Climbing for Children & Building for Children

Climb Kilimanjaro/Build a school classroom in Tanzania

Jan 27 2013

Feb 27 2013

After the success of the partnership with ‘Destiny of a Child’ in 2011, ACE Africa are thrilled to be partnering with this fantastic charity once again.
Destiny of a Child and ACE Africa are offering two exciting challenges to take place in Tanzania. Choose between the following:
Climbing for children – Mount Kilimanjaro Summit Trek (5,896m/19,340feet) following the Machame route. Join a group to scale the heights of Africa’s highest mountain! This route is considered the prettiest but slightly more challenging. Accompanying each group will be a leader, doctor and number of guides and porters. Climbing Kili is a once in a life time experience with testing conditions including temperature changes, from freezing cold at night and hot sun during the day, oxygen levels at the summit half of those at sea level. However these challenges are more than made up by the spectacular views at the summit! The project is limited to 3 groups of 20 climbers.
Building for Children – Build a school classroom in Tanzania
If you prefer to stay closer to ground the other exciting unique opportunity on offer is to participate in building six Child Welfare Centres in primary schools where ACE Africa has Child to Child Health clubs. The group who take up the challenge will be supported by local builders. The classroom built by the team will specifically be used as the Child to Child club room, as a library and a place where children can do their homework. No special skills are required to take part. This project is limited to 6 teams of 6 people.
Each participant will be required to raise a minimum of £1,500 in sponsorship for either of these challenges in addition to covering the cost of participating.
