We have witnessed people climbing Kilimanjaro to fundraise money for their local hospitals, to raise awareness about a social issue etc.

You could be the youngest person to climb Kilimanjaro. The youngest mother, the youngest married couple, the oldest female, etc. We have witnessed people with disabilities setting incredible records. If not set a record, you may try breaking existing records too.
Benefit #6: World vegetation zones change right before your eyes
Since it has five different vegetation zones, you will be metaphorically traveling the world from the equator to the North Pole. You will start trekking in the tropical rainforest and summit at the arctic vegetation zone. Other zones that you will go through are the alpine desert, moorland zone, and farmland zone.
Benefit #7: Celebrate something special in a unique way
What about getting engaged on top of Africa? Or celebrating your wedding anniversary on the summit of the highest mountain in Africa?

When you climb Kilimanjaro you directly contribute to supporting a local community in Tanzania by way of employment and indirectly through the social projects that your tour operator does such as construction of health centers, school building repairs, environment conservation initiatives etc.
