Climb for Clean Water
In June 2018, as part of our year-long celebration of our 10th anniversary of service,
Water to Thrive Executive Director Susanne Wilson will be leading an expedition
up the Lemosho Route of Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds to support our mission
of bringing clean, safe water to rural African communities in need.
Meet our team members and pledge to their fundraising drives!
Executive Director, Water to Thrive
"Water to Thrive has been building water projects in Tanzania for several years now,
and I was struck by the idea of taking a group to visit those projects
and then climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness of our mission
and raise funds to support our mission at the same time."

"I first learned about Water To Thrive several years ago,
when I was approached by W2T to help create what would become
their signature fundraising event, Chef's Table Austin.
During the process, I learned more about the water crisis
and saw W2T's dedication to help provide
the basic, life-changing resource of safe water.
I have truly enjoyed this annual event, supporting W2T's mission
of bringing clean water to so many African communities in need.
Climbing Kilimanjaro this summer will certainly
be an amazing experience for my daughter and me.
We are very excited to do the climb
and raise money and awareness for Water To Thrive!"

"We have decided to challenge ourselves
and participate in Water to Thrive's amazing 2018 fundraiser
of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania!
We hope to help raise awareness
about the many rural Tanzanian communities
still waiting for safe water, while raising funds
to support W2T operations at the same time."
