Our Mission

Trekking for Kids (TFK) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which organizes purpose-driven treks for socially-conscious hikers in some of the world’s most remote and iconic locations. A Trekking for Kids expedition is like no other because it provides Trekkers with a truly unique opportunity to combine their thirst for adventure and the outdoors with their desire to help those less fortunate. TFK focuses on the orphaned and at risk children who live in the shadows of the world’s most coveted adventure destinations.

Since its inaugural Trek in 2005, Trekking for Kids volunteer Trekkers have been spreading hope to orphaned and at risk children across four continents impacting the lives of thousands of children. Over a million raised has been contributed to one-time high-impact infrastructure and sustainability projects at orphanages or schools such as much needed repairs to the facilities, new buildings, furniture, livestock, education, and even a school lunch room. These projects are aimed at providing these facilities a boost towards internal sustainability.
