Making a Difference One Climb at a Time

February 18, 2014 at 5:07 pm Leave a comment

Mount Kilimanjaro has always had a harrowing and inspiring effect on the individuals who reach its summit. That inspiring effect often carries over to inspire others who make their own trek to the mountain for a Mt. Kilimanjaro tour. The effect comes full circle when it spills over to improve the lives of African communities and communities around the world.

To show you what we mean, we’ve collected some information on upcoming charity efforts that include Mt. Kilimanjaro tours.

The Endurance of People Power

A Mt. Kilimanjaro tour always begins the same way: you leave behind everything you know, and perhaps, have grown to rely on.

That list includes:

  • Vehicles
  • Beds
  • Home-cooked meals
  • Luxuries of modern life

Yes, you will have a bed roll, and yes, you will have meals, but the experience – the climb itself – will be powered by people.

That power has celebrated the survival of cancer. It has raised money for ovarian cancer, better cancer care in Africa and around the world; it has shown people that life after cancer, or in spite of it, is possible. It has raised awareness for malaria, diabetes, and better maternity care. It has supported the likelihood of the African people, working mothers, and children in need. That’s what a year’s worth of 19,000 foot climbs can do.

Kilimanjaro remains a symbol of hope and change in the life and circumstances of others. It also offers the unique opportunity for you to see where your donations go.

There is No “Invisible Pocket”

There have been many times that giving to a cause meant nothing more than adding your money to a collective pool and claiming a tax write-off at the end of the year. Once that money is out of your hands, you don’t see where it goes or witness the good it does.

A Mt. Kilimanjaro tour is different. There’s tangible proof of how your donations are making a difference with every climb. From campaign t-shirts worn every day to video diaries and documentaries, you can see the difference and the impact contributors and climbers are making on a daily basis.

Disconnected donating is a thing of the past. In fact, it’s not uncommon for the climbers themselves to spend extra time contributing to charities in Tanzania.

Over the years, climbers have spent days helping out in the local orphanage, touring the maternity ward, and discussing upcoming building projects within the community. Donations and inspiration make it possible.

Zara Tours is honored to represent and support charitable causes through Kilimanjaro climbing tours. A portion of the cost of every climb is donated to local organizations and community outreach programs. In addition, we’re happy to spread the word and add support to climber-inspired initiatives that make a difference in the world around us.

Come, climb, get inspired.
