We are thrilled to announce the return of our signature event, the Fafali Walk & Run for Education, as part of our 72-Hour Campaign in collaboration with the German National Association for Catholic Youth (BDKJ).

The 72-Hour Campaign is a collaborative effort led by Lilly Bess, a German volunteer who coordinates the Fit4Fun and Literacy projects in our organization. This initiative aims to make a positive impact by supporting underprivileged children in accessing education by providing them with essential school supplies. Held previously with great success, this year’s event promises to be even more impactful as we continue our mission to provide essential school supplies to those in need.

Background
The Fafali Walk & Run for Education is our signature event used to usher in our school supplies fundraiser for the year. The 2nd edition Fafali Walk & Run for Education is a collaborative project with the 72-Hour Campaign. This partnership was forged with the aim of championing a social cause: raising books and school supplies for underprivileged children. With many parents unable to provide their children with necessary stationary, Fafali’s intervention is crucial in ensuring these children have the tools they need to succeed in school.

Event Highlights
This year’s event features a 5km race coupled with a Jama Session, bringing together members of the community, social clubs, churches, schools, organizational partners, volunteers and other key stakeholders in support of education. Community Partner Schools including Jerremite International School, Unity Baptist School, St. James Wisdom Preparatory School, and Victoria Solid Foundation School, along with members of the community, and teachers will participate in the race.

Prizes
There are exciting prizes up for grabs, including sports wear and medals for student participants from partner schools, jerseys and other sporting attires for community members participating in the race, and random raffles for attendees to win additional prizes.

How to Participate
Participation is simple: bring along just one exercise book or more to donate, and you’ll have the chance to win an amazing jersey generously donated by KitAid, UK. Whether you’re young or old, this event is perfect for families, friends, and community members alike. Join us for a morning of exercise and support for the education of underserved children.
