Expedition, 10 weeks

Participants spend 10 weeks in Tanzania, Nepal, or Costa Rica. Over the ten weeks, they complete three phases:

  • Community: Past community projects include building a community hall in Nicaragua, installing a water system in Malaysia, and building a school in Tanzania. The projects are tough, but meaningful.
  • Environmental: The environmental projects are diverse – they might be building a bridge in the Imbak Canyon in Malaysia, or installing elephant-proof fencing in Tanzania.
  • Adventure: Participants push themselves beyond your limits to trek 250 kilometres through a mountainous region in Costa Rica/Nicaragua or climb a mountain in Borneo. During this phase they will surely find out what they’re made of.

During the expedition, participants could be staying with a local family on one phase, eating locally prepared food and using their washing facilities, or sleeping in bashers and cooking their meals on a camping stove the next. The adventure phase is the most basic and challenging - camping and carrying all of their food on their back - but by learning to live without luxuries they will appreciate the things they have back home.

 

The expeditions are designed to be challenging, life-changing experiences. The more the participants put in, the more they get out of it.
