Tom David (2011B) and Warren Handley (2010G) are two South African 25-year-olds who have just written a book about their journey of climbing the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, and walking 6000km through six countries on $2 a day in aid of Early Childhood Development.
Handley says he was inspired by Aluwani: “We are so privileged to have played a part in this journey; this story is not about us, we are merely part of a far bigger story. It is the community caregivers and the children themselves who are the real heroes.”
In a story of extreme pain and even greater kindness, overcoming challenges and lessons learned, they have a message to share: Not everyone has to walk 6000km to make a difference but what can YOU do to contribute to a more equal society?
They need you to walk with them and share their story by preordering your book today.To get more information about their story or to pre-order their book, click here.
