Passion for education inspires team to scale Kilimanjaro

CODE’s 2014 Summit for Literacy a success!

“I’m a very passionate believer in the power of education as a tool for development. I got to see the kids and how eager they are to learn. You really felt like you were making a huge difference.”
Christopher Bredt, 3-time Kili Conquerer

Congratulations to our 14 Kili Conquerers, whose nine-day trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro left them with incredible stories and memories they will cherish for the rest of their lives. This amazing team raised more than $218,000 to support our literacy programs in Africa! We’re extremely proud of the climbers and their dedication to our cause. Thank you Kili Conquerers!

+$218,000 raised support for our literacy programs in Africa!

We’d also like to thank everyone who donated to support the climbers and who were instrumental in making CODE’s Summit for Literacy a success. Thanks to their generous donations, hundreds of thousands of children in Africa will have a chance to reach their full potential through the power of literacy.

There will be another Summit for Literacy in 2018!

If you would like to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, please email Allen LeBlanc, Director Fund Development and Marketing.
