KGSA Foundation Climbs Mt. Kilimanjaro!

As many of you may know, the KGSA Foundation and Kibera Girls Soccer Academy staff have been working tirelessly to put together a fundraising strategy to finance the construction of the Boarding & Community Centre over the last year. Now we've done it.  The KGSA Foundation has partnered with 1,000 Shades of Green Tour and Safari Co., who has graciously organized a trip for 30 adventurous climbers to scale the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Mt. Kilimanjaro.  In addition to that, 1,000 Shades of Green is doing this all at no-profit on their end which mean that we can turn an experience of a lifetime into a great fundraising opportunity! 
Our goal is to raise $500,000 through small and large contributions, corporate sponsorship, and a climbing expedition. Each climber will raise $10,000 for the experience. Of that total, $8,000 will go directly to the construction of the new Boarding & Community Centre, while the remaining $2,000 covers all in-country expenses for the trip. The $240,000 raised by individual climbers, along with corporate sponsorship and individual gifts will allow us to “break ground” by October 2014. The complete duration of the trip will be from February 6th - 17th, 2015.

These 30 spots will go fast, register now!
