Scaling New Heights for Education: Easydry's Kilimanjaro Fundraiser

Empowering Children’s Education

We are thrilled to announce that Anne Butterly, CEO and Founder of Easydry, and Angela Byrne, General Manager, will be taking on the incredible challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in June 2024. This expedition, known as Kiliclimb4kids, is a fundraiser dedicated to supporting children's education globally.

Anne and Angela will join eight other passionate hikers to conquer Africa’s highest peak. This team’s goal is to raise awareness and funds for three exceptional non-profit organizations: MiDeskGlobal Africa, LIFT Ireland, and ACAS Argentina. Each of these organizations is committed to improving access to quality education for children in underprivileged areas around the world.

1 Goal: Quality Education For Everyone

About the Organizations:

MiDeskGlobal Africa: UNESCO reports that over 3 million children in South Africa lack access to desks in their schools, a challenge faced by 95 million children across Africa and more than 400 million children globally. The MiDesk is a groundbreaking innovation that transforms a school bag into a desk and chair, complete with a solar light and USB charging port. This inventive design allows children to easily transport their workspace to and from school.

LIFT Ireland: LIFT Ireland is a social enterprise initiative aimed at increasing the level of positive leadership capabilities in Ireland.  their mission is to transform our society by enabling every young person, regardless of background or means, to improve their mental wellbeing, build self-leadership, and develop inner strength. LIFT’s programme is being rolled out nationwide via a volunteer facilitator network with a goal of reaching 10% of the population by 2028.

ACAS Argentina: build border schools and develop educational projects and social support actions that serve as a basis to improve the quality of life of children in the most remote communities of Argentine territory

The Challenge Ahead

Climbing Kilimanjaro is no small feat. Anne, Angela, and their team will face numerous challenges, including high altitudes, mental and physical endurance, and varying weather conditions. Their preparation includes acclimatization hikes and endurance training to ensure they are ready for the demanding trek.

Anne Butterly draws inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s belief that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This profound idea fuels their dedication to ensuring every child has access to quality education.

The team’s goal is to raise awareness and funds for organisations that work towards providing education to children in need children who are deprived of basic education.

Their mission is to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goal #4: “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
