CLIMB FOR ALBINISM

Mountain climbing is an amazing sport that many people around the world can enjoy. Not only will it help you with being more fit, keep your heart healthy, and elevate your mood, but you will also get to see some of the most amazing views ever! You can always take a lot of pictures when you get to the top of your next mountain and have those memories with you for life. You could document your experience by providing writing services. Writing about your hobbies, like mountain climbing, can be a very rewarding experience. You can tell all sorts of stories through your writing. Just sit back, relax and let the words come to you. Ensure that the language you’re using is appropriate for your target audience. Look out for any mistakes. Maybe you’ll have to do some editing – and then you can post your essays online! What are you waiting for?


There are quite a few people with albinism. And the summer of 2021 broke records in temperature - the average temperature on Earth broke all the maximum values for the entire temperature measurement period. And all this was superimposed on the global quarantine, and no climbing could be done. And it turned out that people with albinism did not have the opportunity to go out, which, of course, influenced their lives. After all, this feature can also be in children who need to attend school. One of the possible solutions to this problem may be the replacement of classical education or the use of jointly online courses, with the help of which people can receive an education regardless of the location and mobility of the student. Platforms for creating such courses already exist, they are not without drawbacks, but it is a matter of time. Perhaps, after some time, absolutely anyone will be able to receive high-quality education anywhere in the world.


CLIMBING KILIMANJARO ON OCTOBER 1ST TO DRAW THE WORLD’S ATTENTION TO THE CHALLENGES WE FACE EVERY DAY

TRANSFORM

CHALLENGING THE STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH ALBINISM

AMPLIFYING OUR VOICES FROM AFRICA’S HIGHEST PEAK

INSPIRE

OPENING LIMITLESS DOORS TO PEOPLE WITH ALBINISM

OUR GOALS

SUMMIT MT. KILIMANJARO

Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania has been conquered by thousands of climbers, but never by a team like this. In September 2018, with the support and leadership of Elia Saikaly and his team at FindingLife, our team of African women with albinism will climb to the highest peak on the continent.

CREATE A GLOBAL AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

The climb is a global platform to amplify our voices from Africa’s highest peak to challenge the stigma associated with albinism. We will be speaking not just for ourselves but also for the future generations of people with albinism, so that they may be given equal opportunities, dignity and respect.

SHARE OUR JOURNEY WITH THE WORLD

Our campaign includes the creation of a documentary, real-time social media content produced from the mountain, live hits, a fundraising campaign supported by our charitable partners and a shared experience with the public on via traditional social media channels.

EMPOWER OTHERS TO DO THE SAME

Despite the hardship many have faced we are powerful, capable and inspirational role models to women around the world. Simply by being women with albinism living in Africa, we have climbed mountains before. Now we are conquering Mount Kilimanjaro to open limitless doors and show others that they can do the same.
