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.
The participants will hike through a stunning part the High Atlas mountains in Morocco. During this 11 day adventure, participants will raise their voices and prayers while identifying with those trapped in modern day slavery, who have a long and hard climb to freedom, both physically and spiritually.
The challenge to get up every morning and to climb the highest mountain in North Africa is a test of any hiker's ability and will challenge your hearts for the vulnerable and marginalized of the world.

An exciting 11-day High Atlas adventure, starting and ending in the historic city of Marrakesh, taking in the valleys and the passes of the High Atlas mountain range, staying in a mix of traditional home-stays, refuges, camping and guest houses; this back-to-basics, mule and porter supported expedition is a fantastic insight into daily Berber life with a healthy dose of adventure. The pinnacle of this adventure is reaching the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in Northern Africa. This will be an enriching, enticing, and adventurous expedition that supports the local communities and the people who open to us their villages, homes and share the environment with us.
