Come out and participate in Half the Sky’s 2015 Charity Hike and help a child have a chance at a bright future!
Every child deserves to be loved and cared for, but unfortunately there are many children in this world who lack that support and love. Many children who are left to face the world alone at a young age are forgotten in poorly-run institutions. The lacking care and attention at such institutions create deep emotional scars that children carry into adulthood. It is important to properly train caregivers and create sustainable progressive institutions for children without families. You can make a difference in these children’s lives by taking part in Half the Sky’s Charity Hike on November 7th!
What is Half the Sky
Half the Sky is an international NGO that aims to create accessible and replicable programs, to help communities and caregivers aid children who are alone and vulnerable. It achieves its goals by training local staffs and communities on how to stimulate and interact with children. Their training gives caregivers the skills to tailor their care towards each child’s needs and interest.
Since 1998, Half the Sky has impacted and transformed the lives of more than 127,000 children and trained 13,000 caregivers. Their ultimate goal is to one day make a big enough difference so that all children will be empowered with the tools and security to succeed in society.
