We are happy to announce that we will be headed to Africa in February 2019 for the trip of a lifetime! We will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa, as part of a fundraising effort to support our initiatives worldwide in seeing a father for every child.
We plan on taking 20 folks – men and women both – up the mountain with an experienced trekking company. We’ll travel to Tanzania, adjust to the altitude at basecamp, and then take the RONGAI route on a 6-day climb.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa, and climbing it is on the bucket list of many adventure-seekers all around the globe. At Man Up, we imbibe a culture of “abundant living,” based on Jesus’ words in John 10:10, and this adventure is no different.
From there we will head to Uganda where we will spend 3-days visiting our ministry partners on the ground, physically witnessing the reason we are raising funds. The mountain is merely an excuse to support the children, men, and women Man Up serves.
We intend to cap the adventure on the Nile River’s Class 5 rapids. Uganda is called the “Pearl of Africa” for a reason, with its lush landscape, beautiful weather, and friendly people. It will be an exciting way to experience an Africa that many in the U.S. are unaware exists. All this while supporting the people Man Up serves. It’s going to be awesome!
