The Rotary Club of Hoddesdon
Hoddesdon 2 Himalayas
Our Hoddesdon 2 Himalayas project (H2H) was inspired from the BBC documentary The Highest Classroom on Earth.
The idea first came about at the beginning of 2015 when the club decided to raise the funds to take 10 local students with 2 mentors from the local area and we invited a number of local schools to get involved. The John Warner School and Sheredes Secondary school bought into the idea and together we developed the project. The earthquake in April 2015 set back our plans but we decided to add on a community project to work in a local school. We are currently working on further details of the community project and this will be published over the coming months. Each of the students selected has taken a commitment to work with the club over the coming 12 months to help us raise the necessary funds, participate in the project organisation, training plans and assist with the running of fundraising events that the club may organise.
Why are we doing this and what do we hope to achieve ?. Well please take a few minutes to watch the video below, as we hope this will explain far better than we can with words.
As we progress our journey we will be updating this site as well as posting regular updates on our facebook page.
At present there is a group of 23 going on the trip comprising 6 club members, 10 local students aged around 17, 2 school mentors plus friends and supporters of the club.
Fund raising is through locally run events as well as some sponsorship from local business which include to date.
