A child online activist and the Executive Director of the Child Online Africa, Mrs Amenya has entered the history books as the first Ghanaian woman to summit Africa’s highest mountain, Mt. Kilimajaro in efforts to raise awareness for online safety issues for African children.

Standing at 19,341 feet and 5,895 meters above sea level, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa.

In a statement before embarking on the 5-day journey to the top, the mother of two said the rationale behind the project, “Kili4theAfricanChild” was a mission to “make a case for online safety for the African child”.

It also hopes to raise “awareness on the need to protect the vulnerable and give people especially children the confidence to use the internet without fear.” she added.

On Sunday, the activist made her final touch on the Mountain’s top which is located in Tanzania. The Kilimanjaro range is also a Volcanic mountain namely;“Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira” which makes it one of the Volcanic Seven Summits.

Celebrating the remarkable feat on social media, she expressed her hopes that it helps to also raise funds for more advocacy works.

Congratulations Awo!! The African child is proud of you.
