Ugandan Gorilla Trek with East African Playgrounds

Take your journey by foot and hand-crafted dug-out canoe across the amazing landscapes of the Ugandan highlands tackling mountains, extinct volcanoes, forests and lakes with breath-taking views along the way, including the famous River Nile. Trek through Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and come face to face with the last remaining wild silverback mountain gorillas in the world. Then, see where your fundraising is going by living and volunteering in a school for a week, transforming an empty playing field into a vibrant, exciting and creative playground for all to enjoy.

Play is one of the most important building blocks for a child's growth. Without the freedom to play children struggle to make friends, to learn, to reach their physically capabilities, to enjoy life and so much more. By building safe, fun and high quality playgrounds across Uganda, EAP is able to promote and reinforces the importance of every children having their childhood. All our playgrounds are tailor-made to the community, they are built using local materials by our highly professional local build team. Just one playground will impact hundreds of children over it's 10 year life-span. Do you want to be part of making this impact?

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Hope for Children

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all-time great achievements, with only 1% of the world’s population taking on the challenge. Rising majestically from the savannah of Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a chilling 5,895m, climbing high above the cloud line. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. Climb your way skywards through all types of terrain as you walk through the clouds on your trek to the roof of Africa. Watch the sunrise over the vast African plains as you finally reach the summit you’ve been working tirelessly towards before trekking back down to enjoy the more relaxing side of Tanzania and Zanzibar. 

Hope for Children enable vulnerable children to experience a positive childhood by improving their access to education and healthcare whilst empowering their families to support themselves. Be a part of this change!

Trek Machu Piccu with Action Against Hunger

Follow in the footsteps of the Spanish Conquistadors and early 20th Century explorers as you cross the high Peruvian Andes in search of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Inca. The trek route departs from the bustling colonial mountain town of Cusco and winds its way through breathtaking mountain passes, past sacred mountains and on through humid jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu.

Action Against Hunger is an international charity committed to ending child hunger. We work to save the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with sustainable access to safe water and long-term solutions to hunger. Our programmes focus on four areas:

Nutrition – treating malnourished children to nurse them back to health

Water and sanitation – helping to prevent illness and disease that can cause malnutrition

Helping communities to establish food security – enabling families to be self-sufficient

Advocacy – lobbying support and keeping hunger on the political agenda

Iceland Fire & Ice Trek with The Children's Society

Experience the incredible natural beauty of Iceland as you trek over mountain passes, past active volcanoes and across glaciated lakes. Starting and finishing from the capital city of Reykjavík and taking in much of the south of the island, the Iceland: Fire and Ice trek will see you strap on crampons and ice axes as you trek across Europe’s largest glacier as well as trekking to the now infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano and venturing between the giant floating Icebergs of the Jökulsárlón Lagoon. The endless summer days and other worldly scenes of the Icelandic wilderness make this a challenge not to be missed or soon forgotten.


The Children’s Society helps change children’s stories, working towards a country where all children are free from disadvantage.

We’ve been trusted for over a century to drive change locally and nationally and provide support where it’s needed most. We base this vital work on the experiences of every child we help and the solid evidence we gather.

Every year, we work directly with more and more of the most disadvantaged children. We do this through our extensive network of frontline services, supported by an army of volunteers. Together, we tackle child poverty and neglect head on, from helping families trapped in debt, child runaways and young carers, to stopping child sexual exploitation.
