THE STORY:

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children" Nelson Mandela

Why I'm Running:

I had the privilege of working with Ubuntu Education Fund during the beginning stages of its Early Childhood Program (ECD), and this experience allowed me to see firsthand the dedication that Ubuntu's driven and talented teachers and staff encompass. After witnessing the impact that these hardworking individuals have had on vulnerable children living in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, I have decided to run the New York City Marathon to raise money for the organization's ECD Program.



I fully support Ubuntu's mission to provide world-class health and educational support to these orphaned and vulnerable children living in Zwide, enusring access to higher education and employment, and I hope that the money raised through the marathon will continue to support the commendable ECD program.



What I'm Running For:

In February 2012, Ubuntu launched Positive Start, the first ECD program in Port Elizabeth’s townships. Positive Start extends Ubuntu’s education to a new and important group – toddlers. Research shows that the early years are crucial in children’s development, and now 43 eager toddlers get world-class services from a highly trained staff: services that range from an international literacy curriculum to time in the sun growing vegetables. Their family members are involved in every step. Ubuntu provides bus rides to school, visits to the doctor, and a lot of fun.

How Your Donation Helps:

For $100, you can send a child to class with school supplies, a uniform, and a backpack for the first time in her life.

For $500, you can buy children furniture and classroom supplies, creating a safe place for them to study and play.

For $2,500, you can give a full class of children access to Ubuntu’s nutrition program, an initiative that feeds healthy breakfasts and lunches to children who might not otherwise get enough to eat.

For $5,000, you can support not just a child’s education, but also his medical and psychosocial care at Ubuntu’s state-of-the-art pediatric clinic.
