In Her Shoes Challenge
Across rural Uganda, girls like Nawalat have to travel more than 10km each way, to and from school. During lockdown, supporters from all around the UK are challenging themselves to imagine what it is like to walk in a young girl like Nawalat’s shoes.
Nawalat isn’t able to travel to school at the moment, due to Uganda’s national lockdown – but when she returns, bicycles will continue to make a difference, helping her to break the cycle of poverty.
During this period of lockdown, bicycles have continued to help those most in need access vital services. With public transport banned, bicycles have been an essential way for communities in rural Uganda to visit markets, health centres, and other services. Support for the Emergency Coronavirus Appeal has helped make regularly sanitised bicycles available for these communities – enabling expectant mothers reach health centres to safely deliver their babies, and families to continue to travel to market, to buy and sell vital food supplies. After lockdown is over, bicycles will continue to change the lives of young girls like Nawalat.
Will you do something inspiring? Walk 10km, raise funds for All We Can’s Emergency Coronavirus Appeal and save lives globally.
