About The Trek to Transform Young Lives
A true feast for the senses, you will arrive in Hanoi and have the chance to explore this bustling city and visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to learn more about the country’s fascinating yet tragic history.
From Hanoi, you will then travel to enchanting Sapa in northern Vietnam. Here, you’ll trek amongst the awe-inspiring landscapes of patchwork rice paddies and rippling green mountains. Over five days you’ll trek through the Sapa area, visiting rural villages along the way and experiencing traditional Vietnamese culture, every kilometre revealing a new splendour. You also have the opportunity to visit the dazzling Halong Bay with its limestone karsts jutting out of emerald water.
If you’ve ever dreamed of making a difference to others in a truly impactful way, this is your opportunity.
Kanoa visits Kiwi Can
In the build up to Trek to Transform, Kanoa visited a Kiwi Can class to see first hand what it does for tamariki. It was a great chance for Kanoa to see exactly what her and our other amazing trekkers are fundraising for. She's right behind the work of the Graeme Dingle Foundation and the importance of building self belief and resilience in our tamariki so they are better able to chart their own meaningful lives- instead of living a life dictated by circumstance. Visit the link below to help Kanoa and our trekkers in their quest to raise funds for our programmes.Donate
Good morning, Vietnam! Kanoa's Tour of Love
"Getting into nature is pretty magical when I’m feeling bad. There’s nothing like taking your shoes off and getting into the fresh air. But it’s time to get a bit more serious and I’m really lucky my husband has got on board with the health kick too, so we can do it together.” But this isn’t about weight loss, insists Kanoa, who wants to get fit in time for a trip to Vietnam in April, when she’ll lead a week-long trek to raise money for the Graeme Dingle Foundation. The Kiwi charity works with young people to give them opportunities, self-esteem and adventure, often in nature. It’s a cause that’s close to Kanoa’s heart.Read more
