Join us for an unforgettable adventure on Mt Kilimanjaro and help Fresh Business Thinking readers build a school in one of the poorest regions on earth Burkina Faso, West Africa.

We have teamed up with motivational speaker and founder of the Giving Africa charity Craig Goldblatt to recruit a group of UK business owners and managers in order to climb one of the highest freestanding mountains in the world for a very worthwhile charity.

In addition to the motivation and satisfaction of knowing that your efforts will bring real benefits to some of the poorest children in the world you will also have the opportunity of undertaking a personal challenge in the company of like-minded business people.

To understand the children of Burkina Faso and how desperate their situation is please visit the Giving Africa site and watch the video on the home page. It will inspire and encourage you to take on the challenge and provide these children with an opportunity of education — something we consider a basic human right and take for granted!

The trip is being organised on behalf of Giving Africa by Action Challenge UK Ltd and is fully bonded under ATOL number 6296.

To take part in this expedition you need to raise a minimum of £3500 of sponsorship money of which £1750 pays for the logistics of the trip and the rest goes straight to the charity.

For more details on the climb and to complete a booking form please visit 'Conquer Mt Kilimanjaro' or email Katie@freshbusinessthinking.com
