Fr John is back training for a sponsored run which is planned to take place later in the year. John is hoping to raise money for Tariro UK.
Tariro UK is a charity that funds projects for young people in need in Zimbabwe; helping them to learn, to develop and to grow. The projects funded support young people as their parents would, until they are independent, confident, and effecting positive change for themselves and others.
Aid organisations in Zimbabwe have typically tended to focus on supporting younger children, who, when they reach their teenage years, are left to fend for themselves in a country with unemployment rates estimated at 80-90%.
Rather than attempt large-scale feeding programmes, or the support of many children for a limited amount of time, Tariro UK raise money to fund projects supporting individual children in family-like environments, fulfilling their different needs through school and into adulthood, ensuring all young people are cared for until they can care for themselves.
