Help Gitonga get to Everest in 2022

Gitonga Wandai dreams of inspiring his children, his nation, and the world to follow their passions and their dreams by summiting Mount Everest in 2022. In doing so, he would become the first black Kenyan to climb Everest. 

Help him achieve his dream. 

NOTE: To avoid GoFundMe's sneaky attempt to get a 'TIP' from you, simply put the tip amount as £0.00 :) 

Any money raised over the $65,000 target will be donated to a conservation initiative Gitonga is involved in to plant 500,000 trees across Kenya.

- It costs, on average $65,000 (£50,000) to summit Everest. This pays for life-saving equipment, oxygen, an expert guide, a team of sherpas, and park fees
- It can take up to 60 days to reach the top of Everest from arrival in Nepal
- You can view 'GITONGA', a film about Gitonga's bid for Everest 2022, on Sunday 31 May, 6pm, NTV Kenya.
