Dear Mountaineers and Outdoors Friends,
Please join us in this Great Event to Kilimanjaro for children’s education. This will be the most rewarding and unforgettable journey of your life and a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in life of a child in desperate need in Karatu Village, Tanzania.
With your help in this Event we can save some of these children that are living on streets to get an education and become agents of wholesome change for their society as well as the whole country. Right now these children have nothing and school is not an option.
