Apart from the cost of participating in this trip, the participants are asked to raise and donate an amount of 5000 USD (indicative amount) to Christ's Hope International - Belgium. All of this money will be transferred directly to Christ's Hope International - DRC. None of it will be used to cover operating expenses such as marketing or accounting, in Belgium. Your money will go exclusively to support the daily operations in DRC, to the full benefit of the children. Be creative in your fundraising. Ask friends and family to help you, organize a yard sale or start baking waffles to sell.
Perhaps you know a number of companies or organizations who are interested in a Kilimanjaro summit picture showing a flag with their logo. Perhaps they are willing to pay for that picture. We can have the children in the CarePoints in Kinshasa posing for some pictures holding up the flag with the logo of a company and saying : “Thank you + name company + for sponsoring this CarePoint”. You could sell that kind of pictures to companies. Or maybe your employer has a (limited) fund that is used to support good causes. Ask him/her.
