We work with local partners in Africa to achieve equal rights for disabled youth


Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The decision to do the climb was only made on the 14th September 2010 so we have a mammoth task ahead of us to raise as much money as we can - please do help!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

I have chosen AbleChildAfrica and the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro because I want to make a sustainable difference to our next generation. I have good reason to recognize the importance of education for ALL children; it empowered me to make my own unique journey in life. The children supported by this charity desperately need inclusion. A disabled child in Africa is too often without hope. Enabling these children means enrichment, quality of life, and reduced dependency for them, their families and communities. My challenge is to climb a mountain – your challenge is to help me make a difference.

Kilimanjaro, “The Roof of Africa”, is the highest mountain on the continent. This November I will be attempting to climb it! This climb will have a difference. On this extraordinary journey I will be joined by young disabled people from the projects who will be sponsored to take part. 

In addition to raising much needed funds for AbleChildAfrica, the aim, will be to show that Disability is not Inability and that young disabled people have both rights and potential just like anyone else.

The money you donate could help pay for:

    - Disabled Children to go to school
    - Disabled Children to receive life changing surgery
    - Training for young disabled people which will greatly improve their chances of getting long term employment
