Over the last 25 days, I run 50 miles (80km) in order to insert more commitment and organization in my daily life. Also, it is a way to show that success comes one step at a time and it takes time to reach our objectives. Another part of my challenge was to raise money through the distance I will run, with donations equal or less than 1$ per mile/km that I have run, to support a moroccan NGO (AMDEL- Sale) that works on the local development and the empowerment of kids and youth from vulnerable and less fortunate environments.
AMDEL organizes various social activities for them. They created a press club for the kids of the association, and work on many activities related to environment and sustainability. They often invite students from the Netherlands to support their actvities and offer to these youngs kids a diverse experience. They helped them to run a local radio station and trained them to run their own journal and interviews.
The objective is to raise a minimum of 500$ to support the purchase of material for their press club including camera’s, Microphones, etc. Additionally, it will assit in the maintenance and renovation of their radio station.
This is a very meaningful intiative for me and it will be the best gift for my 25th birthday. Having the opportunity to study abroad is only coherant if you are able to give back and support your fellow citizens in having similar opportunities as you have had growing up. Looking greatly for your support to this initiative.
