Ks for Katoke

It is that time of year again for our supporters to get out and move (or encourage someone via you donation) to support the Katoke Trust.

The rules are simple

  • Go to ksforkatoke.com.au register or donate (or both).
  • Encourage sponsors to help encourage you
  • In June log you km (walk, run, ride, swim, hop, you do you)
  • Bragging right to the to the one who raises the most money and for the biggest effort.

Why are we raising funds. The answer is simple, the villagers of Katoke are in a poverty trap. So if you every though “I cannot make a difference”, then this will change your mind. The Katoke Trust with your help really does make a difference. Using the skills of volunteers and the money from generous donors, we have already changed the lives of so many and continuing to do so. The poverty cycle can be broken with health, education and love. The Katoke Trust appreciates every donation, large and small.
