The name “Serengeti” conjures up images of vast plains dotted with flat-topped Acacia tress, lions scouting the horizon from the top of rocky outcrops (Remember Lion King?), cheetahs hiding in long grasses and great birds soaring in the endless blue skies.

For 10 days – from May 1 – 10th, 61 participants and 15 teams walked, cycled or ran across the Serengeti – virtually – and raised more than $26,000 for women and girls in northern Tanzania.

TEMBO Canada is a federally incorporated registered Canadian charity that partners with local organizations in Tanzania to address issues of girls’ education, empowerment of women, poverty and human rights.

TEMBO believes in the power of education and the ways in which education can transform communities.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

– Nelson Mandela
