The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Gelt gladiator is a "mud run" . 10km of obstacles and mud to get through to reach our goal. You can find out more about what we are in for here: http://www.geltgladiator.com
So why should you help MOTO?
Sub-Saharan Africa contains some of the world’s lowest income (as per GDP) countries. For many people, living in poverty means that they are at greater risk of health inequality, without the means to effectively prevent, treat and access appropriate health interventions. Not only are there a lack of rehabilitation specialists (including OT), but the prevalence of conditions that may require rehabilitation therapies is increasing). Similarly, marginalised people (such as those who are homeless, or refugees) face health inequality, and can also face the same social stigma experienced by people with disabilities and long-term conditions. These challenges can lead to vulnerability. When illness, disability, or social exclusion becomes an obstacle to daily life, the prospects and equality of those people are compromised.
At MOTO, we believe that empowering and supporting individuals can reignite the "moto wa maisha" - the fire of life (in Kiswahili), and that access to support and rehabilitation therapies are key to reducing vulnerability and isolation, and increasing the chances of a happier, healthier life for individuals and their families.
We are fundraising to contribute to our many activities. If you donate, your money will go towards:
- events to strengthen and build partnerships with the communities we serve (currently in Malawi & Tanzania). This includes providing partner workshops and training, and events with traditional and local authorities.
- supporting trained national and international volunteers to facilitate our programmes in Malawi and Tanzania (by providing funding for necessary resources, travel and living costs)
- small runnings costs for the UK team, such as resoruces for fundraising and travel to networking events etc.
