Sarka Climbs Kilimanjaro for Banbury Young Homelessness Project
Sarka Naivertova leaves today to climb Kilimanjaro from Monday onwards.
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain of Africa and belongs amongst 7 of the highest mountains in the world.
Her challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro is in aid of the Banbury Young Homelessness Project. (BYHP). So far has raised over £6000, but she would love to raise over £10k during the climb.
Talking about the challenge, Sarka said, “It is a challenge. When I was young, I never believed I could climb a mountain like that. The thought of climbing Kili scare’s me a bit due to altitude, as I know it is going to be difficult. It is the highest mountain of Africa and belongs amongst 7 of the highest mountains in the world.
“I want to climb it because I want to prove to myself anything is possible as long as we have the right mindset and don’t give in to the fear
As a young person I was scared of everything. I learnt in life that fear is something that can be overcome only by not giving in and being brave. I therefore learnt to feel it and do it anyway as the famous sentence goes. Or as Richard Branson, a businessman who has inspired me, says: ‘Screw it let’s do it’
Giving her reasons why she chose the raise the money for Banbury Young Homelessness Project she said “I have always wanted to do something for BYHP since I met the charity because I like what they are doing for young people. I am very passionate about developing young people and about support in growth.
“Not all young people are lucky enough to be able to study, have homes, and get moral support. These are however the most important factors that shape a young person and BYHP is helping such young people to overcome obstacles they may face. Which is amazing.”
