Want to achieve something incredible this year? Walk in solidarity with people affected by poverty and injustice around the world by taking part in Trailtrekker 2013.
You’ll be raising vital funds in the new and improved event through the stunning Mourne Mountains on Saturday June 15th, changing lives for the better.
Every step you take in the new 25km route or the popular 50km event will make a positive difference, from helping the Maasai community in Tanzania ensure their land rights are protected to supporting girls and women in learning the skills to make a living in Rwanda, along with our response to emergencies such as the current situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
CAPTIONS: Top-left: Two Maasai men walk home in Malambo village in Tanzania. We’re supporting Maasai communities so that they are equipped to take part in a national discussion about the new Tanzanian constitution and can put forward their case for new guarantees that they won’t be moved from their land. Aubrey Wade/Oxfam. Middle-left: Girls walk to Endulen primary school in Tanzania. Children may have to trek 20km or more to get to school and back, which impacts particularly on girls’ attendance. Helping girls and women access education is part of our work to strengthen the voice of women in their communities. Ami Vitale/Oxfam. Bottom-left: On the move, families flee ongoing fighting in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are currently providing water, sanitation, food and cash transfer to local communities and those who have fled their homes to escape the terrible conflict. Kate Holt/Oxfam. Right: One of last year's Trailtrekker teams walk in solidarity with people affected by poverty.
Join hundreds of people from all walks of life including complete novices and seasoned hill-walkers in this inspirational event.
