BOISE, Idaho - Jan. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- Make A Difference (MAD) Now, a not-for-profit organization that provides quality educational opportunities for orphaned and vulnerable youth, invites hikers to participate in the organization's MAD Everest Base Camp Hike for Education fundraiser Oct. 9, 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Participants will experience 13 incredible days hiking through the Himalayas, including four days in Kathmandu, ending their journey Oct. 25. Proceeds from the hike will impact 50,000 people by providing them with computer and literacy training and help fully support 26 impoverished orphaned children from Tanzania, Zambia and Syria.

"We are so honored to be a partner with Make A Difference on their amazing fundraising hikes. We love seeing how each hike helps support the education of students who would normally never get the chance to go to school as well as the people in their communities with computer and literacy training," said Robin Paschall, the owner of Adventures Within Reach, MAD's travel outfitter who's been hired to guide MAD's charity hikes.

The Everest Base Camp trek is one of the top hikes in the world. Hikers experience the majestic Himalayas and the famed Mt. Everest Base Camp without the major physical challenges of actually climbing to the top of Everest. Spectacular views are a given, and so is the phenomenal Sherpa and Nepali culture as well as hospitality that rekkers enjoy.

Hikers and teams can register at: http://www.gomadnow.org/cause/everest-base-camp-kathmandu....

Those who can't participate in the hike can still help MAD make a difference by sponsoring one of the  vulnerable children. Profiles of the children can be found at:  http://www.gomadnow.org/meet-the-children/.

Upcoming MAD Hikes for Education are approaching soon in 2018.  To find out more about them go to:  http://www.gomadnow.org/get-involved/.
