Trekking Kili for the kids

We are a motley crew heading to trek Kilimanjaro this July and bring some funds and supplies to the kids of Makuyuni Primary School in the Kilimanjaro region.
The school has 440 pupils who live in extreme poverty & are currently in dire straits due to a regional drought. Our aim is to fund one meal per day per child for half a a year.

The cost of the food for the 440 pupils is currently 60,500TZS (roughly €25.60) per day for maize, beans and sugar. €4672 would ensure that each one of these kids were guaranteed ONE meal each a day for 6 months if we can raise this...or one full year if we could raise €9344...imagine! This would mean that the headmistress and teachers can get on with teaching the pupils as they are currently going for days on end with no food which is interfering with their education. 

PLEASE NOTE  that each climber is funding 100% the cost of the trip & climb themselves so EVERY CENT (except GoFundME fees) raised is going straight to the headmistress of Makuyuni School.

As part of the fundraising campaign, Jennifer, Catherine and Kirsten from Redlane Boutique are doing the Waterford Viking Marathon. If you've arrived here through a link from Redlane, you've come to the right place!

You can donate here, NOTHING is too small.
THE PRICE OF YOUR MORNING COFFEE WILL FEED NEARLY 50 KIDS FOR ONE DAY!

Thanks for reading,
Carol, Vinny, Ellen, Catherine, Chris, Johann & Bob xx
