In August this year, I am part of a 15 strong team from Cushman & Wakefield which will set out on a gruelling trek to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest point in to promote and collect for our charity "Schools Around the World". (SATW)
The SATW Kilimanjaro trek is an opportunity for the individual participants to raise awareness and funds for SATW and to further develop relationships with their adopted schools and to progress SATW initiatives within each of their own countries. The SATW Kilimanjaro trek is expected to take approximately 10 days in early August and will take what is known as the ‘Lemosho Glades Route’ which gives a good progressive acclimatisation to the summit height of 5,895 m / 19,340 ft. The trek will be be led by British climber, Rhys Jones who reached the summit of Mount Everest on his 20th Birthday and claimed a World record as the youngest ‘Seven Summiteer’ (ie summiting the seven highest continental peaks). The trip will be co-led by C&W's own Harry Farthing, who was accompanied by Rhys on his Everest climb in 2006 which he undertook to launch SATW at an international level. http://kilimanjaro.satwdonate.org/
Schools Around the World is a registered charity which exists to increase the aspirations of young people worldwide. By partnering with schools wherever C&W operates around the world, SATW aims to help widen the horizons of young people (11-25 year olds) whose opportunities are limited by their domestic, social or financial circumstances. SATW aims to give these young people opportunities for improved education, help nurture their aspirations and promote their personal growth. Structured events, visits and work experience for students organised by SATW all help them realise their potential. You can gain a more detailed understanding at the website: http://www.cushwake.com/satw/
As for me - I cannot wait to get back to !!
For those who do not know me, here's a little background. After University I travelled through eastern Africa - Kenya ( trip to Lake Turkana overland through bandit country), Tanzania ( Tanzar Express, dodgy kebabs in Dar E Salam), Malawi ( outrageous amounts of Rum, snorkelling , climbing Mt Mulanje) Zambia ( not alot to say, Lusaka was not great) Zimbabwe ( walking safaris, 111 metre bungi over the Zambezi) Zanzibar. Then in 2000 I had a good trip with an attempted Kilimanjaro ascent via the "whiskey route" but was turned back when nearly there through bad weather. Then I hitchiked down from Kili to Mombassa and visited for a second time. Between 2003-5 I lived in Kampala, Uganda as Manager of Knight Frank running a great team and thoroughly enjoying the challenges and changes from the City!! Weekends were awesome too- National Parks and upcountry trips usually with my trusty driver Jackson and some friends. In 2006 was back in Africa, climbing the live volcano in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo "Nyiragongo" but since then I have switched more to mountain biking with recent trips in Jura, France; Huaraz, Peru between 3,500 - 4,700 metres; and Chapada Diamantina National Park in Brazil. So with lots of great travelling experiences and a huge appreciation of all things African. (except for malaria which I have had twice now)
As I work for C&W in Paris, I will be representing FRANCE, so I have already invested in some rather tacky polyester football t-shirts which I hope will be looser fitting after the next few months training and preparation. Mange tout mange tout. At the C&W Paris offices, we are welcoming the TRACKS school from Bradford (the UK adopted school) from July 19-22nd and will be introducing them to some of our clients to give an insight into the business world, as well as a few fun activities such as, bien sur, climbing the Eiffel Tower, a boat trip on the Seine and visiting the Musee d'Orsay for an "Introduction to the Impressionists" We are also in the process of finalising our own choice of a school to adopt- so I hope to be able to update on this soon!
