I am cycling from Wales to London in July ! This mammoth cycle will be in aid of Guria, a grassroots charity based in India (Uttar Pradesh), Guria are tirelessly fighting against human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children, sadly a huge and growing problem.
Guria provide education and awareness and empower women and girls and whole villages to stand up for their rights and not fall victim to traffickers. Guria have rescued more than 2,000 people from slavery, including children from sexual exploitation in brothels. They are one of very few to do the dangerous work of taking human traffickers to court and they have even secured convictions in a region where historically traffickers and those who exploit children are used to facing no consequences. .. These are some of the reasons I am cycling to support Guria!
Guria are a small frontline charity and have little time for fundraising so your support is needed. Any donations will go a long way in Uttar Pradesh, which is one of the poorest parts of India and the world.
Thank-you so much!
