Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to build high school for Kenyan girls

In July 2018 I'm climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Girl's HS

My Fundraiser Details

Linda and I have supported Missions of Hope International for many years. We visited again this last fall and were blown away by the progress they have made. Over 15,000 kids are now part of their schools - amazing. They combine schooling with food and medical services and spiritual training to meet the full aspects of pulling kids from poverty and raising them up to be citizens of tomorrow. As they are getting larger numbers of high school and graduates, they are increasing sending kids to college and doing skills training. Essentially, building a future for Kenya, out of worst slums of poverty. This particular project is to build a High School for girls. Girls in particular are susceptible to be prevented from education, falling back to tribal patterns of being married off and child bearing at very young ages and continuing the terrible cycle of poverty. Learn more about MOHI at http://mohiafrica.org I'll be doing the climb with my friends Keith Ham (long term missionary in Kenya), Scott Bajtos (co worker at VMware) and Joel Need (CEO Afterburner). Together I hope we blow away our fund raising objectives. I'm thrilled with the potential to click off a bucket list item but doing it for the noblest of causes - bringing hope and life to the worlds most vulnerable. Truly changing the face of eternity for these kids. Please join me in supporting this effort. Linda and I support many philanthropic and missional works - this one is the best! Blessings, Pat. *Remember to ask your company if they have a matching donation program. Just think, your donation will be doubled for this amazing cause!
