Ks for Katoke 2023

May 10, 2023 @ 12:00 am - June 30, 2023 @ 12:00 am

Each year the Katoke Trust lays down a challenge.

Would you take the journey to school alongside the Katoke-Lweru Secondary School students each day?

Over the past three years you have risen to that challenge and together we’ve travelled thousands of kilometres and raised around $300,000. These funds have helped to provide the vulnerable in Tanzania with education, assistance in farming and much needed medical care.

This year we are aiming to reach another ambitious goal!

100 Registered to run, walk or ride;

$100k Raised through generous donations; and

Thousands Reached with the precious gifts of education and health care.

Will you help us by taking up the Ks4K challenge this June?

How you will be supporting those in need: 

This year there are three key needs in the Katoke area which include:

    1. Building 2 further classrooms costing $40,000 each
    2. Sponsorship of 10 enrolled children who urgently require financial support to be able to continue their education
    3. Improve the nutritional quality of food for the students 

How to get involved:

Register before the end of May, then get active…

1.   RUN, RIDE, OR WALK – Set yourself a goal! Think about a distance or an amount of time that you can commit to each day for the month of June. Remember to set an achievable but challenging goal! Over the past two years we’ve had people walk for 20 days in June, run 200km over the month, or even cycle 200km in one day. You can set a goal that is as long or short as you like, but be creative, be courageous and take care.

2.   REACH OUT – Tell your friends and family that you are participating in Ks for Katoke and ask them to help. Help us to reach 100 people participating by asking them if they would join you in the challenge as a ‘running mate’ or even build a team of friends or family to participate and to raise funds together!!

3.   RAISE SUPPORT – This End of Financial Year we are boldly challenging ourselves to raise one hundred thousand dollars in order to continue our life changing work in Tanzania. Together we can reach this goal! So set a fundraising target (you can find some ideas below) and ask your networks to help you reach it!


How much should you raise?

While we told you to be wise in setting an achievable Run/Walk/Ride goal for Ks4K, when it comes to donations we encourage you to be BOLD! If you don’t know where to start, 1 3 2 0 is a simple yet valuable goal. It costs $1,320 to provide one student with accommodation, food, health care and education at KLSS each year. $1,320 can change a life. Could you raise the funds to support a child this year? Or if you’re prepared to think big, could you raise the funds to support a child for the entirety of their secondary education? We believe you can.

What you need to do now: 

Head to www.ksforkatoke.com.au  (or hit button below) to REGISTER, set your goals and get active! Then, REACH OUT to your friends and family, encourage at least one person to join you in this challenge, and encourage the rest to support you as you RAISE funds for the Katoke Trust.

Join us, as together, we help transform lives.
