The Freedom Climb, a project of Operation Mobilization (OM) brings hope and transforms lives of women and children who are being exploited, enslaved, and trafficked. The Freedom Climb’s objective is to stir compassion, action, and advocacy on the issues of modern day slavery, exploitation and trafficking of women and children globally. They accomplish this by raising funds and awareness to support OM projects around the world focused on these issues.
The goal of the Freedom Climb is to affect the lives of thousands of women and children each year. The purpose of the Freedom Climb is not just about climbing a mountain; it’s a way to engage in this global battle and strategically help these women and children. Climbing these mountains is merely a symbolic gesture of what women and children around the world go through every single day. In January of 2012, 48 women from seven different countries gathered in Tanzania and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro–the world’s tallest free-standing mountain– to declare freedom for those who could not. Climbers from all over the world have continued in that mission. The Climbers are voices for the voiceless; for those who could not declare freedom in their lives and climb out of their circumstances on their own.
We are happy support these women on their mission :: Nepal (Everest Base Camp) and Kilimanjaro. Expeditions to come in Switzerland (Haute Route) and Ecuador.
