Our Impact

Europe

In July of 2019, Mark climbed Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe. Project 43324 supported SOS Children’s Villages Russia, an organization located in the district of Tomilino that provides support to the local children and their families. In addition to monetary donations, Project 43324 also donated activity books and art supplies.

Mark dedicated his climb of the highest mountain in Europe to the superstars at SOS Children’s Villages Russia. Before his climb, he visited the children’s village, where he was able to meet the children and get a special flag signed by them.

Their warm wishes and signatures accompanied Mark to the top of Europe!

The flag was later deposited in the children’s village and put on display where it can remind those, that anything is possible!

South America

In February of 2019, Mark climbed Aconcagua, the highest mountain in South America. Project 43324 supported Quinta Betel, a remote children’s home at the base of the Andes that provides support to the local children and their families. With help from monetary donations, Project 43324 was able to connect Quinta Betel through the installation of a 40-ft wireless internet tower on the property. The internet was officially up and running as of Tuesday, April 10th, 2019!

The internet is one of, if not the single most powerful tool for education. The kids needed access to WiFi-enabled devices for assistance with school projects, homework, etc which is why getting the remote children’s home connected was a primary focus. As education evolves and adapts with technology, so must Quinta Betel in how it utilizes educational resources.

Project 43324 also donated laptops which will not only help Quinta Betel but all children’s homes in the region with after-school programs and alternative therapy!

Africa

In October of 2017, Mark climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Project 43324 supported Stella Maris English Medium Primary, a school that provides education to the underprivileged children of the local villages in Tanzania. With help from monetary donations, Project 43324 was able to aid in the construction of a new dining hall, that holds 350+ students for school assemblies. Activity books and art supplies were also donated.
