Teresa McLain, the executive producer of the documentary inspired by the trip, stopped by the 9NEWS studios Saturday morning to talk about the program.
It's called "Inspire me Africa," a trip for nearly 30 teachers with one vision, teaming up to hike Mount Kilimanjaro. McLain has traveled to Africa with the teachers and helped to raise money for the country as well.
The documentary follows the teachers after their trip, and highlights the life-changing impacts of the journey.
