Deal Half Marathon

Why we need your help

Congratulations on completing the Deal Half Marathon!

COCO (Comrades of Children Overseas) is an international children’s charity, based in Newcastle upon Tyne. COCO works with rural communities in East Africa to provide children with access to the education that is essential for a good start in life.

COCO was founded by Steve Cram CBE and British Army Major Jim Panton in 2000. Since then, the charity has raised over £4 million to fund small, sustainable, community led initiatives. COCO and its partners have now undertaken 50 transformational programmes in 16 countries, positively impacting the lives of over 200,000 people. 

COCO is currently operating in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, in East Africa. Graduates from one partner school, Hoja Secondary in Tanzania, have achieved the best results in their region for five consecutive years and the school is now able to cover its own running costs.

COCO is working with 13 other communities to replicate this success. In addition, to enable parents to cover the cost of their children’s education, COCO has distributed 6,000 small loans and reached 13 communities with sustainable agriculture training, helping farmers to increase their annual income by an average of 284%. 

Any donation you make will be greatly appreciated.
