Team story

[p]I’m Solomon Daniel. [/p][p]In July 2019 I'm taking part in the unique Nomadic Knights 14 day [i]Back To The Future II[/i] (Roof Of India) motorcycle adventure in the mighty Himalayas. This ride will take on some of the world's highest roads and their hair-raising cliffhangers, high altitude deserts and lunar-like valleys. [/p][p]I'm using this extreme challenge to raise vital funds to help more children in the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve to attend school and gain an education and a path to the future. [/p][p]I'm the man from the jungle, in the mountains... on a motorcycle. And I'm on a mission and I need your help.[/p][p]A bit of background[/p][p]As many of you already know I am the founder of the South-India based charity [i]Grace Charitable Trust[/i]. Every year we support the education of hundreds of young children in the tribal areas of the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve in Tamil Nadu.[/p][p]It is so clear that education is a vital need of children everywhere! Education not only transforms children's lives, it reduces poverty, combats diseases, promotes gender equality, reduces child marriage and promotes peace.[/p][p]In the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, where I'm from, children face a dangerous journey to school through the tiger and elephant reserve. The distances are long and many of the families cannot afford to pay for their children’s education. This means that many children are missing school or aren't able to enrol at all. This is where [i]Grace Charitable Trust[/i] steps in.[/p][p]We help children get to school every day by running a fleet of school buses in the local villages. We provide children with uniforms, books and shoes and support them with their school fees. We also run after school tuition centres where children can get further support with their homework and spend time with their peers.[/p][p]We provide everything a child in the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve needs to attend school: [/p][p]School fees[/p][p]School uniform and bag[/p][p]Text and exercise books and other stationery [/p][p]Regular health check[/p][p]An opportunity to attend one of our tuition centres after school to receive additional support with learning by a village teacher[/p][p]A contribution towards the salary of a village teacher[/p][p]A place on the school bus[/p][p]A contribution towards the maintenance of the bus, the diesel and the driver's salary[/p][p]Please help if you can! Every donation, big or small, is gratefully received and will make a huge difference for the children. By reaching my fundraising target we will be able to provide more children with access to education. [/p][p]A gift that changes lives![/p][p]Thank you so much![/p][p]Solomon[/p][p]NB: Donations will be sent to [i]Grace Charitable Trust [/i]through our long standing UK Charity Partner, [i]Adventure Ashram[/i].
