Aug. 17, 2011

Richmond women's lacrosse sophomore Allie Ware traveled to Africa as part of a volunteer effort to bring awareness to orphanages in Africa.

Ware traveled with the Young Life Africa Expeditions and was based in the Masai Village of Tanzania. Ware worked and lived in the village and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro as a way to bring awareness to orphanages in Africa.

Ware raised $5,200 by way of donations and selling t-shirts to fund the trip. Ware's first week in the Masai Village was spent working on an unfinished medical clinic. Ware helped install windows, clean the facility and paint the clinic. Ware also made daily trips to the local school to visit children.

After her week in the village, Ware then departed to begin climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Ware hiked for seven days and battled inclement weather and dropping temperatures. Ware reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro at almost 20,000 feet.

Ware said the trip was a life-changing experience and being mentally tough was especially important when climbing the mountain.

Ware is thankful she had the experience to learn a new culture, learn a new language and help those in need.
