Wings Of Kilimanjaro : The Adventure Of A Lifetime : Adventure Travel | Adventure Sports | Extreme Paragliding

Each child represents a future, the future of the community, and the future of Tanzania.

Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. It has over 1,000,000 children who have been orphaned as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and many thousands who live on the streets. These orphans are often malnourished and at times go hungry due to a lack of in adequate food supplies (nutrition) and access to clean water. Others have stopped attending school due to a lack of the money to pay for tuition or basic school supplies or in the case of older girls the cultural requirement to care for their younger siblings. Taking in to consideration that the average daily income in Tanzania is less than a dollar, education can be simply seen as an unattainable luxury.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

- Nelson Mandela    

Wings of Kilimanjaro is working together with The One Foundation to construct a primary school in a large, yet completely impoverished remote Masai community in the Manyara region, which was estimated to have less than a 1% literacy rate. The school has been agreed in consultation with the community and on plans approved by the District Education Officer.

Photos of our school building progress can be found on the Wings of Kilimanjaro Facebook page.
