BNI’s guiding philosophy of Givers Gain® is a powerful concept, which is evident not just in our weekly networking meetings, but in the lives of each of our leaders and members across the world. This year, we’re pleased to again support a philanthropic endeavor, the BNI Kilimanjaro Challenge, led by Bijay Shah, BNI’s National Director in the UAE, Qatar, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.

In an effort to support Larchfield Charity Organisation, a children’s orphanage in Tanzania, Bijay, along with James Berry, a BNI member for more than 10 years, and the UAE based charity Gulf for Good, are leading a series of five Mt. Kilimanjaro treks from June to October 2017.

BNI’s members around the world are invited to participate in the challenge this Summer, as are your friends, family, associates and colleagues. Graham Weihmiller, BNI’s Chairman & CEO, has recorded this brief video about the Challenge, and his journey climbing Kilimanjaro.

Collectively, the team hopes to lead 125 climbers to the Summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and to raise $125,000 for the children at Larchfield.
