WATCH: Activist Climbs World's Highest Mountains in Support of Women in the Democratic Republic of Congo
Climb Take Action is an online community and initiative founded by Georgina Miranda with the goal of climbing The Seven Summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. Georgina has dedicated herself to this challenge in the hopes of raising awareness and funds to help the women and children in Democratic Republic of Congo. Funds raised through Climb Take Action benefit V-Day's work in Congo and City of Joy, as well as International Medical Corps.
"I embarked on this journey...not only to fulfill my personal dream to climb the seven summits in the world, but also to bring awareness to the harsh conditions and realities women experience daily in DRC," says Miranda. "These women inspire me to climb and to take action and I hope that my work will also inspire others to help the people of DRC."
