THANK YOU to everyone that took part in The Flight Centre RestlessTriathlon. Here's how the money you raised is helping young people around the world.
This confident young school girl is Samantha, a member of a project in Zimbabwe which empowers orphans and vulnerable young people to get the education they deserve.
Samantha was brought up by her aunt, after her father sadly passed away leaving her mother with no income and unable to look after her. Samantha admires her aunt for teaching her the importance of working hard and getting an education. But as money was tight, school fees were a luxury they couldn’t always afford, so Samantha often missed out on classes in primary school.
Restless Development was working in Samantha’s district, training young people in essential business and entrepreneurial skills. Samantha joined a layer hens project, facilitated by our young volunteers living in her community.
“Even though we had little money it was possible to return to school because of knowing Restless Development. I help feeding the chickens, taking care of them and looking after them. Then we sell the eggs at the market.”
The money that Samantha’s group makes is essential to helping them to stay in school, paying for fees, stationery and uniforms.
Restless Development is committed to ensuring more young people like Samantha have the power to control their health, education and futures. This wouldn't be possible without events like The Flight Centre RestlessTriathlon or generous supporters like YOU.
