In June I will be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with a  Bridges of Peace and Hope team. The climb is the culmination of a project called "High Hopes and Common Threads." When we reach the summit of the 19,340 ft. peak, the highest mountain in Africa, we will unfurl a banner that includes the hopes, beliefs, and cares of students and teachers around the world. These thoughts will be expressed in words, artwork and photos. Our goal is to collect submissions from 1,934 children and adults. The photos will be blended into a photo mosoaic. The climb and project is a also a fundraiser for the Mukwashi Trust School in Lusaka, Zambia. Mukwashi Trust School is a wonderful Pre-K to Grade 9 school that is providing an excellent educational experience for over 300 local boys and girls. The school needs our support to continue the good working we are doing. We have a goal of raising $19,340, one dollar for each of the 19,340 feet to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This sum of money will pay all the expenses to educate 150 children for an entire school year, including the teachers salary and classroom materials. If you are able to support us in this effort we thank you on behalf of all the children and teachers of Mukwashi School. 


Bridges of Peace and Hope is a 501 c 3 educational non-profit  organization. We are dedicated to promoting understanding and global awareness through creative educational projects that connect classrooms around the world.
