Kapua team to Ethiopia


Jaana Partanen and Heikki Lamusuo have travelled to Ethiopia where they will participate in the final challenge of Kapua: one week of hike at Simien mountains. At the end of the week they will climb the highest peak of Ethiopia, Ras Dashen (4 550 m).

Kapua raises funds to help the people in developing countries. Kapua Etiopia focuses on supporting handicapped women, health and education. The aim is to work towards the realization of education and human rights of girls and women. During their trip to Ethiopia Jaana and Heikki will get to see how the charitable organizations work and how the funds are spent.
