LET’S HAVE FUN, RUN AND FUNDRAISE
The time to act is NOW! Let’s unite and make a difference we can all be proud of.
We’re really excited to launch our first ever Run4Education event and we hope you’ll be part of it.
All 11th graders, we need you! Let’s launch the first RUN4EDUCATION together as a KICK-OFF for equality and education for all!
The first RUN4EDUCATION is initiated and led by a young pioneer- team with the support of ConCultures, Germany. We are a student body across all five schools in Berlin, passionate and dedicated to help create a better world.
This year we are supporting United World Schools’ programme to prevent school dropout following the pandemic and girl’s education in Nepal. Nepal is one of the poorest countries of the world. In areas where United World Schools work, communities struggle to survive through farming and are affected disproportionately by climate change. Education is the key to unlocking a better future for these communities.
All funds will go 100% via ConCultures Germany to United World Schools, an education NGO creating inclusive quality education for communities without schools following the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Together, we are transforming the lives of children from the most remote and marginalized areas of the world, where schools have never been before.
Because education is the key to tackling all challenges our planet is facing, from climate protection and poverty to world peace, according to the UN. We decided to focus on the topic of education as we believe it is unjust that education is distributed unevenly across the world. The right to education is one that should be accessible to everyone, not only those, like us, that were privileged enough to be born in developed areas.
Due to prolonged school closures over the Covid-19 pandemic, UNESCO warns that more than 11 million girls are at risk of dropping out and may never return to school. And did you know that investing in girl’s education is one of the most effective solutions in breaking the cycle of poverty? If the mother of a child is educated, that child is 50% more likely to be sent to school.
Run 4 Education Voices:
“I’m really excited to be running this event. I believe it is vital that our students are empowered to take action to help other children in Nepal get an education. The positive impact to young people here in Germany as well as in Nepal is a win-win situation.” Amelie von Borries, ConCultures (CEO).
