Women from across the globe will begin their ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania on January 11, 2012, the National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the U.S. Climbers will be raising awareness, and finances for women and children being oppressed, enslaved, exploited and trafficked.

 

The Freedom Climb goal for 2012 is to affect the lives of 10,000 women through projects that break the cycles of poverty, shame, slavery, and despair. These projects include micro-loans, education, skills training, and protection from exploitation.

For me, success came in the form of having a group of women trust me & my experience to take them safely to the Roof of Africa and back. For my team members, the success came from taking a huge risk in order to achieve something they’ve only dared dream about. They challenged themselves, physically & mentally, and they won. And, of course, success came for all in actually summiting the mountain also! Such a great time; I have to do it again.
