Improve living and education standards for local people and help protect wildlife habitats in ongoing conservation projects in Ecuador.
About the project
Next year, Harry, Kuldeep, Charles and Charlie will embark on an expedition to Ecuador with Camps International, a four-week excursion including community development work, environmental projects and wildlife conservation, as well as a challenging trek in Cotopaxi National Park.
There are three main components of this expedition:
Community – we will stay in our camps that are co-located within local communities in which we will be undertaking project work. This could be anything from building new classrooms to seaweed farming.
Environment- all expeditions have a strong environmental project element and we will visit some of the most amazing environments on the planet, but these are under constant threat. Camps' aim is to help protect the natural environment through projects such as tree planting, establishing sustainable practices and education.
Wildlife- we will work to maintain and support the natural environment surrounding the local communities in which we are based. As we will not undertake hands-on wildlife work, our main focus will be on activities such as reforestation, digging waterholes and snare collecting to name a few.
Not only will this benefit the people who live there, but we will come from this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as better-developed, more independent people, having being stretched out of our comfort zone, therefore opening doors for the future such as university and job applications.
This expedition will not be cheap, so to contribute to our costs, we are partaking in a bike ride on 22nd August which will cover 100km.
We ask you to sponsor us for organising and taking part in this event and, in turn, contribute to the betterment of many young lives in the underdeveloped regions of Ecuador and the ever-deteriorating environment and wildlife.
