monthly donors


To raise funds to support our Educational projects in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil participants in this challenge will scale 4 impressive volcanoes in Guatemala. This tough challenge will push people to their limit but the funds raised will live on after the aches and pains have healed and fund educational materials and scholarships for these children who would otherwise go without.


Our projects in Latin America have seen great success over the years and we are very proud of our achievements but there is much work to be done, funds raised by this challenge help us to take larger strides in the field and push things forward.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the key to long term sustainable community development, the children we support today represent the hope for the future. We have already seen children on our projects move on to further education and opportunities before unknown to them.
