CALLING all runners, aspiring runners, walkers, and fitness buffs! We need you! Africa Development Promise (ADP) is taking part in the Colfax Marathon on May 19-20, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. We are running and fundraising to support rural women farmers in Rwanda and Uganda. Rural women work incredibly hard and long hours because besides subsistence farming they are responsible for preparing food, collecting fuelwood and water, taking care of their children thus limiting their opportunity for productive endeavors. ADP believes that rural women can be economically self-sufficient, and flourish if given the right tools. Our programs move women farmers from growing food for subsistence to food for business. Our goal is to raise $5,000 on Crowdrise. This is a fun way to help us reach our goal. Please select Africa Development Promise when you register to run or walk. Then create a fundraising page on our Crowdrise Campaign and invite your friends to donate to your effort. All proceeds go to support business development training.
