A big thank you to all our recent contributors!
Fellow adventurers, Heather Bond, Joseph Escobar, Amy Rhodes and Discovery Channels popular survivalist, Jeff Zausch, from Naked and Afraid, will embark March of 2023, on a 20 day journey, through some of the most remote villages on earth. With limited means of medical services and many with out electricity, our mission is to deliver much needed reading glasses and solar powered reading lights to the schools and clinics.
Like so many Westener's, we too have taken for granted the power of electricity and what it can do to enhance our lives. We flip the light switches on and off and plug in all of our gadgets without a bat of our eye. But how about our education?
Trekking Ambassadors has seen what the power of light can do to change the educational trajectory of a students life. We have become a small ripple of change for students by creating
"Solar Light Libraries" at schools who either have no electricity or very limited.
On the other side of the coin, we are all aging, some a bit more gracefully than others. I don't know if you have personally experienced it yet, or not, but studies show that by the time most people reach their forties they need various types of reading glasses. Can you imagine not being able to have access to the most basic kind. These magnifier glasses are certainly not just for reading. How about buttoning a small button or snap, clasping a piece of jewelry or just possible finding something you dropped in a dark place. We are well aware of how reading glasses can make a persons quality of life just a little clearer.
This is a big logistical endeavor for our team. Our mission and goal is to transport and deliver various strengths of reading glasses to local clinics along with the amazing Unite to Light, solar reading lights to the students in five different villages. Many of these remote villages are located above 15,000 ft.
Our journey from village to village will entail us hiking with all the supplies on our backs. We are looking to hire two local porters to accompany us with additional supplies for the first five days and then continue on our own.
Our hike will find us crossing over the Cho La pass and glacier at 17,782 ft. This will lead us to our last three villages including Everest Base Camp. We have a local contact and guide who will be helping us distribute these much needed goods to a lower surrounding clinic, you can read about this at www.sherpaproject.org
We value being the difference through selflessness and dedication to building sustainable relationships, community engagement and protecting the environment.
Every donation counts!
Your contribution and support helps us deliver this much needed aid to far remote places and creates a brighter future for many.
Warm Wishes and many thanks
