Please help this worthy cause. Almost everyone reading this blog had the opportunity to attend school, to learn to read and write. So imagine if you never had that opportunity….
Like millions of women and girls in developing countries, Sopheap walks to collect food and firewood for her family every day. The burden of walking often keeps girls out of school and women from working to earn an income. See her story here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMBczbJwRec
Join thousands of Australians in March 2013 walking to raise funds to empower women and girls out of poverty.

“Imagine if you had to walk at least 10,000 steps or eight kilometres a day while carrying 20 kilograms on your back or head.
Now imagine doing this in the blistering sun or torrential rain.
This is a reality for millions of women and girls in developing countries who are burdened by hours of walking each day to collect food, water and firewood for their families. What’s worse is that hours spent walking reduce the time women and girls have to overcome poverty by going to school, accessing health services and earning an income” – Care Australia
Can you spare $10?
Help me raise $1500.
$1,500 can provide malnourished children and pregnant women in remote communities with health services for one year.
Help make a difference and close the gap.
This year I am walking 10,000 steps per day for one week in the month of March as part of “walk in her shoes”
