THE CAUSE: CHILDREN OF THE WORLD

This campaign rebuilds young lives by supporting and strengthening local communities to protect children facing the gravest injustices.

In Pakistan, we are supporting children who are involved in child labour in Peshawar and brothel children in Lahore. Our social mobilisers encourage them to join our informal education centres where we ensure their education and psychosocial wellbeing.

In Bangladesh, we have been rescuing street children since 2014. We have a permanent transitional shelter in Dhaka and also have regular “Schools under the Sky” in busy ferry terminals like Sadarghat which are informal schools aiming to give street children a basic education.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's):

Do I need to be an experienced mountain climber to join the Trek?

The K2 Base Camp Trek is a legendary trek, suitable for ‘munro baggers’ who are used to or willing to walk in winter conditions. So if you have the passion for trekking and can walk for 8 to 10 hours in the wilderness and you love mountains, camping and adventures then this is the right challenge for you to sign up to! This will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and what will make it extra special is the children that you will be able to support as part of your fundraising efforts. During the trip you will also get to see and meet with some of the children you will be supporting.

Can I come a few days earlier or leave Pakistan a few days after the trip ends?

Yes you can. But your logistical arrangements (including accommodation, transport etc) will need to be managed yourself if this is the case.

Where can I book my flights from?

This is entirely up to you. You can use a travel agent or the following recommended websites: www.skyscanner.net and www.opodo.co.uk Please be sure to check that the flight dates, times and airports are correct. We strongly recommend that you run the flight routing through us before booking and issuing the ticket to make sure it is as per our itinerary.

Will you arrange my visa? How does it work?

No, this needs to be arranged and paid for by yourself separately. We can provide the supporting documentation required to facilitate your visa process. The cost for the visas vary depending on your nationality.

At the time of writing, British citizens can apply for a Pakistani visa using the online visa system here: https://visa.nadra.gov.pk/tourist-visa/. Please also consult the Pakistan High Commission for further information: https://www.phclondon.org/.

Do I need to get insurance?

Yes. It is strongly recommended and vital for you to have taken out your own personal insurance cover. All persons are expected to arrange their own insurance. Insurance policies should cover any potential risks involved in a K2 Base Camp Trek type of challenge.

Do I need to take any vaccinations?

Yes you may need to take these. Please ensure you consult your GP well in advance of your travel. Courses of vaccinations can take 6 weeks. We consider vaccinations against typhoid, polio, hepatitis A and B and a tetanus injection to be essential.
