Mwalimu Nyerere Charity Climb 2008

From 18 - 25 July 2008 I will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for the construction of a dormitory for students of Chief Edward Wanzagi Girls' Secondary (CEWGS) School located at Butiama, Tanzania, as well as for the Village Education Project Kilimanjaro (VEPK) located at Mshiri on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

My route will take me from Lemosho, Southern Circuit, Barafu, Uhuru peak, Camp below Mawenzi peak, and down to Marangu.

The construction cost for the dormitories is estimated to be Sh.200 million, while the target I hope to raise for VEPK is £STG5,000 (approximately Sh.11,823,000).
