I'm making a difference and running at Canberra Color Run on 22nd February 2015 for a cause that's close to my heart. I am attached to this Australian Charity Co-Operation in Development (CO-ID) which is bringing life and learning to Bhola Island in Bangladesh. 

Co-Operation in Development (CO-ID), this Australian charity is bringing life and learning to Bhola Island in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh. 150 million people in a country two-thirds the size of the State of Victoria in Australia.

Everyday life is a constant struggle here, and the basic skills that we take for granted such as learning to read and write are for the fortunate ones - not for everyone.

For 30 years, our charity, CO-ID (Co-Operation In Development Australia Inc.) led by Fred Hyde, has been quietly building schools in one of the poorest areas of Bangladesh, on Bhola Island in the Ganges Delta.

To date, there are 41 schools and we have now built the first 5 pre-schools.

By helping to build the educational system and encourage the acceptance of basic primary education, we are creating a brighter future, using Bangladesh’s greatest resource - the children.
