Update time!It's been a few days since I let you know how I was tracking so I thought I'd give you an update.
- Prevent vulnerable people from being trafficked and exploited
- Remove people from exploitative situations
- Prosecute traffickers
- Provide legal support and aftercare for trafficked people and exploited workers
- Rehabilitate survivors and reintegrate them back into their chosen communities
Hope and freedomWow, we're at Alert Level 1! Isn't that exciting?
Supply and demandIn fifth form accounting we learnt about supply and demand, that if there is demand for something then the volume of that product is increased to meet the demand. (Just to let you in on a little secret, accounting is not my strong suit - I originally received 48% for School Cert accounting but after a recount I received 50%).
The half way pointThe Poverty Cycle runs from June 1 - 14 which means today is day 7 and the half way mark. So here's how I'm tracking...
Have a break?Yesterday was a bit crazy at our place. We had places to be and things to do so I didn't do any walking towards my 79km.
I need new shoesI need new shoes is something that has escaped the lips of most females at some stage during their life. And here I am, 23.6km in, thinking that I too need new shoes.
Nearly quarter of the way...I can't believe that I'm nearly quarter of the way through my challenge! I enjoy having something to work towards, the light at the end of the tunnel.
The pain is real!Day two saw another 5.2km taken off the 79km I'm aiming to walk.
Day One done and dustedI decided that if I was to walk 79km over 14 days I'd need to walk about 6km each day. To be honest I can't remember the last time I walked 6km in one go, maybe 10 years ago when I went tramping for my Gold DOE expedition.
We're fundraising for Tearfund
It breaks my heart when I read about women, children and men being forced to work against their will for someone else's gain. These people are someone's mother, sister, aunt. Someone's daughter, son, friend. Someone's husband, brother, uncle.
I'm standing in the gap and taking up the Tearfund Poverty Cycle challenge to help combat human trafficking and exploitation.
Please help by sponsoring me and give a hope and a future to those trapped by human trafficking and exploitation.
