Nepal Community Trek 2023
We are organising a trip to Nepal in Nov 2023. Register your interest below, only limited seats are available.
Trek is led by RFN Co-founder, Lou Nulley
RFN organises one trip per year led by RFN co-founder Lou Nulley. This is the only trip available to the public.
These annual trips include an element of trekking as well as undertaking a specific development project which often comprises a humanitarian aid component as well. Typically groups contribute through assisting in the rebuild of schools, water tanks, and other infrastructure, but there is the opportunity for you to contribute in any way that complies with the objectives of the foundation.
