conquer kilimanjaro with dig deep challenges

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all-time great achievements. It is the largest freestanding mountain in the world and the trek encompasses terrains from jungle to glacier. Reaching the summit and watching the sun rise over the vast African plains truly is the experience of a lifetime.

The sponsorship raised by fundraisers completing this epic challenge will fund Dig Deep’s projects and help transform lives by providing access to clean water, sanitation and menstrual hygiene training to school children in East Africa. Make a change by climbing Kilimanjaro ethically with Dig Deep.

reach everest base camp with hope for children

The Everest Base Camp trek is probably one of the most famous in the world, one that every keen trekker should consider taking at some point in their lives. It is without a doubt one of the most challenging treks to take on, but the sheer thrill and sense of achievement you experience as you arrive at the base of Mount Everest is hard to equal.
