On 24 September 2016 we will be hiking 3, 5, 8, 14 & 20 miles around the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside to raise money for Oxfam.  This year we will be supporting the “Weather proofing” project in Honduras where farming families on the frontline of climate change are helped to feed themselves despite more frequent droughts and floods.

“This project works with both women and men on livelihoods, natural resource management, and gender training to make sure that farming families have enough to eat, now and in the future”
Hector Ortega, Oxfam Programme Manager.

Activities:
- Support communities to plan for extreme weather and manage natural resources sustainably
- Strengthen household livelihoods and reduce the risk of food shortages
- Boost co-operation between communities, the government, and civil society organisations on climate change policy, and push for increased support.
