YCI Kilimanjaro Charity Climb

Are you looking for a Challenge? An adventure of epic proportions? At 5,895m above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro in the Republic of Tanzania is one of the highest freestanding mountains in the world and easily one of the most famous, with the snow-capped Uhuru Peak towering above the plains below.

From August 18 to 25, 2014 Youth Challenge International is offering a once in a life-time opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro for charity while raising funds for global youth development.

The YCI Kilimanjaro Charity Climb will bring together a committed group of diverse individuals who will experience the challenge and exhilaration of climbing Africa’s highest mountain. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the ultimate physical challenges, yet is also an opportunity to be inspired and to help change the lives of young people around the world.

Trek through stunning scenery in four diverse climate zones to reach the summit of the world's highest free-standing mountain, all while raising money for youth development programs that provide education and livelihoods to young people around the world.

And, if that wasn’t enough, there is no technical experience required to participate in the climb. Kilimanjaro is no walk around the park, but anyone who is fit and enjoys a challenge is welcome to sign up.

Are you ready for our 6-day trek?

Join YCI’s Kilimanjaro charity climb and help us support youth innovation to drive positive change.
