I received an email from Monica Wong last week about a cool new endeavor from Support For International Change (SIC), an organization that is dedicated to limiting the impact of HIV/AIDS in underserved communities. I thought it was worth sharing:
SIC has teamed up with The Peaks Foundation, an organization that coordinates global mountain challenges for women who seek adventure, a sense of personal achievement, and an opportunity to make a positive difference in the world.
This August they have organized a ‘1 Peak 1 Week Kilimanjaro Challenge’ to support women in Tanzania living with HIV/AIDS and to reduce its impact by providing education, economic and social support.
Here are 3 ways you can help:
1. Sign up for the challenge! We are currently looking for fearless females like you to scale the highest freestanding mountain in the world: Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro. This challenge begins this summer, August 12-21. Click here for more information and a brief itinerary.
2. Spread the word about the ‘1 Peak 1 Week Kilimanjaro Challenge’ with your readers and fellow wanderlusters. This is a great way to explore the world and make a positive impact in the local community.
3. Tweet the following message for a chance to win one of SIC’s Tuko Pamoja bags:

What do you think, do you have what it takes?
