COMPASSIONATE SWAZILAND AT SIBEBE WALK 2017
Sibebe is a granite mountain in Swaziland, located 10km from the capital city Mbabane. It is the second-largest monolith in the world and the largest exposed pluton, rising 350m above the valley of the Mbuluzi River. It is also known as “Bald Rock”. The Mbabane-Mbuluzi Rotary Club organizes an annual fund-raising walk up Sibebe Rock called the Sibebe Survivor. Several thousand people take part each year. The challenge of this walk is climbing up the hill and back again and yet it main purpose is to support charity work. To participant in this walk, every individual is expected to register at a fee prior to the date of the walk. With the funds raised in such an event is then used to support finance Rotary Foundation projects such as the distribution of wheelchairs and support for government hospitals.
As Compassionate Swaziland we took part as well in support of the mandate, giving back to the society and less privileged. From the field officers in the regions up the hierarchy to the Directors, we geared up as “team Compassionate Swaziland” and showed our compassion to the nation by playing a role in such an event
It was indeed a beautiful, successful and refreshing outreach. A great platform for networking with other companies and organization not forgetting the lesson behind the challenge of hiking which is “team building”.
