Trek4Mandela Expedition

The Expedition was established by innovative social entrepreneur and humanitarian, Richard Mabaso and is led by renowned South African adventurer and motivational speaker, Sibusiso Vilane – the first black African to conquer the three Poles challenge: South Pole, North Pole and Mount Everest.  The Trek brings together inspired individuals from corporate and public backgrounds to assist in raising funds and creating awareness for the Caring4Girls menstrual hygiene support programme. 

Trek4Mandela 2020
“It is not our diversity which divides us; it is not our ethnicity, or religion or culture that divides us. Since we have achieved our freedom, there can only be one division amongst us: between those who cherish democracy and those who do not.” 
Nelson Mandela

 and building a RAINBOW NATION were some of Nelson Mandela’s key visions for the new South Africa, post-apartheid era.  In recognition of these beautiful concepts, the Imbumba Foundation, in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, will be hosting an exciting, new version of our usual Trek4Mandela Kilimanjaro expeditions in 2020, which will be the first of its kind, to ascend Kilimanjaro with different teams along all 6 routes, to summit Uhuru Peak together on at the same time on Mandela Day, July 18th, with the theme to entrench Madiba’s vision of the Rainbow Nation and Unity in Diversity.

Following her successful Trek4Mandela summit on Women’s Day 2019, for the promotion of Dignity and Social Justice for all South African’s, former South African Public Protector and Humanitarian, Professor Thuli Madonsela has committed to partaking the 2020 Trek.

Through the 2020 Expedition we hope to reach 1,000,000 girl learners through the Caring4Girls programme: (100,000 girl learners from each of the 9 South African provinces, 50,000 girl learners from Tanzania and a further 50,000 from Swaziland, Mozambique, Namibia, Lesotho and Botswana).

This will be a first of its kind expedition and eligible for entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.
