#JustClimb

Personal message

I want to inspire our next generation of leaders to summit their everyday peaks in education and in all aspects of their lives.

I am an avid and passionate adventurer and my dream is to positively impact my community and environment through summiting significant peaks around the world. In 2017, I journeyed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and reached Everest Base Camp and now I am tackling the highest mountain in Europe, Mount Elbrus in Russia, to help raise funds for the Dlala Nje Foundation. I am fortunate to be able to call the green building industry my chosen career path, a practice that has an important role to play in safeguarding our shared future. Through the #JustClimb campaign I hope to merge my three major passions in life: mountains, sustainability and inspiring our youth.

MY GOAL

As I continue to summit mountains, I want to inspire our next generation of leaders to summit their everyday peaks in education and in all aspects of their lives. My goal is to motivate our youth to take their dreams to extraordinary heights. I want to encourage them to not think too much about the difficulties they face along the way but to keep focused on the end goal and #JustClimb.

Help me make a difference and donate to this campaign! ALL proceeds raised will go towards the expansion and renovation of Dlala Nje’s children’s community centre.

DLALA NJE

Dlala Nje, a Zulu phrase meaning “just play,” is an NGO based in the heart of Hilbrow, Johannesburg, South Africa. Dlala Nje is currently expanding and have acquired additional space to cater for the growing demands of children needing a safe and uplifting place to go. One of the key focuses of this new space is to ensure that it is an environment that serves for a variety of purposes and needs for children of all ages. This will be achieved by placing significant importance on the long-term sustainability of the community centre through designing a space that promotes the health, well-being and productivity of the children who use the centre. 

WHY I CHOOSE MOUNTAINS

I choose mountains to achieve a higher perspective on who I am and what I’m striving to be. I am humbled by their greatness, beauty and serenity. Mountains make me feel free. They bring me hope. Choosing mountains has changed my whole life, no matter how difficult the path in front of me appears to be, I choose to #JustClimb.

THE CLIMB

Mount Elbrus is a dormant volcano in the Caucasus Main Range, the European border with Asia in southern Russia. Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain in Europe, and the tenth most prominent peak in the world. The mountain has two main summits- the western summit at 5642m and the eastern summit at 5621m. The first ascent of the west peak was in 1829 by a Russian army team and the east in 1874 by an English team.

Dates: 9th- 18th of June; I will be summiting both Elbrus summits on the 15th of June 2018.

Dlala Nje Foundation

Dlala Nje Foundation Logo

Dlala Nje aims to challenge perceptions and to create opportunities. At our Dlala Nje Community Centre we offer a safe, diverse and engaging environment. We want to provide a place where kids can experience new things and awaken their passions. A place where talent is nurtured and confidence is built. We run inner-city immersions and experiences in some of our city’s most misunderstood areas. These immersions and walks have allowed Dlala Nje to build and run a community center aimed at providing a safe learning environment for children and youth.
