I am aiming to be the first person to run from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. As well as making friends and learning about Vietnamese Culture, I aim to fund-raise and raise the profile of children’s access to education and women’s empowerment. I intend to visit schools and charities down the length of the Vietnam. My trip is 100% self funded and all donations will go directly to my chosen charities.
Sadly, in Vietnam, children are unable to access public education without a birth certificate. The charities that I am running on behalf of, work tirelessly with street children, orphans and families living in poverty to organise and fund the necessary paperwork and documents. They also provide necessary health care and a safe, fun learning environment.
I have worked across the globe as a primary school teacher for the past 13 years and strongly believe that every child should have access to education to ensure a brighter future for themselves and their families.https://namrunsnam.com/
