Ethiopia Charity Challenges

If you're looking for a unique charity challenge, Ethiopia might be just the place! Blessed with ancient cultures, rugged landscapes and intensely blue skies, this is an extraordinary destination that might not be on your radar, but should be.

Raise money for your favourite cause as you trek along the spectacular escarpment trails of the Simien Mountains, spot unique wildlife and World Heritage Listed monuments, and tackle an ascent of Ras Dashen (4,550m), Ethiopia's highest peak.

Learn about the life-changing charity work being done locally, including Australian obstetrician Dr Catherine Hamlin AC and her work restoring the health and dignity of women with childbirth injuries.

Then cap off your challenge by taking part in Africa’s biggest running event, the Great Ethiopian Run, where you’ll join elite athletes and more than 35,000 competitors for an unforgettable race through the high-altitude hills of Addis Ababa.

Our charity challenge experts can create a customised itinerary or can match you with other fundraisers on one of our upcoming challenges. Get in touch today and start planning your Ethiopian adventure for a cause!
