Riccardo is going to run the Venice Marathon (23rd October)
Make your move ! You just need to do few clicks to support Riccardo, and enable Esther, an orphan girl to attend her second year of secondary education!
Esther is a very promising and bright child.
She deserves an education! All children deserve one !
See the link below :
As you can recall, in 2014 Riccardo ran the Dublin Marathon to raise funds for paying the annual salary of a Primary School Teacher (in 2014).
Last year he ran the Dublin Half Marathon to help Esther, to cover the costs of her first year in secondary school.
Contained within this video is a message to Riccardo from Nancy, Gladys and Margaret. 3 girls in the orphanage we support.
Esther a 15 years old orphan is going to be able to pursue her dream.
As a first step Riccardo’s action enables her to have a secondary education.
Esther is a very promising girl, extremely bright with an altruist touch.
See pictures of Esther and Riccardo talking about our organisation, within Dell during an annual meeting.
Esther wants to become a surgeon :
"I would like you to sponsor me from form one to University. The reason as to why I want to reach from that level to the last one, is that I want to attain my goals. I would like to be a surgeon when I grow up. And for that, I will be able to help my siblings, other orphans and you too"
Esther arrived at Upendo in 2006 when she was five years old. She did not know english when she arrived be very quickly became fluent. If you met her, you would immediately believe that she can accomplish her goals of not only going to university, but obtaining an advanced degree while also caring for orphans that have had a childhood like hers.
