"I am going to climb to the top!" 

"I am going to climb to the top, Penninah declares, "because I have to go and speak."

Penninah is a 48-year-old smallholder farmer from Bukadea, in Eastern Uganda. Last October she and 29 other female farmers from across Africa gathered at Mount Kilimanjaro to demand that governments stand up for women's land rights.

The overwhelming majority of local farmers in Africa are women, but in many communities they dont have control over the land they care for. We support local women and their communities to take their land, and claim their rights. 

Will you climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the footsteps of these women farmers and continue what they have started?
