Johannesburg- Leanne Manas and a group of other celebrities are ready to tackle Mount Kilimanjaro. 

"I am about to embark on the biggest journey of my life and I need your help!," Leanne wrote on Twitter. 

Leanne will be joining Isidingo actor Jack Devnarain in the Trek4Mandela Challenge in July to raise funds for underprivileged  teenage girls. 

"In July this year I have decided to climb Kilimanjaro- something that I have never in my wildest dreams ever imagined I would Do! After being approached by the Nelson Mandela Foundation to achieve this unthinkable task in support of young girls who cannot attend school for many days during the year simply because they cannot afford sanitary towels!," she said. 

Leanne added that she's decided to get out of her comfort zone to help make a change. "So I am getting out of my comfort zone for a change and putting all my energy and effort into helping these young girls!," she added. 

You can also help! Please support by SMSing LEANNE to 42513. Each sms costs R30 and all funds donated to a find that aims to support 270 000 girls nation wide.

All the best Leanne!
