Gulf for Good has taken well over 300 participants to Kilimanjaro till date and helped raise over one million dirhams to support needy kids in African charities like Larchfield, Village Education Project and Amani Children’s Home.
One of the most difficult adventure trek in the world “Trek to the Roof of Africa, Kilimanjaro” is a rigorous high altitude challenge.
Funds raised from the upcoming challenge will help Larchfield Charity to build a “children’s Home” for abandoned kids in Tanzania.

Established in 2001, Gulf for Good is a UAE-based nonprofit charity in Dubai’s International Humanitarian City under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum. Its aim is to support projects for disadvantaged children around the world through adventure challenges.
To date, we have raised well over US$3 million and have taken over 1,200 challengers of all fitness levels, aged 16-72 and roughly 50/50 male/female, to places like Palestine, Jordan, Everest Base Camp, Mongolia, Borneo, Macchu Pichu, China and Uganda. Through these challenges, participants have been able to step out of their comfort zones and into new environments where they can discover new places, push their own limits, and interact directly with the charities that their fundraising will support.
