It is through our physical challenges that we identify in a tangible way with the incredibly steep climb to freedom so many women and children have every day. Each challenge produces prayer and finances for over 20 projects in Africa, and awareness of the injustices taking place in the world.
Everest Base Camp / Kala Phattar
The purpose of hiking to Everest Base Camp was not just about climbing a mountain; it was about helping people.
In April 2014, forty-five women from thirteen countries traveled to Nepal where they climbed to Mt. Kala Patthar (just above Base Camp). They climbed for the freedom of the most poor, vulnerable, marginalized, and exploited.
They were supported by 18 intercessors in Kathmandu and saw great answers to their prayers as human traffickers were caught the day the team summited.
Each climber had the responsibility to raise between $5,000 and $10,000. They were also asked to make use of the media and their relationships in their local communities to raise awareness and prayer.
