Moroccan Charity Trek

Hunters Branch Manager enters
High Atlas Summit Trek

Sue O'Brien,  Branch Manager at Hunters Halifax, is taking part in a 6 day trek in Morocco in September 2012 to raise money for AfriKids - a grass roots child rights organisation working to improve life for Ghana's most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

You can read Sue's story here - and if you wish to support her in this worthy quest, there is a link to make a donation. Any amount, however small, would be much appreciated.

"I'm taking part in a 6 day trek in Morocco in September this year known as the High Atlas Summit Trek, which will see me (hopefully) getting to the top of one of the highest peaks in North Africa: Jebel Toukbal which stands at 4,167m (13,671ft). The money raised will directly benefit children in Africa. The name of the charity I am supporting is AfriKids - a child rights organisation working in Northern Ghana to alleviate acute child suffering and poverty. My target is £2,500 - I have a long way to go to reach the target and limited time to do so!

AfriKids is a unique charity who passes every penny to their projects in Ghana. They also have a mission to close their UK branch by 2018 thus making their Ghana projects 100% self sustainable - meaning they do not want to continue to depend on UK charitable donations.

The charity believes that change must not breed reliance: if the solution is not sustainable, it is not development.  I therefore feel like the money I raise will really make a difference.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page".
