Adventure Challenges (VolunTOURing)

What’s VolunTOURing?

It’s a fancy title for an adventure challenge in an amazing location combined with some volunteering for a worthy cause: the elimination of cervical cancer!

There are no skill requirements, only the desire and motivation to make a difference in the lives of girls and women in developing countries.

The volunteer aspect might involve some hands on painting or light construction work at a clinic that we support in Nepal. Or, it might have a fundraising aspect – volunteering your time, energy and efforts to raise much needed funds to screen women and vaccinate girls in places like Nepal, Bhutan, or Vietnam.

Each VolunTOURing adventure challenge is different and they are all exciting and rewarding!

Nepal Challenge 2018

ACCF has been working in Nepal since 2008 and regularly visits this unique country on Adventure Challenges. You can experience breath-taking views of Mt Everest with ACCF in 2018!

You’ll be introduced to unique villages and culture of the Sherpa people, explore the colourful markets of Namche Bazaar and the famous Thyangboche monastery – the spiritual heart of the Khumbu region. We follow established trails in the Sagamartha National Park to view many of the world’s highest peaks including the summit of Everest that peers above the 8000m peaks of Lhotse and Nuptse.

From Kathmandu we head to the ACCF clinic at Banepa to visit the women’s clinic on monthly screening day, and we’ll get our hands dirty working on full day community project. We will spend our time helping to replaster and paint part of the clinic that was damaged during the 2015 earthquake, shoulder to shoulder with the community which is very rewarding.
