Maria G. Mendes, who is helping us raise fund fo SIKAT by running in the Color Run UK event at Wembley on 11 June to give the chance of Calingag Philippines a chance in life.

A big Thank you to you Maria G. Mendes for choosing to fundraise for SIKAT. I am incredibly honoured and chuffed that you chose SIKAT from so many other worthwhile charities and causes.

We at SIKAT are fighting for the right of every child of Calingag, (a small village in the Philippines) to receive an education. So they too have access to the skills & life opportunities, that being educated provides.
IMAGINE not having access to a school, to a book or even a pen to write with…

Where would you be without education? I know where I’d be.
Because, I’ve been there, I was born in the Philippines, and went without education for two years while growing up and was deeply grateful to be given the opportunity by my elder brother to return to school again. I am now a proud university graduate I was fortunate though to have that help, but not everyone has that chance.

SIKAT is the only UK based charity supporting the underprivileged areas of the Calingag

Help us raise funds to help children and young people get educated so they too can - like so many children around the world - have access to opportunities through education, skill development, and leisure activities and the chance to pursue careers….Help us raise funds to give these children & young people a chance in life. Without our help, these children don’t even get to hold a book, never mind owning one!

Just two weeks to go! Join us at the Color fun run. I’ll be wearing my pink hat!

Please support the lovely Maria Mendes who is helping us raise funds for SIKAT by running in the COLOUR RUN event held at Wembley on 11th June.
