The Gitonga Everest 2022 Project not-for-profit initiative seeking to get Kenyan hiker Gitonga Wandai to the top of Mount Everest and inspire a generation in Kenya to follow their dreams, explore the outdoors, and protect the environment.
BUILDING A LEGACY
Our mission is to build a lasting legacy: one that follows in the footsteps of Wangari Maathai and inspires positive change in Kenya and around the world.
As well as funding Gitonga's Everest bid, the 2022 project will fund and organise multiple initiatives - all of them in partnership with Kenyan or African-related enterprises doing incredible work that promote sustainability, the outdoors, or educational causes. These initiatives include:
1) Plant 10,000 trees in areas impacted by deforestation in Kenya in partnership with the Miti Alliance
2) Funding a mentorship programme for deaf children at Lugha Ishara school
3) Establish a young hikers and rock climbing programme in partnership with Mountain Club Kenya
We are incredibly grateful for any donation, no matter how big or small.
In the words of Wangari Maathai, we can all 'be the hummingbird' and every little bit goes a long way to giving us the belief that, together, we can make this happen.
Note: to avoid GoFundMe's sneaky attempt to get a 'TIP' from you, simply put the tip amount as £0.00.
