26 miles. 36 degree heat. One incredible charity. Please help support countless people in one of the world's poorest countries: Malawi.

This will be my first marathon and I will be running it in Muscat, Oman where average day-time temperatures, in October, hover around 36 degrees. I hope this challenge will encourage others to give generously and support the outstanding work done by African Vision Malawi.

The charity takes training, education and healthcare directly to where it is needed most, implementing sustainable practices and teaching self-sufficiency to empower communities so that they can thrive and be independent.

Only 40% of primary aged children attend school

The pupil to teacher ratio in Malawi is 62/1

Only 25% get a place in secondary school

Among many other projects, African Vision Malawi have set up 9 Community Based Childcare Centres for children under 5, they support 26 Primary Schools and typically sponsor around 40 teenagers to go to Secondary School and at least 20 students to attend university and further education. They have also set up a self-sustaining training village, built on a 17-acre site. The objective here is to support a move away from hand-outs and to train thousands of local people out of poverty.

These are just a few of the projects run by African Vision Malawi and your support in helping them continue and expand is vitally important.

Please donate generously to this incredible cause and know that your money will help improve the futures of today's Malawian children and young people.
