BENEFITING: Global Partners for Development
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Shirley and I have chosen to do this together, each walking 1/2 marathon to support Global Partners for Development (GPFD) programs in East Africa. GPFD funds Clean Water wells and delivery systems, Education Construction and Girls Scholarship programs, and other programs related to Health and Medical access. We are passionate about these programs, which are focused on the very poor, most living on only a few dollars a day of income. GPFD has focused on Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania development as these countries have fairly stable governments and development work is very effective there. For this event, we will target most donations for Girls scholarship programs.
