See feel and understand your impact - who we support in Nepal
As part of our commitment to the United Nations Global Goals, over the past three years we've been supporting these two fantastic goals - we believe they are particularly pertinent to Nepal:
The IMS Foundation takes the biggest challenges facing Nepal & seeks out the most extraordinary grassroot organisations who are working to catalyse real change in the country.
Childreach Nepal: Children should be #TaughtNotTrafficked. This project uses sports as a tool for development and aims to provide not just technical skills, but support the holistic development of children through sports activities. The programme aims to reduce dropout rates in the schools, to prevent children from being trafficking, indulging in unsafe migration and any other form of child abuse children may face once they drop out of school. It also focuses on bringing equality among the community regardless of gender, race and economic background of the family
Burns Violence Survivors: With 56,000 of burns cases a year and only 1 hospital ward dedicated, this is a powerful project that goes right to the heart of Nepali culture. Not only tackling the care, but the prevention - a huge challenge when faced with the task of tackling domestic abuse and the use of acid in such attacks. Since starting the Nepal Impact Marathon we have funded 15 life-saving surgeries for burns victims, and with your support we can really ramp that up this year.
We take The Global Goals from being sometimes abstract concepts to being real, tangible and understandable on a micro-level.
Once you've signed up for the race - you'll set up your fundraising page. We ask our runners to raise a minimum amount of £1246.10 (73.3km x 17 Global Goals). The more we raise as a team, the more lasting our impact.
The Impact Marathon dream is to elevate running to be a major contributor to achieving the UN GLOBAL GOALS!
