KI has now assisted more than 400 climbers from 50 countries to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, including youth leaders, victims / survivors of crime, reformed criminals, members of civil society, United Nations officials, Public Sector Reps, CEOs, celebrities and journalists.
The KI climbs have brought together women and men from all walks of life, uniting them beyond their backgrounds, as they attempt to overcome a single adversity and reach the summit of Africa.
