Ks for Katoke

June 1 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm

Are you up for the challenge?
The majority of Katoke-Lweru Secondary School (KLSS) students live on-site but some travel each day from local villages. In June we challenge you to take the journey to school alongside the KLSS students and help us RAISE $50,000 so that we can continue to provide children with the priceless gift of education.

How to get involved
Register before the end of May…. then RUN, REACH & RAISE in June.

1. RUN
RUN, walk or get active in June
Set yourself a distance (km) or time target (mins).
How far are you going to run or walk in kilometers each day? You might choose to set a time target instead  – be active for 30 minutes a day.

2. REACH
REACH out to your friends and family, tell them about Katoke, your fundraising goal and ask them to sponsor you.

3. RAISE
This financial year, we are looking for your help to reach our goal to RAISE fifty thousand dollars in order to continue to expand and maintain our current support for education in Tanzania. Already the Katoke Trust.

Join our (virtual) K’s for Katoke Launch Party on the 19th of May. Sign up here.

How you’ll be supporting kids in need
The money you raise will help the Katoke Trust continue its life changing work in Tanzania.

Some of our immediate needs include

STUDENT SPONSORSHIP – The Trust established the Katoke-Lweru Secondary School to meet the great need for secondary education in Tanzania. Through your ongoing support we have educated over a thousand students in the last 11 years. But there are still many children who aren’t able to attend KLSS  due to their family and financial circumstances. Would you help us raise funds in order to sponsor these students?

REMOTE LEARNING – The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world in many different ways. Here in Australia it’s meant that most school students have been forced to study from home, this is also the case in Tanzania. However, KLSS students do not have their own school supplies, textbooks, stationery or even computers. Would you help us raise funds in order to equip teachers to support students and provide crucial supplies for these children?

HEALTH LITERACY – A vital component of the Katoke Trust’s ongoing fight against poverty has been our malaria-prevention education program which has seen malaria reduced in local villages from over 60% of people infected per annum to about 10%. The Katoke Trust has been facilitating health education and equipping local villages with personal hygiene products in order to help combat COVID-19 in Tanzania, where hospitals and healthcare are not readily available to all. Would you help us raise funds to support our ongoing malaria-prevention programs, and provide health-care workers and local villagers with the means to combat COVID-19?.
