On 29th October, five employees from our valued corporate partner, law firm Holman Fenwick Willan, embarked on a trekking challenge to support our work giving children worldwide a safe and secure childhood.
A 4,895 metre challengeTogether the team - Amanda Cheung, Alex Seyegh, Anna Zereba, Sara Sheffield and Tunde Adesokan - climbed Mount Kenya, the world's second tallest free-standing mountain. Being on the cusp of the rainy season, the team faced a range of weather conditions from repressive humidity and rain in the valleys to icy cold wind and snow nearing the summit. But with the support of experienced local guides and plenty of effort the team successfully reached Point Lenana at 4,895 metres.
Visiting an inspirational girls' refuge centreAfter completing their Mount Kenya challenge, the team had the opportunity to see for themselves the difference the money they raised will make to the lives of some of the most vulnerable children - with a visit to ChildHope's partner organisation in Kenya, Pendekezo Letu. Here they visited a refuge centre in Thika that offers street girls intensive counselling, safe accommodation and specialised education prior to being reintegrated with their families and enrolled in formal primary schools.
"Congratulations to the Holman Fenwick Willan team for successfully reaching Point Lenana"
