In the far north-west corner of Africa, perched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sahara desert, lies Morocco. A place characterised by the smell of incense, narrow labyrinths of ancient souks and rolling golden dunes - nowhere catches the spirit of Northern Africa quite like Morocco. The journey to the High Atlas Mountains gives you the chance to explore the rocky gorges and high altitude settlements that have populated the area for centuries. The local way of life here is virtually unchanged. Reaching 4,167m above sea level at the peak of Mount Toubkal this trek is both a mental and physical challenge.
What are you waiting for?
Every step you take on your challenge to climb Morocco High Atlas will help children orphaned by AIDS to take the next step in their lives too. AIDS not only deprives millions of the poorest children of the love and protection of their parents, the vast majority are left to struggle alone, many with younger siblings to care for, in desperate poverty and with the discrimination and stigma that an HIV status brings.
The money you raise will help to feed, clothe and house the children in our care. It will also help to send them to school each day where they can learn the academic and vocational skills they need to lead fulfilling lives.
We believe every child orphaned by AIDS deserves our love and protection as well as a decent chance in life. If you believe that too, then please take on this challenge for us. We’d love to have your support and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
