Our team is comprised of a fun and adventurous group of mountaineers and backpackers, most of whom are members of Seattle's Bushwhacker Climbing Club. Last year, our team leader, Jackie, a board member of TRIFC and a Bushwhacker, introduced to us the idea of doing a fundraising trek in Nepal to benefit children with disabilities and here we are, making it happen! All funds raised will be donated to TRIFC to support their programs and a part of our trip will be spent visiting TRIFC project sites and meeting some of the children TRIFC supports!

TRIFC's Vision & Goals:

The primary mission of The Rose International Fund for Children ( is to improve the lives of children in Nepal, particularly those with disability. raises funds through donations, grants and hands-on fundraising activities. With the funds raised we provide financial support to existing non-profit organizations in Nepal that share our goals and vision. Our focus is on providing support in the areas of education, medical needs, nutrition, facilities and environment improvements. We participate in project planning, coordination and implementation. In addition, we raise awareness of the living conditions of these children by documenting and publishing our project work. believes in sharing resources with those less fortunate.

Annapurna Circuit Trek 2014

Trek around the beautiful Annapurna Massif hiking to an elevation of 17,769 ft above sea level to witness the majestic Himalayan Mountain peaks and see how our fundraising efforts can help children with disabilities thrive in a country whose government and society hinder their equal participation to nation building.

Purpose of Trek:

In Nepal, people with disabilities are thought to be cursed or suffering from a past-life sin. This trek will raise awareness and provide funds to support education, opportunity and empowerment for people with disability!

Goal of Trek:

To exceed $10,000 in donations to help fund existing projects in Nepal:

* School supplies for blind/visually impaired children

* Braille libraries & literacy projects

* Support for deaf women’s empowerment groups

* Food and nutrition support

* Medical and surgical support

* School sponsorship
