The team is made up of 19 people from all walks of life who took on this big physical challenge with the sole purpose of raising money to help a community in Ethiopia by building a primary school in Bonga, Ethiopia. The school will host 700 children and will be dedicated to Victor Licari.

Over the past 13 years, just under one million euros in funds have been collected through the Kilimanjaro Challenge, headed by Keith Marshall and Austin Cachia, for eleven projects in Kenya and Ethiopia. All these projects have been co-ordinated by the Missionary Movement ‘Jesus in Thy Neighbour’, founded by the late Fr George Grima who passed away in 2017, and is now headed by Fr Alex Cauchi.
