Why are we doing this?
Our purpose is not just to have a wonderful walk on a beautiful coastline but to raise funds for CHILD’s Trust. We have 3 amazing Houses of Hope, where children who have lost their parents are brought up in a family environment. These children would have received the most basic education, as they came from small villages in rural communities in India and Bangladesh. They certainly would not have had the opportunity of any formal qualifications, let alone a diploma or degree.
CHILD’s Trust wants to provide them with an amazing opportunity to break the cycle of the orphan where they can be raised in a family, meeting their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. In addition to these basic needs is an opportunity to provide them with an awesome education and then the chance to take on the challenges of a job that will provide them (and their families) with a decent income.
Join us from an hour to the whole trip!
We'll be starting the walk in Weymouth on Monday 22nd May and finishing in Beaulieu, Hampshire on Saturday 27th May.
We are planning to make ourselves redundant as a charity by giving them the chance to be a part of the future of their communities. They can then repeat this for others, with the resources that they may have. This has already started with the first five children going through a higher-level education; we now have a Lawyer, a Pharmacist, two qualified Nurses and a future Chartered Accountant who is also a part-time Pastor of a Church. In the pipeline are two more Nurses, another Pharmacist, and a future Hotel Manager. This has been funded by the generous donations of our supporters.
we need your help!
We will probably need about £150,000 to achieve our target over the next ten years but you will be pleased to know that we are hoping to raise about £20,000 through this sponsored walk, who knows maybe more! We would love you to join us; we just ask you to raise a contribution towards our goal and to tell your friends and family about our project and what we are trying to do.
