Albinism Awareness Is On After 6 Albino Women Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro

The fight to empower albino (s) across Africa is on after six women from different African countries with this rare skin tone attempted to make it to the peak of mountain Kilimanjaro which is the highest mountain in Africa and located in Uganda’s neighborhood country, Tanzania.

These albino women were basically from Tanzania, Kenya, Senegal, Nigeria, South Africa, and Zimbabwe respectively aiming to bring light to the negativity they face as albinos.

The trek of these women to the mountain summit began on 1st October this year, but unfortunately only one made it to the peak which is known as “Uhuru peak”.  Of all the 6 ladies from Zimbabwe managed to make it all the way to the summit.

Talking to journalists miss Nodumo Ncomanzi said the struggles they faced up on the mountain reflect the daily struggles they go through as albino people all over the world.

“It’s one thing to promise climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and completely a different thing to actually climb it.  Basing on what we truly went through up there, we are clearly very pleased with each ones accomplishments.”

The message we’re trying to put across is still on because not all the 6 of us made it to the summit. I think the effort we put in trying to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is huge and will help in shedding light to the voices of people as my kind.  She added

The campaign has just started and we are definitely planning to embark on various ventures to bring light to our challenges as albino people.
