The Goal
Our teenage girls (aged 15 - 16 years), have decided to take on the Volcano Tacaná hike to gain support for our Health & Well-being Program

Your donations this year will help fund
- psychological and therapeutic support for our children 
- female and youth empowerment workshops in; self-defence training, healthy body image, the importance of consent and respecting boundaries, teen resilience, and training and leadership

It's a huge job, but our girls are excited about the opportunity to prove their fitness, organisational and leadership skills, as well as to help give back to the family that has given them so much.

Please dig deep to help support our girls!

The Challenge
Over the festive period our first ever ALL FEMALE group of Misión Mexico teenagers, staff and volunteers are joining together to summit Volcano Tacana, Central America’s second biggest volcano. At 4,092 mts the hike takes 15 hours over 2 days and will be a huge challenge for our hikers, but our girls are determined to complete it!
