I am going to run 5 kilometers! Yeah :) Sponsor me in order for girls in schools in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to have access to toilets with water and a door that can be locked. This run is organised for our programme 'Wash & Learn". I wanted to put a specific focus on the girls within the programme since they are most disadvantaged in most of these countries. So I run for those girls!
The realities that many girls in rural Africa need to walk on average 30 minutes to fetch water for the entire family before they go to school. While tired at school there is often no toilet. Or a toilet with no water. Or a toilet with water but not a door that can be locked. How can you be comfortable, safe and concentrate on your studies?
