Mt. Kilimanjaro Climb for Girls' Education
In September, Hildur Valsdottir, an Icelandic medical student studying in Norway, set a goal to climb Kili and to raise money for The Girls Foundation of Tanzania. Having researched various NGO's, she chose us because she believes in giving needy girls the educational opportunities we provide.
While studying in med school, working a full-time job, and working out to build up her endurance for the climb, Hildur also motivated her family, friends, colleagues and community in Norwary to donate and she raised $9,700. After her climb, Hildur visited our girls at Henry Gogarty Secondary School. They asked her a million questions about her Kili climb, studies, and life goals. Her energy, aspirations and activism are inspirational for all of us.
Thank you Hildur for your awesome contributions and your friendship!
