Challenges in the UK

At 5,895m (19,341ft), Mount Kilimanjaro is the fourth highest of the world’s Seven Summits, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. On 20 January 2017, push yourself to the limit by climbing to the roof of Africa in a challenge that will impact your life and the lives of those living in poverty.  

You'll experience Compassion’s programmes in Tanzania and meet the children and young adults whose lives have been changed by sponsorship.

TRIP INFORMATION

Dates: Friday 20 – Saturday 28 January 2017
Cost: £2,975 


Kilimanjaro Summit

 

YOUR FUNDRAISING TARGET

A minimum of 2 children sponsored (or £2,000 in funds or a combination of both).

Knowing the incredible impact one-to-one sponsorship has on children in poverty, we ask that you aim to find sponsors for 2 children.

For every new sponsored child, your fundraising target will be reduced by £1,000. That way, if you find sponsors for 2 children you’ve achieved your goal.

All the donations raised will enable 40 expectant mother and babies, 12,200 children and young people and 2,460 adults to take part in a HIV education and testing campaign. Find out more >
