Children in Crisis
Organized by: Val O'Brien
April 10, 2016
EVENT DATE Apr 24, 2016
I will be running the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon on behalf of Children in Crisis! I'm taking my passion for running and putting it towards a good cause.
According to current global trends, 56 million children will still be out of school in 2015. Education has been called an inoculation against poverty and resurgent conflict. In many post-conflict situations, thousands who have missed out on schooling, are marginalised and too easily whipped up by dangerous leaders into new rounds of conflict. It is in these tough environments that children face illiteracy and major barriers to education - it is one of the reasons Children in Crisis focuses on politically unstable and conflict-affected countries. Help this amazing organization help pull children out of poverty by provided them the tools through education they need to change their life!
