Mount Kilimanjaro ascent for charity, by AGS Frasers Southern Africa’s Chairman

Monday 03 June 2013

Mount KilimanjaroClimbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, requires commitment, investment of time, energy and a focus on careful planning and execution. And for Gregory Masanet, the Chairman of AGS Frasers Southern Africa, the same skill set is behind AGS Frasers’ rapid expansion and comprehensive coverage of the African continent.

At a height of 5,895 meters, Kilimanjaro rises above the tea plantations in Tanzania, through verdant rainforests to the barren volcanic cones and snowy peaks at the summit. Gregory shares his thoughts: “I was proud to represent AGS Frasers and raise funds for a worthy cause. The climb is not only a AGS Frasers South Africapersonal challenge, it’s also a human adventure and team work between the guide and his assistants”.

The money raised by Gregory will help fund Sylvia Frank's Foster Care home, a local charity in Cape Town,, South Africa which helps care for abandoned and abused children. This is part of the strong commitment by AGS Frasers to support local charities and actively engage with the communities where we operate.

AGS Frasers has a comprehensive network covering all major markets in Africa and offers on the ground expertise in 56 locations in 45 countries in Africa. Specialising in both international and national removals, AGS Frasers has both local expertise and well-developed global reach and processes, making it well-equipped to reach its goal of a total coverage of this fascinating continent by 2016.
