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?
Kijk eens lieve allemaal. Jullie hebben mij gesponsord en het ging goed. Ik was zelfs de 3e van alle dames van Simavi qua tijd. :) Er zijn ook foto's gemaakt. Mocht iemand die willen zien, mail me? Dank jullie wel.

"We all finished in beautiful times, although we had sunshine, rain and hail. You can check your time here: https://uitslagen.nl/uitslag?id=2017110502103
Just fill in your name and you will find your time.
We also raised a wonderful amount for the Wash and Learn program: € 6.607,15!!!! Wow good job to you all. This will be higher due to the co-funding of Aqua for All of 80%. It will be € 11.892,87. With this amount we can help 1 complete school in Kenya, Uganda or Tanzania with water and sanitation. I will see with the program officer of this project which school we are going to help and I will inform you guys about this. But this is nog all because the rotary also raised money with this run. They will let me know as soon as possible what the amount is. They were very pleased that we came to the run with such a big group. ""
