From the Managing Director

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to become a sponsor or partner for the 2020 Geita Gold Mine Kilimanjaro HIV/AIDS Challenge. As the Campaign enters its 19th year, the evidence of the impact of this wonderful event on the people of Tanzania is overwhelming. Since the humble beginnings of our first expedition in 2002, the number of recorded new infections in Tanzania has more than halved. The improvement of infrastructure and service delivery in the detection, treatment and counseling of infected people and their communities through the application of the funds to various beneficiaries has played a major role in our commitment to “getting to zero”.

The impact of HIV/AIDS on Tanzania’s population has been devastating with many frail elders being left to care for young children following the death of the parents because of this disease. Often these families do not have the means to support these children with many being left without food, water or care.

The Geita Gold Mine Kilimanjaro HIV/AIDS Challenge has brought hope where there was none before.

The building of orphanages, schools, clinics, counseling centers and refurbishing existing local and regional medical facilities has helped many communities across Tanzania to rebuild and flourish.

You too can play your part by joining our team of climbers and cyclist in 2020 and helping us raise funds for this truly noble event. As you read through this request, please take time to think of how a small gesture on your part could be life-changing for someone else. Thank you for your time and consideration.
