Charity Trips for Make a Difference Now - as seen on the Today Show

Adventures Within Reach is excited to announce new charity trips for 2015-016 to support the Make A Difference Now (MAD) projects to support children’s education in developing countries.

Upcoming trips include hiking the Inca Trail and visiting the Amazon, climbing Kilimanjaro and safari, trekking to Everest Base Camp, biking the Great Wall of China, and the W Trek in Torres del Paine in Patagonia.

“Our W Trek in Patagonia sold out, and there is limited space on the Inca Trail trek for 2015, says Robin Paschall of Adventures Within Reach. “These trips are very popular because it is a way to travel and give back to people in need.”

The 5-day Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu will be in June 2015, and an extension to the Amazon can be added. The Kilimanjaro trip will be in July 2015 and is combined with a safari and a few days volunteering with the MAD program in Himo, Tanzania. The Everest Base Camp trek is in October 2015 and is the longest and most challenging trip. The China and Patagonia trips will be offered in 2016. All the treks are fully supported with guides and porters.

Charity trips with Make A Difference

“One of our most popular trips is in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania,” says Theresa Grant of Make A Difference Now. “Volunteers work on projects along side locals, get to know the children they’re helping and see the villages the children come from. It’s great integration with the local culture, and you really feel like you are making a difference in the world.”
