CLIMB FOR KARAM
Join the Karam Team on January 19-29, 2017 as we climb Africa's tallest mountain with mountaineer, Mostafa Salameh. Learn how you can join us as we take on Mount Kilimanjaro and raise money for Karam Foundation's education programs for Syrian refugee youth.
ABOUT MOSTAFA SALAMEH
Mostafa Salameh is an mountaineer, author, and motivational speaker. He completed the "Explorers Grand Slam" challenge in January 2016, becoming the only Jordanian and one of 13 people in the world to have succeeded in conquering the North Pole, the South Pole, and all of the Seven Summits. In his book Dreams of a Refugee, Salameh describes his life's journey from being a refugee to fulfilling an unexpected vision where he was standing on top of Mount Everest. His work focuses on raising awareness about multicultural and religious coexistence. He believes that human beings have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility in order to overcome the challenges of our times. Today, he is inviting YOU to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with the #Climb4Karam team to help Karam build a better future for Syria.
ABOUT MT. Kilimanjaro
Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's tallest mountain. It comprises three extinct volcanoes: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. The highest of these points, Kibo, stands at 5,895 meters above sea level. Located in northern Tanzania near the Kenyan border, Kilimanjaro is one of the world's most popular and rewarding mountains to climb. Although it demands considerable preparation and effort, Kilimanjaro does not require specialist mountaineering skills, and is, strictly speaking, walked rather than climbed. The incline is relatively gentle throughout -the most challenging slopes being a slightly steeper section with loose terrain near the summit. The wildly changing climactic conditions along the ascent of Kilimanjaro make for varied sights and spectacles along the way. The rainforest is home to the biggest range of life on the mountain.
