Business Chicks 2018 Senegal Journey

My Senegal Journey

I am Fundraising for the Hunger Project Australia. Myself and 19 other remarkable female leaders have embarked on a journey that will take us to Senegal to support the work of The Hunger Project as part of the 2018 Business Chicks Senegal Journey. Your tax-deductible donation will go a long way to empower women to enact change within their own communities to create a brighter future without hunger or poverty. I thank you for your support.
Some of you might recall my trip to Bangladesh in 2012. Five years later after having done the Hike4Hunger (Cape to Cape track - 135Km in WA) in 2013, and the Sunshine Coast Marathon (42.2K run) to raise funds for The Hunger Project, I have chosen to embark on this Senegal journey. It will be my first time ever in Africa, experiencing first hand the work of The Hunger Project (where it was initiated). Some of my fundraising activities included finishing my first ever triathlon (enticer distance) on November 19th which meant a big challenge for me as I just learned how to swim this year and I am not a bike rider (just got a bike). Of course, this does not compare with the adversities faced by the people on the local villages in Africa and my motivation to take on this challenge is to somehow and humbly honour the resilience, commitment and courage of the people from the villages.

In the last five years I have learnt more, not only first hand, but also through other leaders about the work of The Hunger Project and I have found it makes a difference to the people who live in extremely adverse conditions and are commited to become self-reliant and transform their lives. I am requesting your contribution to my fundraising efforts. It means a lot to me and more importantly it will make a big difference to the local people in Senegal. Please make your contribution now (before December 15th). Every dollar counts. 
If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact me directly.
With much love and gratitude
Yarianni
