The Duke of Edinburgh Award has long served as a means of encouragement for millions of young people across the world. In promoting personal development, the DofE sees thousands of students each year participate in activities that will aid in a brighter future for themselves and the communities around them. Supporters of the DofE, including Tunde Folawiyo, play an immeasurable role in the success of the DofE and its recipients, further propelling our next generation of leaders toward greatness in all aspects of life.
Young people participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme are encouraged to explore personal growth through volunteering, physical challenges and adventurous journeys meant to broaden their horizons. With this each participant striving for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award must embark on a Residential Project that will ultimately prove a great understanding of the world around them. Set for summer 2015, Kilimanjaro Trek Residential Project, a 2 week experience, will see DofE hopefuls trek Africa’s highest mountain. Ascending Kilimanjaro via the Machame Route – widely acclaimed as the best route for spectacular views – the trip’s cost is £1,925. Payable in manageable installments, the majority of the cost of the trip can be paid for through fundraising efforts. Flight accommodations, guides, permits and food and supplies are all covered under the trip’s cost. Interested participants should consult their Duke of Edinburgh Award leaders before committing to the trek for Residential credit. Contact email@example.com or Kili2015@hotmail.co.uk for more information regarding the Kilimanjaro climb.
The Residential requirements for the DofE Gold Award has proved an indispensable part of the full Duke of Edinburgh Award experience. A thorough understanding of other cultures and the struggles faced by others throughout the world will undoubtedly aid in participating youth’s attitudes of empathy.
Since its establishment in 1956, the Duke of Edinburgh Award has continually inspired youth throughout the world by promoting the basic skills needed for optimal personal growth and discovery. Founded by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh Award has since spread to over 140 countries around the globe. Its international chapters serve as a constant source of support for young people seeking the capabilities to effect real change within their communities. Supporters of the Award such as Tunde Folawiyo and millions of others may be pleased with the positive impact the DofE has had on youth across the world thus far.
