Top of the World

Monday 28th October / presented by Andy Snelling

It may have the highest mountain in the world but Nepal has one of the lowest rates of education.

Just over half the population has never attended school.

An Australian initiative aims to improve the education and future of the Nepalese.

It’s called Base Camp 2013 and aims to raise $20 for very metre of elevation on the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp.

That’s over 100 000 dollars. The Co-founder of this initiative is Ron Mizen.

The West Australian journalist Steve Pennells supports the cause – as you might expect from a man whose spent much of his career in danger zones and troubled countries

- and taken on Australia’s richest woman and lived to tell the tale.

Steve also has a Gold Walkley Award for awesome journalism, the United Nations Media Peace Prize, a few WA Media Awards.

Ron and Steve joined Andy Snelling earlier today to explain the Basecamp 2013 initiative.
