Hi, my name is Aisha and I am currently studying at Lancaster University. This summer I have decided to take on the challenge of climbing Mount Kenya for Dig Deep, a charity which helps communities in East Africa to access clean water and sanitation.

The money raised can transform the lives of so many: decreasing the rates of water-borne diseases, allowing more children to be able to go to school, bringing sanitation to the area.
Please note that this money will go to the many projects Dig Deep have within East Africa as well as funding my climb and trip to Kenya to see their work in action.
