In September this year I am undertaking one of the hardest challenges I have ever faced. I will be climbing Kilimanjaro to help raise money and awareness for a small but vital charity called Dig Deep.
Dig Deep work in partnership with communities to bring lasting change, building rainwater harvesting systems and latrines; working with communities to ensure that the water supplies are maintained for future generations; and training students, teachers and community leaders in hygiene and sanitation, enabling people to break the cycle of poverty and transform their own lives.
What sets Dig Deep apart.
Unlike many charities working in Kenya dig deep don’t build a well and walk away. They will not stop until they are completely confident that the water supply provided can be managed and maintained in the long term. Dig Deep measure success not on the number of wells built, but on making sure they’re still running just as well 5 years down the line.
