VSO supporters trekking mount Kilimajaro

Trek Mount Kilimanjaro


Join VSO and climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world, the mighty Kilimanjaro. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains. Spectacular views of huge permanent glaciers flowing down from the summit, and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing yourself to the limit.

Why VSO?

You’ll be trekking for an amazing cause: for a world without poverty.

Our volunteers work in 23 countries to help people live healthy, dignified lives. Some of our volunteers include teachers, doctors, business experts, nurses... the list goes on.

These volunteers share skills where it's needed the most, in the world's poorest and most marginalised communities.

£4800 could pay for 3 Patient Monitor Machines. This machine supports newborn babies, keeping babies safe in hospitals that are short staffed by measuring heartbeat, respiration and glucose levels.
