Dhruv’s Nepalese Trek

Dhruv, in Year 6, has been volunteering nearly every Saturday with a local food bank in KL as part of the Charter challenge, and this has affected him deeply.

He and his family picked an Indian NGO called Child Rights and You (cry.org ) for his fundraising effort. This NGO works primarily for the upliftment of children in need covering all aspects from education to health to sanitation etc. He therefore decided to conduct a sponsored 4 day trek in the Annapurna range (part of the Himalayas) in Nepal- specifically to the summit of a small mountain called Poon Hill.

Standing at 3210 metres (about 10,000 feet), the trek required both Dhruv and his mother, Meera, to climb over 3500 steps on the first day, walk through a variety of terrain from rock to rock-cut steps, forest trails to slopes, and even over ice (there was a hailstorm a day before!). On one of the days, he started trekking at 4.00 a.m. and finished at 7.00 p.m. Quite a tiring trek even for adults.

What was striking was how Dhruv kept his patience and calm through it, simply because of his commitment to his campaign. Had this not been for a cause it could've been a pretty frustrating day!

When we asked him to write a diary entry or a report on it, this video is what we got! Dhruv’s efforts raised well over 2000 USD which in India could bring quite a strong impact in the lives of underprivileged children in India.
