My story

[p] Hi Everyone![/p][p] [/p][p]On Sunday 22nd April I will be running the London Marathon for Jesuit Missions who for over 50 Years they have supported vulnerable communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.[/p][p] [/p][p]Over the past 10 months, I have made significant changes to my lifestyle pushing both my mental and physical limits to the max. This is probably the toughest challenge I will ever undertake. Any support is appreciated! If your around on the day please drop me a line – Sweaty Finishing Hugs for free![/p][p] [/p][p]Money raised will go towards two Jesuit Missions projects abroad;[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Helping South Sudanese refugees in Uganda[/b][/p][p]Uganda hosts more refugees and asylum seekers than any other African nation, and there are 1.3 million refugees in Uganda, 82% of whom are women or girls. The majority have fled the catastrophic situation in South Sudan, followed by those escaping the Democratic Republic of Congo. With the situation in these countries unlikely to change soon, our[/p][p]work in Uganda will empower and integrate refugees and asylum seekers. We will increase access to education from pre-school and primary to secondary school and provide English language support. Additionally, we will work with the host communities to ensure peaceful co-existence and cooperation.[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Supporting Vulnerable Women in India[/b][/p][p]In India we are working with women who are vulnerable to exploitation and trafficking. Near the Nepalese border we have reunited women who have been trafficked to the nearby cities with their families. This year we want to do more and provide even more women with training and new skills. We have also increased awareness of the dangers of exploitation by groups promising work in the cities. We have seen women taking on leadership roles in their villages and having increased participation in local decision and policy making. Your efforts this year will help more women have access to life-changing skills programmes.[/p][p] [/p][p]Thank you[/p][p] [/p][p]Rupert[/p]
