Climbing Kilimanjaro for AMP

Although the highest geographical peak, Africa has far bigger mountains to climb. As you read this, Africans across the continent, homelands torn apart by social disaster, flee across borders to simply survive! Can you imagine your own home becoming critically hostile, forcing you to seek refuge in places where you are treated with utter contempt, let alone wanted? Well, people just like us have fled all they know and once loved and have come to our country for refuge and safety. Will you help them? Will you rise to this challenge and partner with us?

Inspired by the Adonis Musati Project’s empowerment programme for young asylum seekers in South Africa, the McWalter family will be taking on the immense challenge of summiting Uhuru Peak, Mount Kilimanjaro on the 4th October 2017 to raise awareness of and support for the desperate plight of our displaced African children. We like that AMP provides an African solution to an African challenge. From the initial concept, through the steady preparation, to the last gruelling ascent up Uhuru Peak – we invite you to come with us!

We cannot do this alone, so please share in our climb by supporting us in each metre that we ascend. In so doing, together we will elevate our African brothers and sisters to new heights in their upward struggle, summiting our challenges together.

Your donation will go directly to those most in need.

Visit to follow our preparation and progress in the lead up to 4th October.
