"I was raped in 2005 while I already had two children. Four men raped me. When they came to my house, they took my husband outside and tied him to a banana tree and then they raped me." Alliance Ntakwinja, DRC
Alliance enrolled in the Women for Women programme and trained in soap making. She spoke about the rape for the first time to her life skills trainer.
Fundraising is an important part of My Step, Her Stride and we ask that each participant aims to raise £300. The funds you raise will benefit the women who are rebuilding their communities after war and conflict in the eight countries where we work through our year-long holistic training programme.
Does £300 seem like an intimidating amount? We are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure that you raise as much as possible to support women like Alliance. Previous runners have held bake sales and film screenings to boost their target, with some achieving over £1,000! All participants who reach their target of £300 will receive a free t-shirt too.
