My Story

As many of you know, Me and Stiv met on Everest when we trekked to base camp in aid of a children's charity.  
4 years later, we fancied another adventure! Mt. Kinabalu is the highest mountain in South East Asia - standing at 4100m, we wanted to conquer it.

Here in Kuala Lumpur, I work with a charity that provides education to Malaysia's indigenous peoples - the Orang Asli. They make up only 0.5% of the population but are a diverse, engaging and culturally rich community - it's been a pleasure working with them during my time here. However, poverty remains rife within these communities, access to education is a factor in this - only 6% of Orang Asli teens graduate high school. We wanted to find a charity involved in this sector that we could climb Kinabalu in aid of.

That's when we found SUKA Society, they train members of Orang Asli communities to become teachers and help them set up local schools for their children. Instead of providing quick-fix solutions to these communities, SUKA aim to train the Orang Asli to help themselves - their work is sustainable and long-term. This approach led to them being awarded the United Nations Malaysia Award 2015

We should stress that we have already paid for every part of the trip itself - flights, accommodation, guides etc. Therefore, every penny you choose to donate will go DIRECTLY to the charity and their work. 

So please DONATE what you can and help reach our (quite ambitious) fundraising goal!
