Climbing Kili for the Kids (Feb 2019)
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 to Wednesday, February 27, 2019
We are ecstatic to conduct our first ever Man Up and Go Adventure Trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa! This promises to be the trip of a lifetime for those who want to live out the abundant life Jesus talked about in John 10 alongside Man Up and Go in February of 2019. This trip is being billed as an "Executive" trip, but anyone who wants to raise the needed funds may participate.
We will first travel to Tanzania to take on the tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, at 19,341 feet. Our theme for this Adventure Trip is "A Father for Every Child." We're climbing to raise funds and awareness for the fatherless, and will document our trip along the way.
After our summit on Kilimanjaro, we will then hop on a plane to Uganda and spend several days visiting all of our projects there. From schools for the children, to the feeding program, to men's leadership, to vocational training for women, to the health clinic, and so much more, trip participants will see exactly why they're raising funds. The average age in Uganda is just 15 years old, and 80% of these do not have a committed, engaged father in the house.
On our way out of the country we will take a full day to take on the Nile River and its Class 5 rapids. Climbing Kilimanjaro and rafting the Nile are merely symbolic of our determination to fight for the fatherless and take out fatherlessness altogether. We believe children benefit in every way by the presence of a loving, committed father in the home. As such, we truly do want to see A Father for Every Child.
Qualifications: Trip participants must agree and adhere to Man Up and Go initiatives, policies, and procedures at all time. Most importantly, you must agree with Man Up and Go's Purpose Statement: To fight for the fatherless at home and abroad as Jesus commanded.
