Our amazing cause
The whole ethos of Giving Africa is very much centred around an exchange of wealth. Whilst in these remote communities there is a huge amount of opportunity to grow our immense leadership qualities through spending time with some of the most outstanding leaders. In return you and I can show our support through raising much needed funds for our educational and entrepreneurial projects for one of the worlds poorest countries.
Here are just a few of the testimonials that our recent climbers have said about their life changing experiences :
“A time of struggle and some of the most beautiful and formative moments of my life. Coming to Kili can only grow you in character and personality, everyone on this trip will tell you it’s been 100% worth while” – Graeme Wadhams from Curchods Estate Agents
“There are so many positives. You strip back everything and we’ve had to dig so deep. You just don’t realise how far you’re going to push yourself and how far you can push yourself to do something like this” – Andy Dwyer, Company Director at Riverford Surrey
“From one end of the scale to the other and everything in-between is an emotion that helps you to recreate yourself – Holly Blencowe, Marketing at Water Wellbeing Tonbridge
Through working for Giving Africa, many of us in the charity have been privileged to spend time with outstanding leaders on Mt. Kilimanjaro and other remote communities, and their appreciation in Giving Africas’ recognition of how important this is to them brings a level of significance we all have the right to experience
We work with one of the the worlds best challenge companies and their focus is to make this adventure above and beyond all expectations…and they succeed! Here’s a link to their brochure that tells you a little more about life on the mountain
