CAPE TOWN: The academic has committed to summiting Mount Kilimanjaro next year to raise funds for disadvantaged girls.
The announcement was made at Mandonsela’s 56th birthday dinner, organised on Friday by the Imbumba Foundation, where friends, academics and human rights activists celebrated the milestones she has achieved.

Madonsela will join a group that will summit the highest peak in Africa on Human Rights Day, 2019. Next year Trek4Mandela will host two climbs again, the other on Mandela Day, July 18. The initiative is in support of raising funds for keeping girls in school during their menstrual cycle as many have to miss classes because of a lack of sanitary pads.
