VISIT YOUR SPONSOR CHILD
If you sponsor a child in Rwanda, you'll get the opportunity to meet them! Seeing with your own eyes the incredible difference your sponsorship is making.
FUNDRAISING WITH A DIFFERENCE
Knowing the incredible impact one-to-one sponsorship has on children in poverty, we ask that you aim to find sponsors for 10 children. For every new sponsored child, your fundraising target will be reduced by £1,000. Your target starts at £10,000. That way, if you find sponsors for 10 children you've achieved your goal. Similarly, you could find 8 sponsors and £2,000 in donations and you've also reached the target! We have years of experience in fundraising so we'll give you plenty of advice and tips
EACH MUSKATHLON IS RUN IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR FRIENDS AT 4MUK.
