On Sunday, April 7th, 2019, 113 School for Life supporters descended upon Thredbo Village to join in the inaugural Kosi Climb for Kids - our first ever family-friendly, all ages event held on Aussie soil - where participants young and old walked the 13km round-trip to experience a day in the shoes of rural Ugandan students.
On September 8th, a group of 16 adventurers reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. It was a feat that took seven days to complete; a gruelling mental and physical challenge battling freezing cold temperatures and altitude.
