Transaid is looking for volunteers from across the transport and logistics industry to participate in its February 2011 fundraising project, Trek Ethiopia.
Teams and individuals are welcome to join the nine-day trekking challenge through the Simien mountains – dubbed the Tibet of Africa.
The journey will include opportunities to see historic cities and national parks populated by rare species, and to experience Ethiopian culture.
Transaid events executive Aggie Krasnolucka-Hickman said: “Trek Ethiopia provides an opportunity to see some incredible sights, get fit, bond with fellow workers and help save the lives of thousands. We’d urge anyone keen on participating to get in touch as soon as they can before the last places get snapped up.”
Trek Ethiopia runs from 4th-12th February 2011. There is an option of staying on to explore the country.
Transaid is an international development charity that finds transport-related solutions to problems in Africa and the developing world.
Funds raised from Trek Ethiopia will go to Transaid’s Emergency Transport Scheme in Nigeria, which provides women with access to emergency obstetric care during pregnancy.
