Encompass, The Daniel Braden Reconciliation Trust

Encompass gives young people the skills needed to confront issues of conflict, stereotype and identity within their communities through non-formal education programmes. These young people come from Israel, Indonesia, the Palestinian Territories, the US and UK for our Journey of Understanding.

Story

I will be trekking up Mount Snowdon to raise money for the Encompass Trust. 

A few years ago I took part as a particpant on a programme close to the footill of Snowdon and I, along with 20 plus people from Indonesia, Israel, Palestine, the UK and USA were immersed net/ mobile free in a series of challenges to overcome our differences, see our similarities and in turn take that message back to our own communities to try and make a difference. 

This programme changed my life for the better and started me on my own journey of understanding and acceptance

Since then I have met and volunteered with many of the young people who have benefited from the work undertaken by Encompass and can vouch for the positive change it has made.

I am doing this challenge to  support the Braden family who channelled their terrible loss into something so positive, which in itself is admirable and deserving of support.

Please support me by sponsoring me as much as you can to reach my goal of £300
