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? * Once we have enough applicants, we will decide how to divide into groups. Of the options, which would you be the most interested in? * 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 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. How are you in group or team settings? * 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 Africa New Life asks each climber to raise $10,000 on behalf of Africa New Life's Food and Care Program. Our past teams have had group goals between $150,000 and $300,000. Will you be committed to this fundraising goal? * Yes No 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
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. The following items will be paid at your expense:
Additional time or excursions such as safari or a gorilla trek,
Food Packs you deliver if you visit the student you sponsor,
or gifts and souvenirs. Are you interested in coming to Rwanda after your climb? * 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 Conduct 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 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 Tusker Trails 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 Additional Details
