About Dig Deep Africa 2023 - Maya Parekh

I am taking on the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak and the world's highest freestanding mountain. I am doing so to support Dig Deep who believe that every resident in Kenya has a fundamental right to the provision of clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.Where Dig Deep work, 8 out of every 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene. Most residents live in rural communities and spend hours every day walking to collect dirty water or find a safe place to relieve themselves.Dirty water and poor hygiene spread diseases meaning even more time is lost to sickness that could have been used to learn and earn.For a child, this can mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing a full education.For a parent, this can mean the difference between struggling to get by and earning enough to improve the standing of their family.Dig Deep's purpose is to collaborate with the Kenyan government, local businesses and communities, to transform the provision of clean water, sanitation and good hygiene in Bomet County - one of the most challenging and least resourced areas in the country.They take an integrated approach to their work, using partnerships, education, training and advocacy to create sustainable change for Bomet County's 1 million residents.For more information visit overall fundraising target is £295050% of which goes directly to accelerating access to water, sanitation and good hygiene in Bomet County, Kenya50% of which goes towards my expedition costs (not including flights, I am paying for these myself)Any support to help me reach my target is greatly appreciated, thank you!

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
