Yesterday evening Vi and I were taken out for dinner by our old friend Metili. Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of Metili, so here's one of Vi and me instead.

We have just come back from a meeting about the project, held at the British Council offices in Dar es Salaam. Sorry the photo below is not great. The meeting covered some basic facts and figures about the issues that girls face in secondary school and provided an overview of the work that TAI does and the Jali project in particular.

Tomorrow we will be meeting to plan our trip from Dar to Kilimanjaro on Monday. It's a reasonably long, hot journey, about 8 or 9 hours in a little people carrier.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this campaign. I'm not sure how easy it will be to add updates here while we are in Tanzania and especially while going up Mount Kilimanjaro. If I can't use this page then I'll try to post updates to my twitter account https://twitter.com/david_r_whiting

We will start the climb on 3 August and should be back down again, drinking a nice cold beer, on 8 or 9 August. From what I've read it's going to be tough!

Go Violet and David, Chris and I didn't make it to the top. And it doesn't matter of you don't either. It's still bloody hard work and a wonderful cause. Be safe! Good luck and hope you do make it. Mx
