GULF FOR GOOD

CHARITY CHALLENGE - KILIMANJARO, TANZANIA

14th to 23rd October 2022


CHALLENGE:

Gulf for Good challengers will return to Tanzania this year to take part in one of the world's most challenging mountain treks. They'll hike through rainforests, meadows, moorlands, via mountains huts, and up through 'The Saddle' before the final ascent to Uhuru Peak (5,895m).

CHARITY PROJECT:

Funds raised through this challenge will provide on-going support for children living at Larchfield Children’s Home.

In 2011, as a response to the desperate plight of Tanzanian children who have been abandoned by parents – either by reason of disease and death, divorce or other incapacity to maintain the family unit, a group of Tanzanian private citizens decided to register a children’s home and to call it, “Larchfield”.

Their aim is to provide a happy, safe and secure home for homeless children, to foster an environment where each child can flourish and develop to his or her full potential regardless of race, sex, religion or other defining characteristics. They would like to promote self-reliance by encouraging life sustaining water resource management and agricultural programmes supporting a nourishing staple diet and organic supplements from arable and non–arable farming; and to provide a focus for cultural community projects and to offer profitable skills and employment within the community.

FUNDRAISING:

Each participant is tasked with raising a minimum of AED5,000 (USD1,360) to support this project and, together, change the lives of these children and families.

This challenge is held in association with local not-for-profit Gulf for Good, whose purpose is to change the lives of underprivileged children around the world.

The breakdown of how donations are distributed are as follows:

- 75% of funds raised go to Larchfield Children's Home

- 15% of funds raised go to Gulf for Good (not-for-profit in the UAE and registered UK charity) for their sustainability

- 10% of funds raised go to International Humanitarian City for their emergency response work

    Fab cause Rob - if you can scamper up the Brecons I am sure Kili will be a synch and then you can chill on the beaches whilst having done a great thing to raise the money for a worthy lesser promoted cause. Rock It Rob!
