Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for Plan International

In September 2010, a UNIGLOBE British Isles climbing team reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in an effort to raise £35,000 to build a girls school and residence in Mwanza, Tanzania.

The new school, part of Plan International Because I Am a Girl will provide girls with a supportive and safe environment in which to learn and help to lift more families and communities out of poverty.

The rate of girls attending secondary schools in Tanzania is an alarming five percent. Among the reasons for such low attendance are the long distances children must walk to and from classes. These daily journeys expose girls to health and safety risks.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the fourth highest among the world's seven summits and the tallest in Africa, towering nearly 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) above sea level.Watch the video of the team on their journey to reach the peak.
