WALK WITH US TO HELP CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN RECIFE



COME AND JOIN US on one of our Happy Child International Fundraising Walks this summer.  There is something for everyone.   Like all none-profits we depend on our generous supporters to continue our vital work supporting vulnerable children and young people in Recife, Northeast Brazil.  Fundraising should be fun!  Also the annual fundraising walks give us the opportunity to meet with our supporters and share with them in a more personal way.  We as a team really enjoy these moments.  


Walking is low cost and relatively easy to do.  Knowing the route and having a good guide is essential – both of which we provide!  Walking boosts your mood, exercises your heart and provides all the benefits of fresh air and a healthy dose of vitamin D.  What’s not to enjoy?


This year Happy Child International wants to raise £5,000 to contribute towards the cost of running the Mentoring & Skills Training Project in Recife, Northeast Brazil.  This is an amazing project helping lift vulnerable young people and their families out of poverty. The project gives 40 over 16 year olds the opportunity to build their self-esteem and resilience, improve their interpersonal skills and enables them to acquire technical skills to work in industrial mechanics and business administration. Hands on work experience is supplied by the Gerdau Iron and Steel Company and at the end of the project there is the option to apply for paid work on their company apprenticeship programme. This can be a life changing possibility and earning a salary can completely change their family circumstances. 60 young people have established long term employment through this wonderful project.  YOUR GENEROUS giving would contribute towards the £2.44 per week per student that enables these young people to participate in the project.



You could also organise your own sponsored walk in aid of Happy Child International on a different day or location.
