Barry and Chris Finlay from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2009 and have since raised enough money, in conjunction with Plan Canada, to provide access to clean water and classrooms for a community in Tanzania. They are now embarking on a project to help youth and women ages 15-24 in Tanzania to establish businesses. Read about their journey in their book, Kilimanjaro and Beyond. This Blog describes upcoming events and how you can help.
I am very happy to announce that I will be signing Kilimanjaro and Beyond alongside the Kilimanjaro Grannies, who will be signing their collaborative
coffee-table book, Kilimanjaro: A Purposeful Journey. A portion of the sale of Kilimanjaro and Beyond goes to Plan Canada for helping young women start small businesses in Tanzania. All the proceeds from the sale of the Grannies' book goes to the
Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign and the Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation.
The signings will take place on Saturday, December 3 at Collected Works, 1242 Wellington Street, Ottawa from 1-3 pm.
