Chief Scout climbing Kilimanjaro in aid of hungry families
From 9-15 February, our Chief Scout Sibusiso Vilane will be climbing Kilimanjaro to raise funds to feed local families. "At SCOUTS South Africa we don't just talk about helping others, we actually do," he says. "Our members engage in many community initiatives and as Chief Scout it is my duty to do the same." The funds raised with the climb will go towards a charity that strives to feed 70 000 families over a period of one year in the Maccau settlement.
