BENEFITING: UNICEF USA
EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014
Welcome to my fundraising page!! Read below for details on the challenge.
The Team Kantar Challenge is an event where participants are challenged by Kantar (the parent company of my employer, Millward Brown) to complete a certain activity while raising funds for the Brighter Futures project in aid of UNICEF.
Our mission through the project is to bring Brighter Days to vulnerable children in Bangladesh, Bolivia and Malawi. The programs focus on:
1. Bangladesh - The re-integration of working children into education while providing legal support and heatlhcare services.
2. Bolivia - Protecting young childeren and adolescents against exploitation and violence by creating an understanding of child rights and ensuring they are protecting in the legislative system.
3. Malawi - Help children who have lost both parents to HIV/AIDS. UNICEF builds 'Community Corners' that provide much needed support, nutrition, education, and protection.
This year the Team Kantar Challenge is a 6 day trek in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. I have never participated in an event like this before, (heck, I have never even really gone camping before!), but I could not be more honored and excited to be involved in this event and support the amazing work being done by UNICEF.
