Walk for Education
Baan Dada have held Walk for Education events each year in October since 2010!
Our most recent Walk for Education event began on 14th October, 2013! Participants walked from Sangkhlaburi to Kanchanaburi (218km) to raise money to pay school fees for 50 children studying in elementary and high school.
There were 17 children participating, ranging in ages 10 – 15 years, along with Dada Prashanta. There were also five volunteers, along with 12 school students and two teachers from Singapore who completed the walk. We stayed in schools along the way and cooked our own food. We completed the walk in four days in relay style and spent two nights camping at Erawan waterfall having some fun.
We were able to raise US$7,500 after on road expenses!!!
Solo Cycling for Education
Dada Ramakrishna has done Solo Cycling for Education each year in September since 2012!
His recent Solo Cycling for Education began on 23rd September, 2013 and he cycled from Kanchanaburi (Thailand) to Singapore (yes, Singapore!) in hot and rainy weather. The journey took him eleven days and he covered 2,027km.
This event raised money to cover university fees for eleven children for the second semester school that opened in October 2013. By raising this money, Baan Dada can ensure that these children can continue their studies which are so important to their future.
Funds are still needed for this event. To donate please visit baandada.org/donate-to-our-home or contact email@example.com.
