A team from Marchmont, an Investment Management company, have taken on the tough but incredible challenge of travelling from Fort Augustus to Inverness Castle by bike, canoe and finishing with a run, covering approximately 56km collectively. They have taken on this challenge to support our Stand by Me kids in Ethiopia and give them a chance at a brighter future.
Christmas is the perfect time to show your sponsor child you are thinking of them by sending a monetary gift.
Our kids are overjoyed to be able to pick their own gifts from a local shop. They can choose anything from clothes, toys or even a new bag for school. These gifts ensure our children can receive something they want or need, while also benefitting the local economy!
On a recent sunny Saturday, teams from local companies, along with some Stand by Me staff and volunteers, had an exciting day on Lake Windermere competing in a dragon boat race, with all proceeds going toward our children in Kenya.
Kasahun and Abraham have graduated from two of Ethiopia's top universities!
Our dream for every Stand by Me’s child is that they can utilise our support to rise above their circumstance and create a better future for themselves and their family, breaking the cycle of poverty.
Stand by... almost there...
