In September 2021, a team of eight, including the 68-year-old founder of Thrive, Dale Bolton, set out to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain. They did this to raise awareness for Thrive’s work, conquer obstacles and showcase that significant change starts with a single step.

Filmmaker Nate Slaco documented the story along the seven-day Machame route to create an impactful documentary to be shown worldwide.

It was tough climbing,” said Ambrose Mootian, the Executive Director for Thrive for Good, Kenya. “But when I thought of the reason behind the campaign, I felt more energized. Knowing that getting to the summit would help raise funds to bring more change to our communities gave me strength to push to the top!”
