Challenging Events. Changing Lives

Challenge for Change exists to raise awareness of extreme poverty and to change the lives of those who currently live within these dehumanising conditions. We like seeing our event participants suffer for such a worthwhile cause. Hence our motto, ‘Challenging events, changing lives.’

Since 2008 such events have raised over $1Million and seen hundreds of students supported on an ongoing basis who could not otherwise afford formal schooling. They have been held in Australia, Africa and New Zealand and have engaged both the donor community (mostly in challenging cycling or walking events) and students from Eagles Wings Zambia in a Surf Challenge!
