Africa New Life Kilimanjaro Climb

In February 2023, Chris Busby was a member of two teams of Africa New Life friends and supporters who hiked their way to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in support of Africa New Life’s Food and Care Program. Each year, these teams raise vital funds that support Africa New Life’s students and communities with nutritious meals and food provisions. When the 2020 Kilimanjaro team raised $122,000 for the Food and Care Program, they had no idea how their efforts would be critical to Africa New Life's emergency COVID-19 relief efforts just a couple of months later! The 2023 team was able to raise more than $160,000 to support the Food and Care program!

Each year, the Food and Care Program provides more than 1.5 million meals to Rwanda’s children and families. Supporting the Food and Care Program ensures that lunches will continue to be served in schools and provided to families who need them most and that students all across Rwanda can focus well at school and pursue their dreams!
