During the QuestTrek® the adolescents draw up a personal development plan for when they leave the orphanage. On a 6-day hike through the Himalayas, out of their everyday environment– Mountain Child Care accompanies them on their journey, inspiring them to inspire themselves. During the hike they work with questions such as Who am I? What can I do?, How might I use this in my life? In the late afternoons they work through these and other questions in their Journal/Workbook. The QuestTrek® results in a Personal Development Plan that every participant drafts.

The entire QuestTrek® is supervised by professionals.

Mountain Child Care uses aspects of U Theory (Dr C. Otto Scharmer) ( to facilitate the program. This theory is based on the experience that “all great discoveries come out of a great inner journey”.
