The Challenge

The challenge we have taken on is to get to the “Roof of Africa”. Yes, Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. The trek is scheduled for June 2016, and is expected to take us 6 days to get to Uhuru peak, which is the highest point of Africa at 5,895m (a little under 20,000ft). Over the 6 days we will go through lush rain forest and Colobus monkeys that live on its treetops, rocks and rough terrain, birds and wildlife, rare flora species and of course, ascend slowly to higher altitudes fighting the challenges of lesser oxygen and temperatures as we climb higher.

The Charity

The funds that we raise are in support of the charity "Friends of Kera" (www.friendsofkera.com) that provide help for Disadvantaged Children. The charity provides Wheel chairs, Hearing aids, Braille for visual impaired & organises sports events to bring children together and create awareness of their needs. The charity is run by dedicated volunteers who give their time, expertise, as well as raising funds towards helping & providing for poor, needy disabled and destitute children. The charity has recently completed a school refurbishment project in Moshi, Tanzania. Friends of Kera is also donating towards children's charity in UK i.e. monthly direct debits donations towards Save The Children and GOSH charity foundations. It does a truly remarkable service with whatever fund they have.

We are fortunate to have had many opportunities made available to us, but there are children in the world that do not have this luxury. This has encouraged us to contribute in a way that would significantly help under privileged children, through “Friends of Kera” charity.

For latest news and events of Friends of Kera, please visit their website - www.friendsofkera.com.  And don’t forget to re-visit after June 2016 to catch a glimpse of all the action that we will have captured.

The Donations

Your support of generous donations will have a big impact on improving the lives of Disadvantaged Children. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. No amount is too big or small. Every penny will help. All 100% of your contribution is used for charitable purposes by Friends of Kera, UK registered charity registered No 1144092. All who work for the charity are volunteers and no admin charge is taken.  Lots of effort, dedication and service is given by the volunteers. We are sincerely therefore counting on your support to help us support the amazing work Friends of Kera does.

The cost of our entire trip is fully self-funded and 100% of your contributions will be used for charitable purpose.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid (if you are UK tax payer) on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
