Do Your Own Thing
Beatrice and Josie's story
"Last May, we decided to take on the exciting challenge of trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp via the Gokyo Lakes in Nepal.
It was a long 18-day trip, and despite a few hiccups which included avalanches and landslides, we finally made it to Base Camp. Upon arrival, the feeling of pride we had was incomparable to any other feeling, not only because we had overcome a personal challenge but also because we had achieved this for a charity we truly felt passionate about.
We chose Women for Women International as this charity had an ethos which we really supported; we were especially keen to help women through their 'sponsor a sister' programme and to help empower individual women in war stricken countries, by providing them with the skills and resources which can set them up for life.
We now have two sisters of our own with whom we can keep in touch whilst both our mothers also have sisters. We are sure that with our acheivment, they will succeed in the coming year!"
