Hike4Purpose - Affirm the Dignity of Young Girls

Personal message

Hike4Purpose is made up of three entrepreneurs that have a shared vision to make a difference in our communities. We have decided to put our lives on the line by climbing one of the highest and most dangerous mountain peaks in the world to bring awareness and to alleviate the problem girls face daily.

Why do we want to Summit Mount Kilimanjaro?
The Trek 4 Mandela challenge is a one of a kind, a collaborative initiative supported by the Imbumba Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Foundation. It is one of 3 holistic programmes run by the Imbumba Foundation to help the girl child shape her future. The initiative is aimed at creating awareness about the plight facing young girls during menstruation and who do not have the funds to buy sanitary pads to keep them in school.

• Create awareness on the plight facing young girls during their monthly cycles
• Create programmes through Caring4Girls to demystify puberty in our society
• Raise funds to procure sanitary pads to keep them in school

We are hoping to have the funds raised by 17 May 2019

Funds raised are aimed at purchasing sanitary pads and enabling young girls to continue their education without interruption as to affirm their dignity as human beings.

It also covers;
R8 600 - Return flights from OR Tambo International to Kilimanjaro International Airport via Nairobi.
R15 000 - Kilimanjaro gear and equipment
R12 892.50 - Mount Kilimanjaro Park fees
R2 000 - Kilimanjaro expedition Fees
R8 779.48 - Five training sessions
R12 892.50 - Expedition leader’s fees
R15 000 - Caring4Girls contribution
R9 946.04 - Project administration fee

It is a life-changing impact and the value add to peoples lives is priceless. Just seeing the smiles on these girls faces is gratitude enough. Making a difference to these girls lives by making sure that they do not miss a day of school because of their monthly cycles.
