About the Event

Climb Kilimanjaro for charity in 2018…join a team of outdoor enthusiasts who are passionate about making a difference in the world! We are now taking applications for our 2018 Climb for Clean Water team. Together we will summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, for the cause of providing safe water and sanitation to people in Africa.

We will be climbing the 7-day Machame Route with Climb Kili from Saturday, June 23rd – Friday, June 29th. You can also join us for a 2-day safari after the climb for an additional $750.

The 2018 Climb for Clean Water is over, but registration is now open for 2019!

Climb the Mountain. Change the World.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is the adventure of a lifetime. But when you climb with Lifewater, you make a lasting difference by providing safe water for an entire village in Africa.

Each climber/household commits to raise enough funds for one well (USD$6,000). Together with your community, you’ll raise funds and raise awareness about the global water crisis. You can do it! In 2017, each of our climbers reached (or surpassed!) their fundraising goals. Lifewater will provide all the support you need along the way.

“I’m grateful for this trip that changed my life and thousands of others who will receive clean water.” ~Chris Ainsworth, 2017 Climber
