THE STORY:

Steve Obbayi will be the first Kenyan to climb Everest. He's climbing not just for himself, not just for his home country of Kenya, but for the 2.5 billion people who do not have access to a toilet, a basic need that most of us take for granted.  Sanitation is an orphaned cause that often left behind at the bottom of the global to-do list, even though it affects everything, including our health, education,  environment, economies, and particularly women and girls.

We can change this--we are changing this. On March 27th, I will meet Steve and a group of friends, including my good friends Dan Fredinburg and John Bauché, in Kathmandu to set out on our #Trek4Toilets to raise the banners of Sanitation for All at Everest Base Camp.  Steve,Toby and Dan will then take our flag to the top of Everest, while we call on governments around the world to take sanitation to the top of their agendas and step up their commitments to end open defecation by 2025.

But this expedition is about more than just raising awareness. With your support, we're launching the #Trek4Toilets CrowdRise campaign to raise funds for life-saving sanitation and hygiene programs around the world, starting with a hygiene project in Mathare, a slum in Steve's home town of Nairobi, Kenya. Our goal is to provide hygiene training and tools to at least 2 people for every meter Steve climbs on Everest. At 8,848, that's more than 18,000 people who we can support in living healthier, happier lives.

 

Let's get climbing. Let's do epic shit.
