Changing Lives One Adventure at a Time.
Our travels have taken us around the world, introducing us to individuals with needs that couldn’t be ignored. We’ve had a tremendous impact on the lives of thousands and we’re on a mission to help thousands more.
K2 Adventures Foundation works with disability communities in Tanzania, Peru and Nepal. Medical care in Third World countries is scarce and practically inaccessible to individuals with little to no income. Sadly, this means a lot of disabilities are left untreated. With the support of our donors and sponsors, we have built a free-standing medical and dental clinic, repaired classrooms and brought thousands of kilos of essential supplies.
There is still a lot more heartfelt work to be done and we can’t wait for you to join us.
The White Hat Project
The White Hat Project (WHP) will build Tanzania’s first safe-haven for young girls and women who are victims of sexual violence. This initiative is the next step in K2 Adventures Foundation’s successful Tanzanian philanthropic and community service program begun in 2009. Our decade of service will now be expanded to actively address the growing needs of an overlooked subset of Tanzania’s female population. We believe the WHP can be the beginnings of a cultural shift for victims of sexual violence in Tanzania.
Summit Happy Home
Although Arusha is one of the most developed cities in Tanzania, it continues to struggle with crippling levels of poverty and meager living conditions. Children are disproportionately affected, which is why we partnered with Summit Happy Home to provide displaced and orphaned children with better opportunities.
William Francis Cherilla K2 Prosthetic Center at NSK Hospital
In 2022, K2 Adventures Foundation had the opportunity to partner with Hope to Walk, a non-proﬁt that creates prosthetic limbs out of local materials in Third World countries.
Co-Founder and President of K2 Adventures Foundation, Kevin Cherilla’s dream came to fruition by helping people with limb loss and honoring his grandfather, William Francis Cherilla, who lost his leg at the age 7 in 1915. Our goal is to provide Tanzanians experiencing limb loss with a new outlook on life. This program will assist these individuals with job opportunities and their ability to provide income for their families, as well as allow them to live with conﬁdence.
Dr. Rahul Chawla Pediatric ICU at NSK Hospital
NSK saw the need to serve the most vulnerable in the community, the youngest babies and children.
K2 Adventures Foundation’s PICU/NICU ﬁnancial support is donated to serve the less fortunate, in honor of Board Member Dr. Rahul Chawla and his family. Since 2018, Dr. Rahul has led medical service teams in Tanzania. He dedicates his life to serving the critical care of the youngest population both in Arizona and Tanzania.
Global Education Scholarship Fund
K2 Adventures Foundation’s goal is to award scholarships to global students with serious financial disadvantages to enable access to schooling.
