In what is perhaps the most ambitious fundraising challenge yet for a Canter Levin & Berg staff member, Sebastian Dyszkiewicz, a member of our IT department, is planning to climb Africa’s highest mountain in August this year. Sebastian will be taking part in the ‘Climb for Clean Water’ raising money for Dig Deep, a charity that provides safe, clean water to communities in Kenya.
The Climb for Clean Water sees fundraisers embark upon a six day ascent of Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and, at 5,895 metres, the tallest free standing mountain on the planet. Through his efforts, Sebastian is hoping to raise £3,000 to cover the cost of the trip and also to help Dig Deep continue its mission to bring safe, clean water to some of the 10 million Kenyans who currently don’t have access.
Sebastian explained why he chose to sign up for the expedition, saying:
"I have always wanted to do something bigger, something more important that could help people who need it the most. I was fortunate enough to meet friends who were even more enthusiastic and they introduced me to Dig Deep.
I decided to choose DigDeep because it’s different compared with many other charities. It gives me the opportunity to actually meet people who need our help and understand their needs. It will also give me a chance to widen my knowledge about different cultures which has been my dream for a very long time.
With your help I will be able to raise the required amount and see for myself the progress that has been made improving the life conditions for people who really need it."

Across the world a child dies every 21 seconds from a water related disease simply because their community doesn’t have access to clean water and basic sanitation.
This is why Dig Deep works with schools in Kenya to provide them with the means to access clean drinking water. One solution to this problem is to install a rain water catchment which hygienically collects rain falling onto a school’s roof and stores it in nearby water tanks. This system typically costs less than £1,500 and ensures that students no longer have to be threatened by water borne diseases when studying for their exams.
