First and Last Name * Email Address * How did you hear about Africa New Life's fundraising climb? * What is your motivation for joining this trip? * We are looking to send 2 teams in 2023. One team will be all women, another will be all men, and there will possibly be a couple's climb. Which team(s) would you prefer? Check all that apply. * It takes a minimum of 24 hours to travel to Tanzania and you will need to arrive in Moshi 1-2 days prior to your first day of climbing. Your trek will be 8 days. This means you will need to commit to taking 2 weeks off from work, plus additional days if you would like to travel to Rwanda for 2-3 days on the back-end of your trip. Are you prepared to do this? * Yes No Team Dynamics How are you in group or team settings? This is a hard mental and physical climb. Our last three groups made it to the summit, working hard and encouraging each other throughout fundraising and the climb. This trip created a bond between the climbers, even to this day. * Are you comfortable sharing a tent with someone you have not met in-person? You will meet through social media or Zoom months prior to the climb. * Yes No Are you prepared to go up to 9 days without a shower? * Yes No Expenses and Fundraising How do you feel about raising $10,000 or more individually? Our past teams have had group goals between $150,000 and $300,000. How do you feel about dedicating yourself to take on this goal as part of a large team? * Tusker Trail is one of the safest and most well-known trekking companies. They have medically trained guides, and they are the only trekking group that carries a hyperbaric chamber. Their main goal is to keep you healthy and get you to the top of the mountain. The climb itself will cost between $5,500 and $6,000. The overall trip costs can be anywhere from $6,000 to $8,000. This includes your airfare to and from Tanzania, hotel stay in Moshi, cost for an 8 or 9 day trek (meals included), and any gear items you may not already own. You may need to rent some items from Tusker. The more gear items you have the less the trip cost is. Are you prepared to make this investment? The trip cost is separate and in addition to the fundraising goal you will have. * Yes No Are you willing to post on your social media accounts, send out emails, and be willing to share about your fundraiser? This is the best way to fundraise! * Yes No Are you willing to accept guidance and even critique as you proceed through fundraising and training? Our goal is to see you succeed! * Yes No Conduct Team chemistry and synergy is very important on the Kilimanjaro climb. If, at any time during your training and fundraising, your conduct is producing strife or offending members of the team, Africa New Life staff, or Tusker Trail staff, you may be asked to meet with Africa New Life leadership and, potentially, be asked to leave the team. This could potentially put your deposit at risk. Can you agree to this? * Yes No Additional Details
This trip is officially with Tusker Trail, not Africa New Life, but you are fundraising for the Africa New Life Food and Care fund. You will sign all forms with Tusker Trail in regards to life or death incidents. Any liability will be through them.
Africa New Life Ministries reserves the right to remove you from the team or to have you turn back during the hike for reasons of health or conduct. Can you agree to this? * Yes No COVID-19
Tanzania does not require that you receive the COVID-19 vaccine to enter the country. If you want to travel to Rwanda, you will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The government of Rwanda requires proof of vaccination in order to participate in gatherings or enter public locations such as churches and restaurants. For this reason, Africa New Life will only be able to host vaccinated travelers in Rwanda. When registering for the optional Rwanda add-on, you will need to provide proof of vaccination.
Africa New Life welcomes you to visit our ministry in Rwanda post-climb. We will host the group for up to 3 days with a tailored itinerary to introduce you to Rwanda, our work, and give you the chance to visit your sponsored student. Africa New Life will cover your standard travel expenses while you are in Rwanda, inclusive of lodging, meals, and transportation. Additional time or excursions such as safari or a gorilla trek will be at your own expense. You will need a COVID-19 vaccine to come to Rwanda.
