On 5 August 2009, Jelmer Ikink and Roman Lentz stood on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa, and felt the need to do more - climb more mountains, but more importantly, give support to the people who are in need of so much more. "no mountain too high" (“the Organization”) is a project to support micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries.
Mission: To promote, support, and cooperate with micro-entrepreneurs by raising awareness and funds to bring attention to the formidable challenges micro-entrepreneurs face, through the challenge of climbing the highest mountain on each continent.
