In August 2015, 6 mountaineers accompanied by two mountain guides will be climbing 6 peaks in the Western Alps.
The peaks are between 3,586 and 4,158 metres high. Our aim is to climb a combined total of 7,500 m in altitude.
Our tour is dedicated to helping girls in Burkina Faso (West Africa) embrace a better future by improving access to and quality of education.
TuaRes Foundation helps girls from poor families and those girls who may have lost one or both parents. The Foundation finances school fees as well as the costs of school meals, uniforms, materials and solar lamps. Additionally, extra tuition is arranged for those girls who may benefit from it while the girls’ families are provided with food. This support costs 300 euros a year for each girl.
The TuaRes Moutain Tour mountaineers are asking for your support to help facilitate this work in Burkina Faso. All donations will directly benefit the projects in Africa as all administration costs are borne by the founder of the TuaRes Foundation. In addition, the founder will double up every Euro donated in the context of the TuaRes Mountain Tour 2015. Your support will be invaluable in helping vulnerable girls in Burkina Faso access education - thereby empowering them to transition into a positive adulthood.
