I am running the virtual London Marathon to raise money for the charity African Vision Malawi. They work with communities around the capital Lilongwe and empower them to become self sufficient and independent. They focus on 4 key areas: Self sufficiency, health, education and sanitation whilst paying close attention to the environment and championing ecological building, reforestation and permaculture. One of the most recent projects is Sam's village, a self sustaining training village with solar power and permaculture gardens that supports women, orphans and those with disabilities. The objective is to give these individuals a secure and environmentally friendly home where they can learn new skills.
I chose to run for Africa Vision Malawi because I was lucky enough to spend 3 weeks in the beautiful country in 2016. I travelled to Blantyre and educated children in schools, helped to build new classrooms and fixed water supplies. This gave me a first hand experience of the amazing work that charities do in Malawi as well as the need for such support.
Anything that you can donate towards this amazing cause is greatly appreciated,
