Kilimanjaro Climb 2007 & 2009

Overview of the mountWalking towards the mountWentworth Africa Foundation has lead two group charity climbs up Mount Kilimanjaro, the first being in 2007 and the second in 2009. Here are what a couple of our participants had to say about their experience:

“It was an incredible adventure that I will remember for the rest of my life.” – Chlan Grant

“It was such a positive experience and one of the proudest moments of my life.” – Kelly Shaw

Wentworth Africa Foundation raised close to $400,000 through the two Kilimanjaro climbs and used the funds to build an administration block, dormitory, 5 classrooms, staff house, dining hall, kitchen, and lavatories at the Mnolela secondary school in Lindi in Southern Tanzania.

Mount Kilimanjaro is located completely within Tanzania, about 340 km south of the equator.   Most of Kilimanjaro is located within the Kilimanjaro National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
