Dear Kiiza,

On June 4 2016 we will embark on what we believe will be the adventure of a lifetime: #ClimbMuhavura4GraceVilla 2016

Friends, colleagues, athletes, non athletes, adventure seekers and well wishers will be unified for 3 days and 2 nights with 1 goal: to conquer Mount Muhavura for Grace Villa home for orphans and vulnerable girls. I write today with a heart filled with great thanksgiving and gladness, struck by the amazing response we are receiving to this climb!

Things are lining up beautifully. People are coming together to form climbing teams, Friends are creating flyers and spreading them across the country, Gahinga Lodge – the Volcanoes Safari’s luxury lodge in Kisoro – has teamed up with us to offer our climbers a superb discount rate as our host hotel for the climb…these are just some of the wonderful details that will come together to make this expedition unforgettable.

Grace Villa exists to ensure that vulnerable children are loved, fed, given health and psychological care, educated and protected. By supporting #ClimbMuhavura4GraceVilla you are joining hands with us to help rescue a child, give her a loving home, transform her life and build a safer world for tomorrow’s children.

I hope to see you there!


Ruth Ndyabahika
Founder & CEO, Grace Villa

About Mount Muhavura
This mythical mountain is one of the peaks that make up the Virunga Ranges mentioned in the book "Gorillas In The Mist" by the legendary Dian Fossey. One of the highest peaks in Western Uganda, Muhavura is situated in one of the most fascinating, beautiful places on earth. #ClimbMuhavura4GraceVilla offers a real challenge, symbolizing the mountains that orphans and vulnerable girls must climb each day. Just like our girls did before they came into our care. Yet is achievable for people who are active & are ready for a challenge.

For those who can’t make it to the peak: Worry Not. The climb is pre divided into 3 rest hut stops, and reaching any one of these huts is considered a successful climb. So ultimately, you still get to Climb Muhavura! It’s about a 1.5 hour hike to the 1st hut. Or you can join the many others who choose to participate from the base, where we have activities planned.

So get set, elevate your workouts, pre hydrate, tell all your friends and family – and fundraise! The countdown begins.
