International Day of Charity - KHT 50KM CHALLENGE

Starting on the International Day of Charity on the 5th September we are looking to raise money to support 17 children getting to and from school.

ACCEPT OUR 50 KM CHALLENGE: walk or run up to 50km from 5 September to 5 October 2023, track your results and send us updates and photos!! We are looking to open a new bus route for another 17 Karen students living in remote villages and struggling to access education! This can be done as a sponsored walk/ run or for your own sense of satisfaction, exercise or personal challenge, but at the end of your challenge don't forget to support our cause and donate here.

The KHT School Transport project supply Karen villages with the support to run their own transport service to access education. The buses are needed, as it can be difficult for Karen communities to access education. Most villages within Mae Hong Son have a primary school within ten kilometres of the village. However, secondary schools are limited to the larger towns and can be located up to 50 km away, whilst higher education establishments are even further.

Walking can be dangerous and therefore many parents keep their children at home, especially their girls. Access to education is therefore largely dependent on transportation capabilities. As many families live below the poverty line, there is usually little income to cover such expenses, resulting in children leaving education to seek employment or support their parents at home.
The provision of a school transport service is therefore a simple solution to ensure access to education for Karen communities.

So far, the school transport project have provided 12,000 Karen children with access to education. With your support we can reach even more!
