Enjoy this 3 minute video those going in April 22015 have the opportunity to do most of the activities shown here. Just love the place!
I have prepared an itinerary for those who are joining us or who are interested in joining us:
Welcome to our Mount Kenya 2015 web site.
Navigation is easy just follow the drop downs and you will find out why we are climbing our third African mountain for the children of Africa. We invite you to join us on this adventure and we have two teams going. One to hike and climb and one which will go on safari while we hike and climb!
Please think about sponsoring us up the mountain for four very good causes that will enable us to maintain sustainability on a continued basis since we first started with the Coolamon Rotary’s Road MAPS to Africa Programme in 2005.
Please feel free to contact me John Glassford on 61 2 6927 6027 or email me:

FOR ALL THE CHILDREN WE ARE WORKING FOR IN AFRICA.
This is one project which has enormous potential for Rotary Clubs to become involved with. It involves sponsoring an elephant orphan which in turn sponsors an orphan from Kenya. There are some 22 million orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa today Here are some photos of the orphans visiting the orphans and then going back to their home and learning about elephants and their conservation for their own futures together in Kenya.

Governors-elect greeted this announcement with a standing cheering ovation as Boyd stated, “This will be my theme and an affirmation of my belief in the power of Rotarians to change the world, one positive act at a time.” He concluded his remarks by saying, “As Rotarians, we are not content to let matters stay the way they have always been in our clubs or in our communities. We are not content with the status quo, and we do not look at a problem only to say someone else will solve it. We are the ones who ask, ‘Why not us?’ We are the ones with the skills and the desire to build a better future. And we are the ones who must ”Lead the Way”
