As Bangladesh turned 40 in 2011, Wasfia Nazreen, a rights-activist, writer and development practitioner, ventured out to climb the Seven Summits, the highest mountains in each of the seven continents. This is the first time a Bangladeshi has taken up such a challenge and she has already reached the top of Aconcagua, the summit of South America on 16th December, Bangladesh’s 40th Victory day and Kilimanjaro, the summit of Africa on 2nd October. Wasfia is headed to Everest, the summit of Asia next.
“I am fully determined to reach the top of all seven continents and have invested everything I knew in my life on this mission. I hope you will join me and help me reach my target! The world must listen to Bangladesh, and hear her across the heights of Kilimanjaro to Denali, Aconcagua to Sagarmatha!”
