Help us make a difference
‘With every £7 you raise, you will pay for a child’s education for a whole year.’ Our aim is to encourage and support youngsters in the UK to engage in sponsored physical activity, while making a difference to the lives of others who are less fortunate.
Get fit for a purpose
Get fit for a purpose is designed to encourage people in the UK to get involved in fitness and make an impact to the lives of others who are less fortunate.
Schools of Hope
Our Schools of Hope operate after school hours, giving children educational support by providing desks, chairs and lighting in a safe and conducive learning environment.
It is so easy to get involved! Simply set aside a time when you can organise your school pupils in a supervised, sponsored activity. There are many ways to fund-raise! Examples are below or be creative and come up with your own unique way to make a difference
A sponsored cycle ride or having a whole bunch of pupils cycling together could be a great way to raise money. Have fun whilst making a difference
A dance-a-thon would be a perfect example of our "Get fit for a purpose" attitiude as this fun activity encourages fitness but also helping people who are living in the slums

In the informal slum settlements of Nairobi, children are born into unsanitary conditions with little stimulation or nurturing in their first years of life. By sponsoring one of these children, you can make sure that they have a brighter future ahead of them.
