to explore the magical sites of Delhi.
This is a challenge of mental and physical stamina that anyone with the right training and commitment can achieve. With every step of the journey, participants will be helping to save lives in emergencies, transform lives through long-term development projects and change lives forever by ensuring people affected by poverty and injustice have a say in decisions that affect them through our advocacy work.
Cliodhna Carthy from Oxfam’s Community Events team said: “We are super excited about this new challenge event. We are sure anyone who joins us on this journey will be thrilled by the adventure and will find it a truly rewarding experience.”
