Summit the famous Mt Kilimanjaro and support a local literacy project with Empower Local Schools – Tanzania
This is the alternative Mount Kilimanjaro experience. Not only will you summit one of the world's most iconic mountains, but you will get the chance to take part in a local literacy project at the foothills of the mountain. 1000’s of people every year use the great Kilimanjaro climb as a way of fundraising for overseas charities. 1000’s of starving children and marginalised families witness this on a daily basis. At the foothills of Kilimanjaro lie local schools desperately in need of help, where many 14 year-olds still cannot read or write. We plan to reinvent these rural schools and turn them into desirable and successful places. Instead of fundraising 1000’s of dollars or pounds for rich western charities, on this Mount Kilimanjaro trek you will be fundraising for the people of the mountain.
