Mount Kilimanjaro Challenge

We are looking for 12 people to take on a once in a lifetime experience by joining us on our first ever bespoke trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

From camping under starlight, watching the sunrise over Tanzania and trekking through the rainforest, this promises to be a truly unforgettable experience.

This is perfect for anyone looking for the ultimate challenge and is your opportunity to do something amazing while making a real difference to the lives of the children, young people and families we support.

Join Team Children 1st for this experience of a lifetime.


Regan's story
I have been volunteering and working with Children 1st for four years and I can honestly say that I love being part of this charity, which made the decision to get involved in the Mount Kilimanjaro trek rather easy.

In my job, I see first-hand just how essential fundraising is to the thousands of children, young people and families that come to us every year in desperate need of support.

I am raising my own funds to raise the money needed to take part in this trek. I’ve got loads of fundraising activity planned and am looking for other people to join the team for our first ever overseas challenge.
