--- OBJECTIVE: Malawi Orphans ---1.5 million, 10 percent of the population is orphan in Malawi ...
Introduction:I run barefoot benefit marathons now for a few years (2010 - Eindhoven, 2011 - Amsterdam, 2012 - Amersfoort). I did this partly to draw attention to 'transition' to a more beautiful world, at the other hand to generate money for the Children of Malawi. "The number of orphans in Malawi get estimated at about 1.3 million out of a population of 13.6 million inhabitants." The primary reason: HIV / AIDS. Can you imagine: 1.5 million orphans in the Netherlands ???
I was born in Malawi (Blantyre) ... and am lucky that ...
Earlier barefoot marathons --- ---In 2011, collected in this way in 1350 euros, destined for Warchild and SOS Children's Villages. My purpose this match this amount at least. And this time I want to run a marathon outside of the Netherlands, and decided to include a high mountain in it: the Mont Ventoux, France.
Intended direction: 'Rainbow villages': 'togetherhoods' which feel up-scalable in a fast way (Senegal is developing 14.000 ecovillages, so why could Malawi not do the same?). Please read this page:http://www.iwanjka.com/malawi
---- Refugee ProblemsAnd, o yes, these places might form a "solution" for the migration and refugee problems: which African would now live in cold Europe, if he can live somewhere in Africa in peace and prosperity?
--- Utilization of money ---
The first 3500 euros is divided over the following projects:1. Kondanani.org - A children's village in Malawi.2. Sos-childrensvillages.org/where-we-help/africa/malawi/blantyre - A children's village in Malawi.3. Flojamalawi.nl - 100 children daytime education and shelter - "children's day" in Malawi.4. Raisingmalawi.org - An organization that focuses on education in Malawi.5. Gofundme.com/24euf77k - Perma culture / food project. Kenya (intra-Africa knowledge development)... the intention going along with the donation is that the money is used for doing a more-years during permaculture pilot/experiment. 'Make it real'...
If there raised more than 3500 euros, than I consider to do one or more of the following:* Create a foundation 'Children of Malawi' ('stichting in dutch') in which we can house these kind of fund raising actions. * Buy a ticket and go one month myself to Malawi for dedicating my talents (I am a graduated information engineer, for example). * Buy some lands locally which will be owned by a foundation and can be use for the development of 'rainbow villages' --- MY CHALLENGE: MONT VENTOUX ---After 3 'flat' marathons, it felt time for a mountain. My eye got set on the Mont Ventoux ' cases. The distance from Bedoin to the top is just about 21km ... you guessed it: I'm running up and down. That makes 42km and 1622 of altitude. It is my planning to do this in October 2016. Info Route:en.cols-cyclisme.com/provence/france/mont-ventoux-depuis-bedoin-c34.htm
--- My question to you ---I ask you to contribute a some money per kilometer I run. You donate for example, 10 cents per km, then you will transfer up to 4.22 euros. At 1 euro per kilometer you transfer up to 42.2 euros, etc. I don't guarantee that I'll make it up and down, but I'll do my best!
Of course, companies can also sponsor.
If you want to make a donation anyways, you can do so at: IBAN - bank account: 'NL09RABO0149987986', account holders name "I.Geerdink, place 'Nijkerk, mentioning 'Children of Malawi'.
