As part of an organised group and accompanied by my brother we completed a sponsored climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Amani Children’s Charity Tanzania. Being Africa’s tallest mountain with an altitude of 5895m the ascent proved very challenging, the climb took 7 days, trekking for 49 hours over a distance of 70 kilometres before we summited.
Once finished, we visited the Amani children’s home. It really put things into perspective how fortunate we are and what we take for granted every day compared to these unfortunate children.
We were very proud to have raised a total of £7,615.83 for the charity. Amani helps to take the homeless and parentless street children of Tanzania off the streets and provide them with a safe home environment and schooling.
