Childaid is a charity that supports Child orientated Projects which will help them get out of the harsh and brutal conditions of Slum Life. We strive to improve the welfare of disadvantaged children through education, health and residential care projects.

test"We believe that the long term solution to the African problem lies in empowering future generations to make their own decisions, and we work closely with children who reside in slum areas. To date we have given thousands of children access to education and health care, and so helped raise their expectations of life."

We raise funds by organising group treks to Kilimanjaro, Everest Base camp, Mount Kenya, Ben Nevis Carrauntohill and other attractive destinations, ensuring that trekkers are given a first hand experience of the projects their funding assists. Our trips therefore have a unique mix of hands on experience, mountains, trekking, and that great Irish tradition "plenty of Craic". 

We run trips to Mount Kenya (Nov), Kilimanjaro (Aug), and Everest Base Camp. Details of these treks can be viewed in the Treks section of this site.
