"Whitewater Rafting" Expedition with BLINDROCKS
Bhote Koshi River - Tibet and Nepal “Uniting children through education and positive sport experiences”
Dear sportsmen and whitewater lover!
We invite you to participate and donate to BLIND ROCKS and our expedition to help BlindRocks Programs in Nepal.
Whitewater expeditions is not just a sport, it is also a great chance to increase the touristic potential of a country. Every year we will hold yearly events with like minded organizations such as BLINDROCKS to bring awareness to children’s and adults needs around the world.
This years Whitewater Rafting Expedition, will help make a difference and build awareness about local needs in education, in schools, for the blind, both children and adults and for those children with disabilities, where opportunities in education are scarce and often times children are set aside living in shame. For developed countries to prosper it takes an educated community to start making the difference and people working together, united to help empower their communities.
This expedition will directly benefit BLINDROCKS and their amazing programs in music, culture, dance, art and their sporting events that they run and hold yearly with the local schools and the Nepal’s communities.
161 million persons live with a disabling visual impairment, of whom 37 million are blind and 124 million are persons with low vision. Every 5 seconds someone becomes blind, every minute somewhere a child goes blind. About 90% of them live in developing countries of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific Regions. 9 out of 10 blind children in developing countries have no access to education.
A little about the Whitewater Expedition
Bhote Koshi River is adventurous for whitewater adventurers. It has very challenging river rafting and kayaking filled with exciting gorges between the mountain valleys. On this journey there will be 30+ children and adults who are either BLIND or VISUALLY IMPAIRED, working directly with their team leaders and guides during this journey. It is both an exciting and limitless opportunity to give every child an opportunity to dream and live, to step outside of their limits and realize that every dream is possible, with the right support and guidance.
This adventure will be held yearly and although this year you may not be able to join us, we look forward to having you join us next year.
