Machu Picchu comes to Our Rainbow House! We are truly blessed to have inspirational young people who follow our charity. Our Rainbow House is proud to introduce Scott Hale who would like to trek in Peru next year to raise funds for our charity.
If you are looking for something meaningful to give your family or friends at this special time of the year, maybe you would like to donate to this cause to help with the ongoing education of the orphans and vulnerable students at our school.
“Bucket lists come in all shapes and sizes but on top of a lot of bucket lists is to visit the amazing and ancient city of Machu Picchu. My partner, Kelly, has seen many different places around the world but the top of her list is the ancient Incan city so with myself and our friend Scott in Perth, we decided to go.
But this is a trip with a difference. We have organised our trip through HUMA Charity Challenge. HUMA is part of the World Expeditions Group, combining travelling with fundraising. We decided that we would each pick a charity that is close to our hearts and raise money for our trek. My partner Kelly lost a close friend to ovarian cancer a few years ago, whilst my friend Scott lost his father to melanoma.
I decided to pick a charity organised by a very close family friend to help kids in Lusaka, Zambia receive an education, Our Rainbow House! I have known Alison my whole life as Alison and my mother went to school together and have remained life-long friends. This was the charity that I want to get involved with and my aim is to raise over $3000. If you could please help in any way possible that would be fantastic. We head to Peru in May so I’m hoping to raise as much as I can in that time. Thanks again”

Thank you Scott. I can vouch for the beauty of Peru and in particular Machu Picchu.
