About the Trip
The trek for Kupenda, "Kilimanjaro with the Children" is an extension of Kupenda for the Children’s long-standing goal: to communicate value and love to children with disabilities. Life isn't luxurious in many parts of Kenya and Tanzania as it is, but living with a disability can be an isolating, dangerous, humiliating, and shameful experience. Many people born with disabilities are mistreated, neglected, abandoned, or even killed. The mission of this trek is to change 3 perspectives:
- That of communities, families, government workers, and teachers to showcase the purpose, value, and strength these young individuals possess.
- To inspire the hearts of the young hikers joining us – to encourage them in their journey and help them achieve greatness through a community that loves them.
- To change YOUR mind – to remind you that heartbreaking human rights issues exist in East Africa, and you can help make a difference!
