100 kilometres for a good cause

There is a global trend of 100 km marches these days. The idea is to cover 100 kilometres - at a good pace - within 24 hours and without longer breaks. The "marathon of hikers", so to speak. This is a serious athletic challenge that requires training and planning.

The LÖWENMARSCH (Lions Trail) is a variation of this, allowing participants to enter at different stations or to leave earlier. Everyone hikes a distance that is realistic for them and acquires their friends and family to donate an amount to Learning Lions for every kilometer hiked (supporting digital education in Kenya).

Success story from Bavaria: Let’s create one in Berlin!

The Lion's Trail is a highly successful charity event, held annually in Bavaria. In 2023 it attracted 1000 participants, covering 51,566 kilometers and generated more than 200.000€ in donations. As we express gratitude to the dedicated volunteers and sponsors, we look forward to replicating this success in Berlin, by bringing the city’s impact and tech community together. Your support is key to our shared mission and we are excited to host the first-ever Berlin Löwenmarsch on 8th and 9th June 2024.

As a volunteer you can support this hike in various ways:
- hike logistics (station management, etc)
- marketing
- press
- sponsor acquisition
- admin
- other

About Learning Lions

Location:

P.O BOX 344, Lodwar, Turkana 30500, KE

Mission Statement

Learning Lions is an academy that teaches young adults to use technology to earn a decent living. That way outsourcing to Africa finally becomes a viable option.

Description

Learning Lions is a non-profit program that selects, educates and trains young adults living outside urban areas with few job opportunities in high-value skills like software development, graphic design and media production. It is focused on hands-on skills taught by volunteers from around the world that can immediately be used to generate income online. Our follow up program Startup Lions (www.startuplions.org) then helps our trained "Lions" to use the skills they acquired in the training to create their own business in our lakeside IT-Hub, while we source clients for them from around the world.
