Ten female mountain climbers are preparing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to encourage girls and women around the world that they can achieve anything with effort and education.

The climbers, seven from Nepal, two from Tanzania and one from South Africa, include two women who benefited from World Food Programme school meals when they were children.

Gerry Adams discussed the historic climb with World Food Programme Spokesperson Jane Howard on the line from Rome.
