presents KILI FOR LEBANON
Mission: To climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in September 2007
To plant the Lebanese flag on the highest peak in Africa. At an altitude of nearly 6,000 meters, the team will set a record for the first ever financial transaction on the Lebanese Stock Exchange from this height on earth.

Why? To raise £200,000 for educational projects in Lebanon
Following the summer conflict of 2006 and years of neglect and under-investment, the schools in Lebanon are not suitable to provide high quality education.
As a first step to addressing this problem, we intend to raise £200k, which will secure a further £1.25 million from UNICEF, to improve the quality of education in 25 schools in rural Lebanon. Moreover, IMC UK will also commit a further £120k to this project, which will take the total amount raised to £1.57 million.
