Have your ascent sponsered!

Raise $ 5000 (target amount)

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 and 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, start baking waffles to sell ... Maybe you can ask for an extra collection in your church or ask the youth group in your church to help.

Sponsor package for companies

Ask companies to sponsor you ascent. We will take a flag or banner with their logo and/or slogan to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. We’ll have it photographed and you can ask a donation in return for a couple of summit pictures. We can also offer pictures of the children in the CarePoints holding a flag or banner with the logo or slogan of your corporate sponsor. They can use it for their website, newsletters, magazines of just present it in their reception hall.
