We are still taking donations for this cause. You can start fundraising to educate orphaned children worldwide from now! The fundraising target for this trip is £400.

About Velocity

Velocity is ‘the nearest thing to flying’. As well as being the longest zip line in Europe it is also the fastest in the world.

This adrenaline fuelled attraction offers visitors a unique experience. With a mile, long zip line reaching speeds in excess of 100mph, riders will have a birds-eye view of the historic Bangor slate quarry and the spectacular North Wales coastline and beyond.


Orphans around the world

Education is a key that unlocks countless opportunities. It is a way out of poverty, a driving force for social change and an important aspect of personal development and welfare. Therefore, it is at the heart of the work we do.
Funds raised will go towards needy orphans around the world. This ranges from modest classrooms serving isolated communities that would otherwise not have access to schooling, to campuses serving large groups of poor and disadvantaged children.
As well as establishing our own schools, we run a varied range of educational programmes in several different areas. This gives those who may have missed out on educational opportunities or those who have specific educational needs, the support they require to progress in life.
Whether it be supporting specialised learning for deaf children in Somalia or creating the future Hafiz-ul Quran in Bangladesh, our work in education is all about providing opportunities that empower people to build a better future for themselves.
