THE STORY:

Two months ago, I was presented with the opportunity to join a rock-star team of social entrepreneurs and public health professionals to raise awareness for sanitation issues worldwide. Twenty-two of us will meet in Kathmandu on Wednesday and our trek begins Friday. Eight days later, we will reach base camp, at an altitude of 17,598 ft. From there, three members of our team will carry the Toilet Hackers banner to the peak, making global sanitation the world’s “highest” priority.

For me, this trip is personal. My work over the last three years has been focused on helping poor, marginalized women recognize that not only they have a voice, but that they can do something about it. Yet, in many parts of the world, young girls drop out of school when they start menstruating because they don’t have access to pads and sanitary napkins. Or worse: in parts of Nepal, many women are exiled each month during their menstrual cycle – often leaving them vulnerable to rape and other horrors – because they are believed to be bad luck or dirty. Can you imagine??? That’s just it, we can’t.

That is why am asking that you join me on this journey. My goal is to raise at least $500 for Toilet Hackers so they can continue to raise awareness for sanitation issues. A donation of $10 will provide 1 toilet to a community, but that one toilet has the potential to help young girls stay in school.

Sarah - we've loved following your adventure on Facebook. You've inspired me to read two books on Everest and I've also watched three seasons of Discovery's series "Everest: Beyond the Limit." So, it's pretty much like I climbed the mountain, too! 4 years ago
