I'm raising money for www.changinglivesmalawi.com Another classroom is needed at Bright Futures Secondary School for the new students who will start in September. My sister and brother-in-law run this charity as volunteers.
My challenge: As many of you know, I had breast cancer and had to have a breast removed. Nothing was straightforward as I had lots of infections and more operations. Whilst I was waiting for my mastectomy, I set myself a walking challenge and help to raise money for a shower block for the orphans whom Changing Lives Malawi helps to support. Now I am awaiting reconstructive surgery and need to reduce my BMI. So, for the month of July, I am setting myself another challenge - to walk 200km.
Can you help me please to keep me motivated? I need to achieve my goal of reducing my BMI prior to my next surgery and I want to help raise funds for a new classroom for orphans in northern Malawi. Please help me? Thank you, Joanne x

We support a variety of projects, the end goal being sustainability and self-sufficiency. 500+ orphans are fed once a week, some walking 20km. There are no charities feeding children in schools so all are hungry. We support a nursery for 75 preschoolers and phase 1 of a secondary school has opened and we are currently fundraising for more classrooms and teachers accommodation. 100% of donations goes to projects.
