Theo Runs for Eve Branson Foundation

Theo Oulton

My page:

Hi everybody!

I’m running the London Marathon – eeeekk!

I couldn’t be happier than to be raising money for the wonderful Eve Branson Foundation.

For over 10 years now the Eve Branson Foundation has been working to support the lives of the Berber community in the Atlas Mountains.

Eve's first project was in Tansghart, where she established a crafthouse to train young girls who had dropped out of school. There have been many projects since – including a woodwork and weaving training centre [Ayoub and Mouad, pictured, are two woodwork centre trainees], and a fantastic initiative providing pain-free dental care for children and young women. Throughout all of this the focus has been on empowering the individuals in the community. (An attitude I fear is creeping into my marathon training, with Eve taking on the role of coach – “Oh come on old boy, yes yes you can do it!”)

In 2017 they hope to include a women's healthcare tent, so any funds we are able to raise together will help them achieve this goal.  

All who have been touched by the Eve Branson Foundation love her to bits, and rightly so. You cannot go half an hour in Eve’s company without her speaking with caring devotion and pride about ‘her girls’, and you cannot walk through Morocco without people stopping her to thank her. A few years ago she was awarded the utmost honour of Officer of the Order of Ouissam Alaouite, for her tireless efforts for the Moroccan people. (Although that title Officer is one which again I fear might translate into her role as coach…!)

Now please lend me some of that energy Evey!!

Thanks everybody!
