Philanthropy Tourism 

Cash donations, sponsorships, and volunteering are a great way to help Ikirwa School, but not the only way.  See what others have done to help us out, and please share with us any ideas that you have.


Charity Climbs

Many of our supporters have learned about us when they planned a M. Kilimanjaro climb with our partner, Team Kilimanjaro. In addition to giving a discount to the climbers that would like to combine their trek with a philanthropic cause, Team Kilimanjaro also provides the tools to create a personalized fundraising page for those that do not have the time or resources to create one on one of the popular platforms such as GoGetFunding.  If you are interested in organizing a charity climb please visit their page for further details.

Volunteer Trekking Experience

Ikirwa School is proud to partner with our long-term supporter, Top of Africa trekking company, to develop a tour package that combines Tanzania’s top tourist activities with an opportunity to meet and get to know the local people and children in a way tourist seldom experience.


By joining Top of Africa’s international team of men and women for a fun and meaningful volunteer experience you will have the opportunity to not only participate in a Safari or trek to Mt. Kilimanjaro but also make a direct impact on the lives of local children. We offer an opportunity to serve and connect with the Ikirwa School students in a tangible and personal way through teaching, tutoring,

playing, and conversations.


Teams of Top of Africa volunteers will carry out short academic and athletic projects and programs  that compliment the curriculum, giving the children a chance to learn about diverse cultures and sharpen academic and athletic skills.


100% of your contribution to the Trekking/Volunteer Service Program and your international flight will be tax deductible.
