Name Climb Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, for a good cause!

The Make A Difference (MAD) Kilimanjaro Fundraiser Climb will use a 7-day Machame route and enables hikers to send 22 children at the orphanage we support in Tanzania to a wonderful highly academic school in Himo, Tanzania. The hike is gorgeous and strong friendships, laughter and fun can be had along the way.

Our fundraiser climb provides the children with classes taught in English, nutritional meals and transport from the orphanage to school. Committing your time and money to this fundraiser will help ensure that our goal of education for orphaned children is met.
