After months of training, the Edinburgh Marathon is almost upon us! We've decided that if we are going to put ourselves through 26 odd miles of sheer pain and torture Fiona with at least 4 hours of Zach's chat then we should really try to do it ...

After months of training, the Edinburgh Marathon is almost upon us! We've decided that if we are going to put ourselves through 26 odd miles of sheer pain and torture Fiona with at least 4 hours of Zach's chat then we should really try to do it for a worthwhile cause...

This summer Zach will be part of a group of 5 Dundee University students travelling to Tanzania as part of the DARE Volunteering Society, with the aim being to establish and develop sustainable projects while out there. Having used the last few years in Tanzania to work with an orphanage set up, this year will take a new angle looking at establishing a means of teaching children in a death/blind school, as well as the mainstream STAR school.

All volunteers entirely fund their own travel and accommodation and DARE takes no admin fees ensuring that every penny raised goes directly towards the projects. We try our best to see that the funds raised are used in the most sustainable ways possible. eg In Ghana last summer funds went towards directly improving standards in an orphanage by building and installing new bunkbeds for each the children to replace the 4 old beds and blankets on the floor which they shared as well as funding the building of a guesthouse which will eventually make the orphange self sustainable. 

Any donations would be much appreciated; according to Tesco 'Every little helps' (or something like that?).
