Randstad Kilimanjaro Challenge for VSO

Kelsey Henderson
from €5,000 (103%)

In October I will be traveling to Tanzania and Kenya with a team of 25 Randstad colleagues to climbing Kilimanjaro in support of “Access to Decent Green Jobs for Young People”, a VSO project in Kenya focussing on enhancing the livelihoods and wellbeing for marginalized youth. These young people are facing difficulties both on a personal level (abuse, exploitation, health problems and limited access to information) and on a grander scale (climate change, high unemployment rates).

Your donation will be invested in enhancing the livelihoods and wellbeing of 200 marginalized young people (aged 18 -35) through decent jobs. It is our objective to strengthen green youth-led startups so that they can create decent jobs through waste recovery, value addition and producing environmentally sustainable outputs.

This will include jobs in waste recycling as well as organic agriculture. Especially through the development of youth-led agroecological enterprises to strengthen local food systems, to address the food crisis through climate resilient farming techniques.

My motivation for this challenge is to extend myself mentally and physically in the best way! I have a passion for experiencing new cultures, so knowing I will have a direct impact by fundraising for a community outside of the U.S. is extremely motivating. If you do not know me personally, health and wellness have become so important to me in the past few years. I have officially lost over 75 pounds and want to set a goal to reach 100 pounds lost before embarking on this adventure in October! With the support and donations you provide, it will encourage me to reach my personal goal while also supporting a great cause! THANK YOU!
