2004 South Dublin Kilimanjaro Expedition

In 2004, following our visit to Mukuru in 2003, and the success of the Féile Sherehe Street Festival, it was agreed that we needed to do more to help the school children of Mukuru to achieve a good standard of education as a basic civil right.

An expedition was organised to climb Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest peak at 5,895 mtrs – to raise funds and awareness for educational projects in Mukuru. The expedition team consisted of staff and students at IT Tallaght, including the then Director, Dr Columb Collins; and staff and Councillors at South Dublin County Council, including the then Mayor of South Dublin, Máire Ardagh, and her husband, Seán Ardagh TD.

The expedition was a major success, raising almost €100,000 towards education projects in the slums. On completion of the expedition, the team returned to Mukuru to work in the local schools and to see at first hand, the urgent needs of the children and the community.
