Three fellows on the climb…and back
The Climbers and their motivations
“I have been very lucky in having a scholarship to go to graduate school, without this act of generosity I would probably not be part of this fellowship now. I want to use this occasion to give back”
Brenda, during her fellowship assignment in Hyderabad with WHI, fell in love with an orphanage and has committed to find supporters to sponsor the children.
“I love spending time and playing with the kids. I believe these children deserve the same family warmth that I had the privilege to enjoy. That is why I have chosen them”
Khuram decided to fundraise to support relief effort in Japan after the natural disaster that affected the country in March.
“I come from Pakistan and after the flood we had last year I empathize with the terrible situation Japan is facing now”
Why three causes? We believe in difference and choice. So you can choose the way you want to contribute. Each cause represents a set of values you can identify. In this way you will be able to support causes that better match your value system and express a very personal vote.
Why Mt Kenya? As part of the fellowship program, all the ten Acumen Fund Fellows met in Nairobi in early April, this created the perfect occasion for this mission! And if the mountain doesn’t go to the fellows, the fellows go to the mountain!
How can you help? Just follows the fellows www.re-creaction.org! You are a part of this mission as well. We will post our updates toward the peak starting and pictures…and some surprises, starting from day one. You can donate at any time, or just support these causes independently in the months to come.
We are back now, but…
THE ADVENTURE IS NOT OVER YET!
In the coming weeks we will release comments, pictures …and some surprise to take you even more into the journey, so stay tuned. We will start TOMORROW!
