Message from Anthony Marino, Sambat Trust - Marathon
Why am I running a marathon?
As you may know, Sambat Trust started after I treated my Mum,for Xmas 2006, to a trip home to the Philippines.
One story Mum told me from her holiday was of Johaini, a young girl in Mums village who was not in school and learning because her family couldn't afford it.
I decided to do something.
I asked family and friends for their support.
That first year, 36 children were able to go to school. Johaini was one of them.
Thanks to you, Sambat Trust is growing: we are establishing school libraries, granting scholarships and training teachers.
Over 2,000 children now have the opportunity to read children's books in school!
But we are just beginning. Every child has the right to a quality education.
With your help, Sambat Trust can continue to provide the resources required for children to thrive in school.
puts 10 local Filipiniana childrens books in a library
£20/USD32 buys a year of school supplies for 5 children
£50/USD80 provides school uniforms for 12 children
£100/USD160 places 70 Scholastic books on a library shelf
So why have I sponsored myself?
I can only ask you to do something if I am also willing to do it :)
Love, thanks and salamat po!
