The Accra International Marathon (AIM) has sponsored two boys from Emmoa Foundation to join the Junior Mountaineers.
The Junior Mountaineers undertake survival and outdoor skills training and engage in hikes outside Accra on a regular basis. The beauty is in learning about nature and also surviving the outdoors and camping. It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet people from various cultures and backgrounds and learn from each other.
Not only do the kids get fit, but they learn endurance, teamwork, discipline and a love of nature, which translates into more care for the environment. They also get the feeling of accomplishment by having achieved something big at the end of each hike.
Thank you AIM and Junior Mountaineers for this wonderful opportunity!
