The lost city of Machu Picchu sits on the bucket list of many and with good reason; it’s simply breath-taking.
Gruelling yet rewarding, the Trek to Machu Picchu challenge follows the spectacular and uncrowded Ancascocha trail, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, raging rivers and remote mountain communities. Supported by our experienced leader and guides, the hike is slow, allowing for acclimatisation to the altitude and the opportunity to enjoy the unique surrounds and traditional Peruvian culture.

We sometimes have campaigns to raise money for specific projects at different times of the year so please let us know if you would like to know what our most recent campaign is, for example, past campaigns have included malaria nets for pupils, solar lamps for nighttime study and teachers salaries.
Please also see our ‘From Pennies To Pencils’ page for an easy way to fundraise for Memusi.
There are fundraising events and challenges happening all the time - keep an eye on our news page for information. However if you fancy starting your own, here are a few tried and tested ideas to raise money:
CHANGE COLLECTION – Simply start collecting pennies and loose change or perhaps start a competition between classes, families or individuals by giving them each a coin jar to collect change for a designated amount of time. The one with the most collected wins a prize.
GET SPONSORED - You can get sponsored to do pretty much anything, so think creatively! In May 2016 some of our youngest supporters ran in the 5km Colour Me Rad race and raise dover £1000 for Memusi through sponsorship
READ-A-THON - get sponsored to read books - this works best if you're someone who never normally reads.
RAFFLE - ask people to donate prizes including unwanted gifts.
DRESS DOWN DAYS – a simple yet effective fundraiser, everyone gets to dress down for a small fee (£1 is normal) * You could make it more interesting with fancy dress options.
SCHOOL DISCO - hold a disco in your school hall and have a theme depending on the time of year - Halloween, Easter, Christmas, Summer - ask for a donation to enter and have a tuck shop selling refreshments for a small donation.
PAY IT FORWARD – Give a person or team £10 and a specific amount of time to use the funds to raise as much as they can for the cause. This would be great with older children and you can tie this in with a school project.
BRACELETS – Memusi have some blue silicone bracelets to sell. Please contact us if you would like some.
YUMMY GOODIES - ask your friends and family to donate some baked goods to sell - buns, cakes, pies, pastries - anything yummy! In the Summer time, Gregor Grant sold Liquorice and Ice Cream to members of his local church to raise money for their food bank and for Memusi.
GUESS THE AMOUNT - you can empty what ever you like into a jar and for a charge, people can guess how many are in the jar. The closest guess is the winner and they will win the contents of the jar. You can use smarties (then use the tubes for the collection of coins), mini eggs, M&Ms.
SECOND HAND BOOK SALE - ask for donations of books and then have a table top sale. Any left overs can always be donated to a school in Kenya
