Venari Partners have supported many great causes over the years, but we wanted to take our charitable efforts further than ever when we revamped our CSR policy in 2023. This led us to create and launch the first-ever Venari Partners Challenge, which took place in Petra, Jordan in October 2023. Here, we funded a group of deserving individuals to take part in an amazing five-day trek through the deserts of Jordan. 

 

Nominated by their friends and family through our open social media campaign, the trekkers were led by endurance athlete and world record holder, Sean Conway, who guided the group to their destination: the stunning Rose City of Petra.
