Hope Is Resilient


Thank You for Your Consideration


At Mission Without Borders, we believe meaningful change is achieved by investing time, building relationships and nurturing potential. 

From 3 - 21 March 2023, Liz Butler, in partnership with Mission Without Borders, will be taking on Imja Tse, better known as Island Peak, a mountain in Sagarmatha National Park of the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. In a journey totalling 90 km, she will climb to the base camp of Everest and continue on to scale the Island Peak (6 189m).

By supporting this Challenge, you are helping to give individuals the courage to journey with us towards a brighter, hope-filled future.

You can do this by donating any amount or sponsoring Liz per kilometre.
