I BELIEVE CHILDREN SHOULD BE IN SCHOOLS, NOT BROTHELS.

I have decided to RUN FOR A REASON; to make a difference knowing that a little girl will be able to go to school instead of a brothel with our help.  I’m asking all my friends and family to sponsor me to run in the Colour Run, Melbourne on Sunday the 2nd of March, 2014.

This is the first event I am taking part in this year, with plans to sign up to other events throughout the year. Having volunteered in Cambodia during 2013 the country and people hold a special place in my heart. I am Running for a Reason as I believe in the power of education in such a vulnerable climate, and hope to assist in providing girls with a more positive future.

With our contribution, Free To Shine’s team in Cambodia will go out into the rural villages, and when they say rural, they mean rural!  The team will begin searching for a young girl to enrol, gathering information from neighbours, the local village leader, the school director, the girl and her family. They identify the girls most likely to be targeted by traffickers.  Upon enrolment, she will receive uniforms and a bike, a bag full of books and pens and off she will go to school.  The team will visit her regularly, to provide ongoing support and encouragement.

I've set my target at $300, so we will be able to enrol one new girl!
