I'm climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this August with Dig Deep to provide clean water and proper sanitation systems for the rural communities in Kenya.

Hi everyone, embarking upon the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro would be one of the best ways I can possibly challenge myself to achieve 2 goals:

1) To raise awareness on the importance of clean water or rather the lack thereof in the rural communities in Kenya. We, as a community often take this access that we have to clean water as a given, and yes, it shouldn't be a privilege that only part of the world is entitled to, so let's all contribute to bring such an essential right to those communities. 

2) I have always loved adventures and climbing Mount Kili would be the absolute challenge as it will undoubtedly push me beyond my limits as I have never done something quite comparable to climbing Mount Kili. This presents to me an opportunity to use my passion for adventures to serve a community in a small yet meaningful manner, I hope.

Ultimately, I am sure it will be a humbling experience so please donate generously as every contribution, no matter the amount, counts! 

I thank you for your beautiful souls!

Climb Kilimanjaro for Clean Water 2017

Kilimanjaro is one of the toughest treks in the
world. The tallest free standing mountain on the planet stands at 5,895m. Our
fundraisers are undertaking this mammoth challenge to raise money for water and
sanitation projects in Kenya. 10 million Kenyans lack access to safe water,
held back by disease and disrupted education. By sponsoring a climber today you
can break the needless cycle of poverty.
