Grab your running shoes, we are going on an adventure!
We are therefore very happy to announce that the #RunWithFriends campaign is back on, especially in Cambodia with the Angkor Wat Half Marathon (4th December) and in Bangkok with the Marathon (20th November!)
Can't attend or don't want to run?? No probleeeeeeeem, just challenge yourself at a day and time of your convenience and encourage your relatives to sponsor you!
To support the education of marginalized children and help them to go back to school!
Friends-International is an award-winning NGO and social enterprise empowering marginalized children, youth and caregivers in South East Asia. Last year, we supported thousands of children, youth and their families to get through the COVID crisis through education, training, entrepreneurship or employment.
This year, many children are still deprived of education despite that most schools reopened. Join #RunWithFriends to help us provide education support to marginalized children.
Every dollar counts and we are grateful for any support no matter the size. Here a few examples of the impact you could have...
$5 - a school bag for a child
$15 - free school lunches for a child for a month
$25 - one school kit (including a uniform, pens, books...) for a child to go to school
$50 - one month of vocational training for one student
$150 - educational material for our classrooms
$250 - all costs to help one youth to start their own small business
$500 - one year of sports and recreation materials for 250 students
$1,000 - five families provided with training and material to start a poultry business
$5,000 - six months of vocational training for 16 students
How Can I Join?
No matter your fitness ability and whether you want to do a 3k walk or running a full marathon! No matter whether you're running solo or in teams, with your colleagues, friends or family members, and where you run ! We welcome everyone!
