NEWS: The Malawi Marathon - the race of a lifetime!
Race for a good cause; 10km, half marathon and the ultimate marathon distances available. Run side by side with members of the local community that you have been volunteering to assist during the week. Wake up at base camp to enjoy sunrises over the beautiful Lake Malawi and socialise around a fire on the beach in the evenings, with a group of like minded people from around the globe.
This volunteer project in rural Kenya is a diverse community program which aims to help those affected by disease, malnutrition, unemployment, limited education and other extreme disadvantages that are faced by the rural communities of Kenya.
Child-headed households in Kenya have seen a dramatic increase due to HIV/AIDS. Without their parents to take care of them and often having been excluded from the community due to the stigma, the children’s living conditions and health seriously deteriorate, leaving behind malnourished and neglected children with no support.
Your help is crucial for the children and other vulnerable groups in the community, such as widows and street children. Help to build or repair homes for vulnerable families, teach vocational skills to children to give them more opportunities in later life, provide vital love and support to young orphans and support poor families as part of a relief program offering food rations and clothing.
