We're on our way back to Tanzania to continue our efforts to support the women in Lake Eyasi. This year's visit will involve finishing 2 houses and a duka (store in Swahili), and building inside toilets for existing homes. There's also the microloan program and computer and English education for the girls and the community at the vocational training center. Check out the Life Matters Facebook page for updates, and look at Lightness's Women's Projects for more details on the different projects. Perhaps you'd like to join us in February 2020!


    2020 is full of adventure here at PPS! It starts with Yusuf and Jaima leading a journey up Mt. Kilimanjaro and then a return to Lake Eyasi to work on our projects there. Go with Rick on a via ferrata exploration of the Dolomites, a 4x4 Adventure in Southwest Australia, or a multi-sport adventure in the Azores. We are even looking into 2021- New Zealand, Iceland, back to Vietnam by bike and more. If any of these interest you, email us and we'll get the information packet!


    It's been a few years since PPS has climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, but we're finally heading back! Join Jaima and Yusuf in January 2020 for this iconic climb to the highest point in Africa. Reaching the summit will be a distant second to the connections you'll make with your fellow climbers and the porters and guides who help you up the mountain. There's also an option for a safari if you choose to go early or stay after. If you've ever thought about climbing Kili, now's the time to do it while Yusuf is still climbing! Call or email for details.


    Capture the world through the lens of your camera! Reed has a wide variety of photo trips coming up in the next couple of years. In October he's going to shoot the color and culture of Bhutan- best go now as the western influence is becoming more prevalent. There's one more spot on Cuba in February of 2020, and due to the popularity of this year's trip, he'll be returning to Namibia next year. You can also join him for Peru in September, a favorite trip taken at a different time of year! Contact us or Reed if you are interested!


    It's time to dream! Is there an adventure that you've always wanted to have, a place you've always wanted to visit, or a culture you've always wanted to experience? So often we hear, "That trip is on my bucket list!" or "I've promised myself I am going to do that one day." As Rick slowly moves into retirement, he's hoping to spend his days creating for others the connections he's made in his decades of adventure- bringing together community, culture, nature and self. Let us know what adventure you've been dreaming of, and we can make those connections for you.
