Our aim, as always, is to help families get active together. As an extra bonus, we will be raising money in support of the Jane Goodall Institute Switzerland and Theodora Clowns.
2. Jane Goodall Institute Switzerland
The Jane Goodall Institute Switzerland and its Roots & Shoots (R&S) programme does wonderful work for communities and conservation of great apes in Uganda. Funding from this race will go towards training in the construction and use of energy-saving stoves in poor areas. It’s women who are trained, and each woman trained is expected to then train at least two other women.
- SFr 1,000 helps R&S train 80 women resulting in 240 energy-saving stoves constructed
- SFr 2,000 helps R&S train 160 women resulting in 480 energy-saving stoves constructed
- SFr 5,000 helps R&S train 400 women resulting in 1,200 energy-saving stoves constructed
