A Purpose to Love - Kilimanjaro Climb
A BIG BIG Thank you!
The Kilimanjaro Team of 8 wonderful people raised 7000 pounds to create safe passage for more children to be taken off the streets.
On behalf of the children of the future we thank Lindsey Taylor and his team for their loving and courageous effort.
Blessings and thank you from all the Board and Management at Kipchamgaa

“8-day Alternative Lemosho Route. It is, in my opinion, the route with the best forest for the first day or so; the best views and scenery once you leave the forest; it takes you away from the crowds that are on some other trails, choosing instead to opt for quiet paths away from the crowds and the noise; and because it is the longest route, so it gives you more time to acclimatise - and thus it also has the highest success rate of any on the mountain.”
1 IT's GOING TO BE AMAZING! You will make a HUGE difference in the lives of children who will one day be the future of Kenya.
2 Fun, adventure and achievement. We will climb the easiest of the seven Summits.
No need for ropes, mountain gear, or climbing experience. The youngest person
to reach the summit was 7 and the eldest was 83. That does not mean Kilimanjaro
is risks-free. Rockslides and acute altitude sickness kill ten climbers on average each
year so an experienced guide is recommended.
3 The mountain is renowned for Inspiring transformation. It is a place for visions to happen and for us to learn to step out and do the impossible.
4 One of the world's greatest natural wonders: a snow covered mountain on the equator,
an ocean of green forest surrounded by dry savannah. Climbing Kilimanjaro is like
walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week. Its high altitudes have created
habitat for strange and unique life.
5 Great for your fitness and health.
6 Climbing Kilimanjaro contributes to a thriving local economy.
7 Easily accessible for a remote location. Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania, just south of the equator, next to the Serengeti. Regular flights fly nonstop from Europe to the Kilimanjaro airport.
8 Surprisingly pristine. Kilimanjaro is a hot spot for studying climate change.
“You can stand next to the ice and see the glaciers turning to vapor before your eyes.”
9 To do something for a worthy cause outside of ourselves.
10 Because we really need your help!
