Kilimanjaro trek to keep girls in school

kilimanjaro

The CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation and 2014 Tutu Fellow, Sello Hatang, will once again be leading an expedition to trek Mount Kilimanjaro.  Popularly known as the Trek4Mandela, the group is scheduled to summit Kilimanjaro on July 18, in commemoration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday.

The sponsored trek to the summit of Africa's best-known peak - which rises more than 19,000 feet above sea level - is to raise funds for a sanitary pad campaign to keep girls in school.

The campaign raises awareness about one of the main - and unspoken - reasons why so many girls skip school. The expedition is to raise awareness about some of the barriers which girls in South Africa and in many parts of the continent face.
