KAPUA raises funds for developing countries by climbing mountains. Through our fundraising campaigns we have donated almost 90,000 euros to projects that directly improve the lives of children in Africa and Asia.
The raised funds are distributed to those in need via respected organizations operating in Finland. We have raised funds for well known organisations like Save the Children and Yle Helps. The climbers cover all their travel costs; 100% of the funds go to the charitable organizations.
Each group of charity climbers is chosen by open application. The charity climbers are ordinary people who want to help children in developing countries. The journey will present the climbers with the emotional challenge of meeting children in dire need and the physical challenge of reaching the summit of the mountain.
For the climbers KAPUA will be an unforgettable experience. KAPUA also provides the charitable organizations with visibility in the media and a remarkable amount of raised funds. However, the children in the developing countries whose lives can be changed with the money raised are the biggest winners.
K. Pellikka announced this fundraising event on 10 February 2010.
