THE STORY:

 

19,341 feet. 42 miles. 8 days. 2 great causes.

Some climb Mount Kilimanjaro to make a dent in their bucket list. Many do it for for the challenge. Others for the stunning views. Those are my reasons, too, but the best motivation? Charity.

That's why this June I'll be trekking up Africa's highest peak on behalf of the following two non-profits. Both focus on providing children in nearby rural communities with educational opportunities that otherwise would not be available to them.

  • Project A.B.L.E. (Aid on Behalf of Literacy and Education): Whether it's opening a new school in Tanzania or creating scholarships in Kenya, the organization invests in projects that can lift families out of poverty through education. 
  • Komera: Dedicated to helping girls in Rwanda, this organization sponsors young scholars who are eager to pursue secondary education but lack the financial resources to do so.

Although they serve different parts of East Africa, Project A.B.L.E. and Komera share a belief that education can inspire positive social change.

Project A.B.L.E.’s Jifundishe Free Library, located in Ngongongare, Tanzania, exemplifies this. In addition to housing 4,000 books, it also hosts adult literacy classes, tutoring, a women’s micro-lending program and health clinics. I’ll be volunteering here the day before embarking for Kilimanjaro.

The library is just one example of how both charities are making a tangible impact. They both have so much more they want to accomplish—and that's why I'm climbing for a cause. Every dollar raised on this page will be split evenly between Project A.B.L.E. and Komera to support their missions.

In other words, your gift will help send kids to school, fund more scholarships and ensure children in some of the most destitute areas have resources that can transform their future.

Thanks so much for your support!

Eunice
