27 February 2019Kilimanjaro: The Ace Africa Climb

Feeling inspired by Comic Relief’s celebs climbing Kilimanjaro this week? Well, this could be you.

Ace Africa’s Tanzanian programmes sit right at the foothills of Kilimanjaro, so before taking on the great climb you will be able to meet the people who you are trekking for.

At the end of 2017 our incredible supporters at Vitol took on this very challenge.

11 staff from Vitol climbed Kilimanjaro for Ace and visited our projects in Tanzania. The Vitol Foundation matched their fundraising which resulted in raising a staggering $24,107. A word from one of the climbers:

“Eleven employees from Vitol’s London and Bahrain offices took on the challenge of Mt Kilimanjaro. It proved to be a very enjoyable and, at times, very arduous trek – I give you the Barranco Wall & summit night – but the scenery was stunning and the camaraderie great. Given all this, the team wanted to use the experience to support a local charity, Ace Africa. All the team made it to the summit and would like to thank colleagues, friends and family for their support and to thank Ace Africa for their hospitality in showing us the work they undertake.”
