Many children around the world have little or no books at their schools, or at home. This makes learning difficult, minimizing education outcomes and life potential. We want to make a difference!
We long for the children at our Justice Rising schools in the Congo, who are some of the worlds’ most vulnerable, to have books to read. While we already help to fund the building and running of the schools, we need your help to obtain books in French and to send to them in the Congo.
My name is Gill Drakeford-Lewis, Community Outreach Coordinator for HOPE. I have started a 42 day fitness challenge, and invite you to sponsor me to help raise funds to get books to these wonderful children. I will work out at least 3 times per week, stick to a strict food regime, and promise to lose 20 lbs, and/or 5% body fat!

Let's do something amazing together and get these children some books!
