This includes a $1000USD donation to Dare Women’s Foundation to cover the volunteer build project and programming. *International flights to and from Tanzania, insurance and alcoholic beverages are not included UGO has partnered with TTI Travel Canada to manage the travel component of this program. Upon acceptance to the program please contact Peter Valentine, TTI Travel Canada, 83 Yonge St, Suite 200, Toronto, ON M5C 1S8 TICO #4411872 at 905-616-3085 for accommodation and transportation information and booking.

Our application process allows us to intentionally curate the program with kind, giving people who are open to coaching and being of service so we can best deliver a safe, transformative experience.

We cap our programs at 12 people. This allows for an optimal team experience and ensures ample individual attention within the coaching program.


Even if you aren’t looking for it, or feel you don’t you need it, we believe our educational and emotional framework allows our participants to get the most of our their experience, and most importantly to process the dynamic journey we take them on. It is also a key piece to the nurturing of the team dynamics and helps build life-long relationships. Participation in the overall coaching program is required though participants can dive in as deep or shallow as they would like. We have had similar past clients who were surprised by how much they ultimately benefited from and enjoyed the coaching component.


During UGO’s first conversation with Maggie, the Founder of Dare Women’s Foundation, we asked, “what do you need?”.   

Based on what Maggie and the community needed, we built a perimeter fence in 2019 on a piece of land that will become the future site for a home and community center that will support women and children dealing with domestic issues – providing a refuge, community, education and income-generating opportunities.

In 2022 we returned to Tanzania to build the foundation of the main house, and in 2024 we built an outdoor bathroom. We are currently in discussions with Maggie, the Founder of Dare Women’s foundation to confirm the project we will be working on based on what the needs of the foundation and community will be at that time. 


The route we will be climbing is the 7 day Rongai Route

Any true adventure comes with an element of risk or it wouldn’t be an adventure. That said, our trek up Mount Kilimanjaro will be led by experienced, certified professional guides and your safety is UGO’s number one priority throughout the entire trip.


You don’t need to be exceptionally fit as we actually walk up the mountain very slowly, but you do need to get your body used to the particular demands of this hike that includes several hours of hiking uphill and downhill each day, and a fairly intensive summit night. 

As we would like everyone to be as healthy, fit, and successful as possible while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro our program includes a 6 month Kilimanjaro specific foundational training program created by Certified Personal Trainer and Master Behaviour Change Health Coach, Janet Omstead, as well as an accountability group to help keep you on track.

If you’re unsure about your ability to climb Kilimanjaro, fill in the application and Jill will happily provide more guidance and information.
