Imagine: Fishermen arriving at the shore in the early morning, in their handmade boats, to sell their daily catch to the locals.

For those of you who will participate in The Hike, you will experience the real Ghana! Not only along the coastline, but also in the various villages, the city and the Shai Hills National Park, known for its baboons.

In two 12 hour walks you will walk as many miles as possible for SOS Childrens Villages in Ghana. With every step you take, you'll make a difference in the lives of children who desperately need your support. This is what makes the adventure extra special: you're giving a child the chance to grow up in a loving family and a chance at a brighter future. We ask you to raise € 1500 and by doing this, you'll be making a direct contribution to improving the lives of the vulnerable children in Ghana.

The Hike will take place on November 16  and 17, near Tema, on the Volta River and in Shai Hills. We ask that you book your own flight and make sure to arrange your own accommodation before and after The Hike. The kick-off meeting will be held in Accra on November 15. Would you like to participate? Register now and take advantage of the special early bird discount and pay a €150 registration fee instead of €190.
Children, under the age of 18, receive a 50% discount on the registration fee. For all details please read our FAQ’s.

SOS Children's Villages: A family for every child

No child should grow up alone. SOS Children's Villages believes that family is the most effective place for a child to develop. Unfortunately, many children are on their own because they’ve either lost their parents, or their parents are unable to take care of them. In the SOS Children's Villages in Ghana we give children a new home in a SOS family. Under the care of their SOS mother, they grow up to become promising adults. Every child a family, every child a future.
