In October we will climb Mount Kilimenjaro. It will take us 1 week to make it to the top. It is going to be an epic adventure of trekking, climbing, camping and it will be tough. This struggle to get to the top is what the youth of Uganda's rural community face each day.

I'm climbing this mountain for Regina my mentee and all the other mentees in RGCM's mentoring program. Regina's family cannot afford to educate her and so have tried to marry her to men; sometimes more than twice her age. Men who could be her grandfather and would expose her to a dangerous reality; stripping any possibility of escaping poverty. She has fought to pay her own school fees and buy all the scholastic materials she needs. I remember begging to stay at home and even ditching classes, and here she is fighting to GO to school.

Her education is not only benefiting her but all those who are blessed to meet this strong young woman. Then IF she chooses to have her own children she will be able to support them financially and emotionally to educate them therefore breaking the cycle of poverty in one generation. Today I hope to help her make her dreams come true and help her empower and protect other girls in her community.
