It’s been a month already since our nine committed trekkers took up the challenge of a sponsored trek across the High Atlas Mountains to raise funds for the Moroccan Children’s Trust (MCT).  From the 19th to the 27th of April, the trekkers engaged in a memorable adventure to the top of North Africa. They trekked through valleys, up to high villages made predominantly out of mud brick, and ultimately climbed to the summit of Mount Toubkal – North Africa’s highest peak at 4,167 metres (13,671 feet).  The MCT trekking team enjoyed a truly authentic and enriching experience in some of the most untouched places in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.  And, most surprisingly, a welcome party in true Moroccan fashion from the team, women and children at Centre Afaq in Taroudannt!

While they succeeded in ascending Mount Toubkal, that was only one part of the sponsored challenge.  Almost everyone also met their goals of raising £2,000 each, over half of which goes directly to MCT’s Street Children Project in Taroudannt.  However, they certainly did not do it alone.  Your support, through your donations and your kind words, motivated our 9 trekkers to complete their 6-day challenge in the High Atlas Mountains. Thank you very much to all – please continue to support the trekkers who are continuing to fundraise toward their targets, ensuring that over £12,000 is raised for MCT’s ongoing work in Taroudannt.

We have been giving you previews of their exciting journey.  Now we are giving everything away!  Catch up on the amazing adventure and the challenging experience in which our committed trekkers got involved – check out our special MCT Toubkal Trek newsletter!

As this was MCT’s largest fundraiser to date, we would like to repeat the experience next year!  If you feel inspired to take on an exciting adventure and to contribute to a great cause at the same time, please send us your name for the Reserve List now!  Get in touch with our team at moroccanchildrenstrust@gmail.com.
