Help us raise $20,000 for the Treasures of Africa Children's Home!
Learn more about how Paul and Deane are cycling coast to coast across Northern England to raise funds for the orphanage in April 2010.
Paul and Deane are happy to announce they have successfully completed their climb up the mountain! For a look back at the journey, read their daily updates they sent in from their satellite phone.
In support of the Treasures of Africa Children's Home and its commitment to the children of Tanzania, businessmen Paul Toomey and Deane Toler of Geographic Solutions are on a mission to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and raise funds for the orphanage. At nearly 20,000 feet high, Mt. Kili is the tallest mountain in the world that can be climbed without technical experience or equipment.
Paul and Deane need to raise a minimum of $20,000 in donations as they take on Mt. Kilimanjaro in their nine-day charity climb challenge. The money raised will help the Treasures of Africa Children's Home defray costs to not only feed, clothe, and provide a home for these orphans, but to provide an education that will enable each child to develop and be successful in a high tech world.
The Treasures of Africa Children's Home was officially opened in March 2007. Located in Moshi at the foot of beautiful Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, this home provides loving care, nutritious food, and education in a Christian family environment for orphaned and abandoned children.
The home was opened in direct response to the high incidence of AIDS and orphaned children in the nation of Tanzania. UNICEF currently estimates the number of orphans within Tanzania to be over 2 million.
