2010 Challenge Complete!

In November 2 groups of enthusiastic and slightly crazy GVI volunteers and staff challenged themselves to scale 5 volcanoes in a week in Guatemala to raise funds for the GVI Charitable Trust projects.

The first volcano was the active and Pacaya volcano which made international news recently it violently erupted and covered half of the country in ash! Next was the mighty Santa Maria, where after a 4am start the group were rewarded with spectacular views of the Guatemalan countryside and other active volcanoes. Then on to Tajumulco, the highest point in Central America with views in to Mexico and El Salvador and a freezing summit! The beautiful Lake Atitlan followed with the San Pedro volcano and finally for those who could still stand the impressive Acatenego which looms over the active Fuego and provides outstanding views.

This amazing challenge has raised a huge amount for the projects which is going to help us push on in 2011 with a real buzz and lots of potential for development.

Many thanks to all of the Volcano Challengers and our supporters and donors!
