My Message

On February 26th, 2012, I lead a team of 25 Cuso and VSO volunteers based in Tanzania and Kenya in running the Kilimanjaro Marathon and the shorter races.  We used this to raise funds to support our education programmes in Tanzania. I personally raised over $5000 and as a team we got over $11,000 in donations.   Then on May 25th I led another team of Cuso and VSO volunteers from Tanzania and Rwanda in running the International Peace Marathon in Kigali.  We gain raised several thousands of dollars, this time targeted towards empowerment of women in East Africa, through the awarding of small grants.

Cuso International is a non-profit international development organization working to improve the lives of people living with poverty and inequality around the globe through volunteers, partners and compassionate donors. Each year Cuso International mobilizes hundreds of professionals who volunteer side-by-side with local partners to create positive and lasting change. Lasting change requires not only a financial investment, but also a human investment. That’s why Cuso International shares skills, and improves lives.
