Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, March 2012 — African countries sent representatives to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro as part of the UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign. Seventy-four men, women and youth made a three-day trek to the top of Africa’s highest mountain – Mt. Kilimanjaro, standing at 5,895m or 19,341-ft above sea level with an extraordinary humanitarian objective. The 74 climbers representing 36 African countries, 14 United Nations agencies, businesses, women’s rights activists and civil society organisations are participating in a continent-wide campaign to end violence against women and girls.
