Climb Kilimanjaro for The Children’s Society


Every few days, I hear of someone climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for a cause. They go out, get a bunch of friends and family, raise money for the cause, and then go over and painfully make their way to Kilimanjaro’s summit, Uhuru. On the top, they hold out a flag or a piece of paper with the charities name on it. This week it’s The Children Society, a charity, that helps children with multiple disabilities and complicated health needs.

Read more about Steve Green’s charity to climb Kilimanjaro. While I think it’s great that people climb for a cause, I wish more of the proceeds could go toward local charities in Tanzania where Kilimanjaro is.

Yes, support for local charities is better, especially as the need is to great in Tanzania.

There’s a current (started 6 Jan 2007)fundraiser, “3 Peaks, 3 weeks”, where 10 women will climb Kili, Meru and another. All funds will go to three local charities, including the School of St Jude. See my blog. http://schoolstjude.blogspot.com/

They’ve raised a massive $220,000, so I reckon it is a bloody good thing!

Support for local charities is the way to go. I started a foundation called the Kilimanjaro Education Foundation (www.kef4kids.org) in order to help improve education and build school facilities. Our first charity climb was this past August and we raised $30K to build bathrooms and saved an entire school system from closing due to unsanitary conditions. We work with KIWISA one of the safest companies around and they are local. http://www.kiwisa.com
