In 2011, six high school students from Canada teamed up with six high school students from Kenya to build classrooms for the disadvantaged community of Solio. Thousands of Canadian students raised the money for the new classroom facilities while following along and participating virtually throughout the expedition. The 12 students went on to climb and summit the second highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kenya. The expedition was led by Elia Saikaly, in partnership with Dr. Norm O’Reilly from the University of Ottawa and Gavin Bate in support of the Moving Mountains Trust.
