One iconic mountain. Thousands of lives transformed.
Kilimanjaro. It’s the highest mountain in Africa, and could be the challenge of a lifetime. We’re looking for courageous volunteers to put their endurance to the test and trek up to the 19,000ft peak for a great cause.
This week and a half trip is taking place on 4th – 13th December 2017, with 7 days of trekking. You’ll make memories that will last forever, push yourself to the limit, and know that long after you’ve completed the challenge, generations of families will live safer, better lives because of your adventure.
Demand is high for this unforgettable trip, and with just 20 places available you’ll need to book early to get your place. Read the info pack to find out all about the Kilimanjaro trek.
How much does it cost?
To book your place you will need to pay a £399 deposit. You then need to raise £4,500 before the trip. There are loads of fun and creative ways to fundraise, so use your imagination. You'll also get comprehensive support from our fundraising team from the moment you sign up until the end of the trek.
Where will my fundraising go?
The money you raise will be transforming the lives of thousands of people by building deep water wells in water-scarce countries. Dirty water is one of the world’s biggest killers, and can trap entire communities in a cycle of poverty. These wells are life-savers in places where the water is deep underground and can't be reached by hand pump wells. The drilling process is slow and difficult – but once the wells are built, they will provide safe water for many years, bringing the gift of life to whole villages for generations to come.
Each trekker who raises the £4,500 target will get to have their own deep water well named after them, or dedicated in the name of a family member with a plaque bearing a name of your choice. These wells will last for generations, so they will provide a lasting memorial to a cherished loved one, as well as giving safe, clean water to families far into the future.
How fit do I need to be?
You don’t need to be an athlete to take part, but you will need to train and reach a good level of fitness before you go, to be sure that you can manage the distances and altitudes involved. We'll be organising a number of group training treks to help get your body ready for strenuous uphill walking.
