EVENT: WE Villages

Highland Park Middle School Dallas, TX

THE STORY:

 The Run the Extra Mile event is a charity run organized and hosted by WE School students at Highland Park Middle School (Dallas, TX). Inspired by the WE Volunteer Now speakers who presented to the 7th grade in February, the students hope to raise money to fight hunger in Kenya. By partnering with WE Villages, all proceeds and sponsorship money from this event will be used to fund sustainable food projects in Kenya. Special note to all sponsors - please list your name as the sponsor and the name of the student you are sponsoring for the run. Thank you! 



WE Charity wrote -

Kenya is a beautiful country of sweeping savannahs, dense forests, snow-capped highlands, and palm-lined coasts. With its beauty and abundant wildlife comes booming tourism and, in some places, great wealth. But there is also great poverty.

Almost 30 percent of Kenyans live on less than $1.25 a day, which the World Bank classifies as extreme poverty. Twenty-six percent of Kenyan children between the ages of five and 14 are child laborers. A quarter of Kenyan girls under the age of 15 are married.

16 years ago WE began partnering with the Maasai and Kispigis communities in the Narok South District of southwestern Kenya. Together, we have built schools, libraries, water projects, latrines, kitchens and teacher accommodations. Community leaders supported our development and education projects, and implemented active women’s, men’s and youth groups.
