WHY WE TREK >
MORE THAN A TREK
Trekking for Kids provided us the opportunity to unite our love for orphans and passion for the outdoors in a single, unforgettable trip. Working together as a team through each step of the journey, from raising money for the children to reaching the top of the mountain, facilitated lasting relationships with our fellow trekkers. With each trip we take, we gain a better perspective of the world around us-igniting our desire to serve. Josh and Kathryn Bashaw, Texas

More than a Trek...
Many people have described a Trekking for Kids’ Expedition as a “life-changing” experience due to the emotional, physical, and mental challenges often experienced on the trip. Our Trekkers join our Expeditions for a variety of reasons, but they all have one motivation in common, they commit to the Trek not just for themselves, but also for a group of orphans with whom they will spend four unforgettable days.
On a Trekking for Kids Expedition, very different lives and cultures cross paths when our Trekkers interact with the orphans and experience the culture where the Trek takes place. The actual Trek may have been the main attraction for the Trekker prior to joining a Trekking for Kids Expedition, but once he or she arrives in country and visits with the children, the magic of Trekking for Kids begins to manifest itself.
Our goal, is that each Trekker finds his or her “summit” at some point during the experience, which positively impacts their personal growth and development. Our hope is that each of us who participates in a Trekking for Kids Expedition returns home a better and more complete person.
Find your summit...join us on one of our life changing treks and help us Improve Today, Secure Tomorrow...One Step at a Time.
