Challenge yourself and help others
I always love to assist different charities by raising money and volunteering my time to people that may need my help. I think that it is important that we give our assistance to people that are less fortunate than us, as that's what life is about right? Helping others and creating a healthy and happy community?
If you believe this is the case and you fancy volunteering your time, have a look at a brilliant organisation called Childreach International. Childreach International aims to work in partnership with local communities in the developing world to try and improve children's rights to success through their healthcare, education and protection.
This charity has very high aspirations to achieving this goal and as they grow and develop as an organization their impact on children's lives becomes more and more apparent.
Here are some of the statistics: In 2010 Increased 40,694 children's access to education Increased 23,330 children's access to healthcare Increased 6,267 children's access to child rights and protection Increased 212 children's access to skilled training Kept 4,868 more children safe
This amazing charity works in seven developing countries including, Pakistan, Nepal, Cambodia, Bangladesh, India and Tanzania. Working in partnership with their local communities to try to achieve and sustain positive change.
They have so many different ways of trying to raise money which include Challenge Events: where you get the chance to test your strength by perhaps climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or cycling across India.
Last year I went to Nepal and climbed to Everest base camp to raise money for Childreach International. Eventhough it was very strenuous and was definitely worthwhile and knowing that I had raised money for such a meaningful charity was such an uplifting feeling.
There are many other programmes such as the Future Building programme, where you help to renovate schools in rural Tanzania, or providing healthcare in remote Nepal as well as global schools initiative, climate plus and the partnership programme. But whatever event you decide to participate in you'll be sure to help Childreach International in their movement for change and giving children the opportunity to unlock their full potential.
But don't just take it from me, why not visit Childreach International's website and see what great stuff they are doing for yourself. You never know it might just inspire you!
