Team Fierce + RUN4ACAUSE WIHS
RUN4ACAUSE & CARE Canada have joined forces by participating in the 4th consecutive Walk In Her Shoes relay event on Sunday March 9th, 2014. Supporting women and girls on International Women's Day
Our team are raising awareness and much needed funds to empower women and girls around the world to fight global poverty.
Here is the project our Leg 5 is raising funds for:
PROJECT: Basic Education for Afghanistan Consortium.
LOCATION: Afghanistan – BEACON Project (2012-2015)
TOTAL IMPACT: 54,690 people.
The Basic Education for Afghanistan Consortium’s (BEACON) ultimate goal is to ensure that children and youth have the knowledge and skills to be productive members of Afghan society. This project will focus on increasing accessibility of community based education in rural areas.
In the poorest communities around the world, women and girls are often the ones tasked to collect water, firewood or other basic necessities of life. They walk on average 6 kilometres a day (approximately 8,000 steps) while carrying the equivalent of a suitcase. This leaves little time to attend school, access health services or earn money to support their families, but you can help.
All donations will be leveraged by the Canadian Government 3:1. That means for every $1 - we actually raise $3.
The Walk i Her Shoes 103km relay run has 8 legs and supports 8 integral CARE projects around the globe.
Thank you from Team Fierce!
