Myself and an amazing team of 11 women will embark on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to trek up to 19,341ft. for children in Rwanda. Why? Because we have a huge heart for “the land of a thousand hills" and want nothing less than to help give back in every way possible!
Our Kilimanjaro 2020 team will help raise support and awareness for Africa New Life's Food Program! With a team goal of $170,000 they will be able to provide more than 200,000 meals for kids in Rwanda.
Africa New Life's Food Program helps to provide school lunches to children in Rwanda who otherwise would get little or no food to eat. These children work hard and are dedicated to doing well in school so they can improve their families' situations and give back to their country when they grow up. But it’s hard to learn or grow without food!
An average meal in Rwanda costs $0.83, which means $25 provides food for a child for a month (30 meals). Feeding children and families is an extension of the gospel and provides students the stability and consistent nutrition necessary to complete their education.
