Kili Climb overview

53 million girls in developing countries are denied access to primary school. That’s 53 million reasons why Intrepid is supporting programs that get girls into school – and help them stay at school longer.
It’s also part of the reason why we created Project SAMA, our three-year global initiative that promotes gender equality around the world. Project SAMA supports a number of projects around the world focusing on the importance of educating girls and improving the lives of communities in need.
The funds raised by the Intrepid Kili Climb will go directly towards supporting an early education project operated by Plan in Uganda. Only 23% of children in Uganda currently have access to early learning services, with children from rural areas more likely to miss out. Plan is working to build the skills and knowledge of parents, caregivers and communities so that children have the chance to reach their full potential.
By joining us on this challenge to Africa’s highest peak, you will be committing to fundraise for an important early education project in Uganda. With the full support of Intrepid’s SAMA team, you will have until the 10th of July to reach a modest fundraising target of AUD 1,500. We can provide you with a fundraising toolkit and will be on hand to assist you.
The AUD 1,500 you fundraise will go to supporting an early education project in Uganda that aims to:
- help 1315 children attend preschool
- train over 80 teachers
- support early childhood centres
- promote equality between girls and boys in an educational setting
- ensure parental attitudes and practices are supportive of both girls and boys.
Research proves that children who participate in early education projects are:
- more likely to enrol in primary school
- less likely to repeat grades or to drop out of school
- begin school at the right age and complete the primary schooling cycle
