This year, I am immensely proud to be running the Great North Run on 11 September for the Deaf Reach program - an initiative of Family Educational Services Foundation (FESF), a non-profit organisation focused on education in Pakistan.
Less than 2% of 1.25million deaf children in Pakistan have access to educational services, severely impeding their opportunities to grow, to learn, to make something of themselves. Deaf Reach has set up five schools and training centres across Pakistan to provide education and training skills specifically to deaf children and youth. The program also provides training and support for the families of deaf children, establishing a much-needed support structure and network for those most disadvantaged; and above all, enabling deaf children to communicate with their parents.
Education is fast becoming a recurring theme for my fundraising challenges, and I feel privileged to be in a position where I can support organisations that represent issues close to my heart. Any donation, however big or small, goes a long, long way - especially when it comes to education.
Please help me to support this wonderful program in providing opportunities to learn new skills and knowledge to those who would otherwise miss out!
