Read Mission Statement

Africa's highest summit for the world's biggest challenge. Help us raise funds to provide safe water in Tanzania!

Have you ever said, "I'm dying of thirst?" If so, you probably didn't really mean it.

If you're like us, you don’t spend too much time thinking about water -- it's everywhere we go. When we're thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we're dirty, we twist a shower knob. When our garden needs watering, when our pasta needs to be boiled, when we use the bathroom -- water is just an arm's length away.

But, in many developing countries, women and children walk for hours, up and down mountains, just to collect water that can make them really sick.

In an effort to bring awareness to this problem, the Challenge21 team will be going to Tanzania this fall to climb the highest peak on the African continent, Mount Kilimanjaro. Our team has set two ambitious goals: to reach the Roof of Africa by climbing 19,340 feet to the summit of Kilimanjaro, and to raise $1 per foot climbed to bring clean water to our host country. You can help us play a small part in solving the water crisis by donating to our campaign.

100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send us proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we impacted.

This campaign brought clean water to Djamjama Bomboye Community, Niger and 3 other projects.
