Use sports for community transformation

Joshua Cheptegei Development Foundation has played a crucial role in pushing for the realization of the basic human rights for women, men, boys and girls since 2016 as a community-based organization through organizing Joshua Cheptegei Development Foundation Annual races and we use these platforms to engage parents to keep children in school, distribute scholastic materials, engage men and women not to fight or subject each other to sexual gender based violence.

Our annual run efforts have yielded to the rights of women and girls being respected/not subjected to FGM/C or early marriages, encouraging women participation in decision making, campaign to eradicate bad social norms such as female genital mutilation/cutting, women rights, children’s rights and economic empowerment of women, mobilizing women to deliver safely in health facilities. However, our biggest challenge is the limited resource envelope that is dependent on the good will support of the foundation directors especially Champion Joshua Cheptegei, calling for your support in intensifying fundraising efforts to meet the needs of communities.
