Climbing Aconcagua for School4Life

School4Life is a Swiss charity providing free and high quality education to needy orphans and disadvantaged children in Kimilili, Kenya, and operates independently from governmental, political and religious parties, working closely with and for the local community, You can find more information on School4Life on!

My name is Miriam Hofbauer and together with my brother I am planning to climb Aconcagua - the highest mountain outside Asia with 6,962 metres (22,838 ft). We are starting on Dec 29th 2017 and plan to reach the summit on Jan 18th 2018.

With our climb we want to support the children in Kimilili and would like to raise at least 1 CHF for each climbed meter of difference in altitude starting from Vallecitos at 2727 metres - that means 4235 metres in difference in altitude!

I am sure we will make it to the summit :D Please support us with your donation so that we achieve the ultimate summit of raising 4235 CHF for the children in Kimilili! ASANTE SANA!
