I got great support last year when I put my new hip to the test on the Maamturks Challenge so this year I’m going to put it to the test again on the Blackstairs Mountain Challenge. It is a tough challenge 31 Km. and 1,700 meters climbing. I’m hoping to raise funds again for Africa Directs’ work. There was a fantastic response last year with over €2.000 raised in sponsorship so I’m hoping for your support again this year. Many thanks for your donations.
This year Africa Direct plans to fund a skills training centre in Mukuru Slum in Nairobi for teenagers who have missed out on secondary school. Courses are run in catering, and dressmaking. Below see Africa Direct volunteers get a makeover on a visit to the Hair & Beauty Class.
