Arrive in Kenya Climbs Kilimanjaro

$2,275 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 6 months

THE GOAL IS SIMPLE

On January 6th we (Nell Pollak, a volunteer at Arrive in Kenya  and Registone Ong'esa, a once street youth now thriving high school student) will set out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for the non-profit that's changed both of our lives - Arrive in Kenya . Kilimanjaro has been summited before, but rarely has been done by a Kenyan soul who has fought every step of the way to get there.  For a child who lived in the shadows of addiction, homelessness, and without parents, this achievement is almost unheard of - and that is what makes this story so special. 

AND THE BEST PART?!
We want you to join us for this journey. Please consider donating and helping us further the efforts of a non-profit who is making a real difference in Kenyan youths' lives. 

WHAT IS ARRIVE IN KENYA ?  
Arrive generates positive action and sustainable advancement to empower children in impoverished regions of the world by providing shelter, promoting good health, offering access to education and giving at risk children tools and opportunities for a successful, independent, and fulfilling life.

WHERE WILL THE DOLLARS GO? 
The money we raise with your support will be split two ways-
1. $5,000 will be allocated purely to break even on the costs to make the trip happen and give Registone the trip of a lifetime.

             -Registone's ID to cross the border into Tanzania 
             -Transport to and from Arusha, Tanzania 
             -2 nights in hotel before/after climb + food
             -All National Park gate fees 
             -All camping fees 
             -Kilimanjaro rescue team fees 
             -Qualified mountain guide, assistant guides, porters and cooks 
             -Breakfast, lunch and dinner on the mountain 
             -Tents, camp tables and camping chairs 
             -Climbing permit 
             -Complete First Aid Kit (for use in emergencies) 
             -Government Climbing Taxes 
             -Water for the hike 
             -Tips for guides, porters and cook 
             -Yellow Fever vaccination
            - All hiking/trekking gear 
            -Snacks, personal medicine and water purifying tablets 
            - Celebratory beer at the end of the climb! (fyi Registone is 18- drinking age in Tanzania is 18) 

2. the remaining $25,000 (and any funds remaining from the above allocation) will be sent directly to Arrive in Kenya  to make further differences in the lives of Kenyan youth.
