Stepping Stones: Five Islands Challenge

Event date: 30 Jun 2018

This year Nyasha Gwatidzo, founder of Vana Trust, embarks on a 118 mile walk around the five largest Channel Islands to fundraise in support of the education of 50 schoolchildren at St David’s School, Nyandoro, Zimbabwe.

This will be the third annual fundraising hike undertaken by Nyasha. She will be joined by John Usher, previous hikes together include the length of the Thames and walking across central Zimbabwe.

The challenge, that will take them around the coastlines of Jersey, Alderney, Sark, Herm and Guernsey will start on 30th June 2018 and they aim to take 12 days.

Since it was created, Vana Trust has promoted and championed empowerment through education, thus enriching the lives of children and young adults in the UK and Zimbabwe.

The cost of educating a student for a year is £188.50 including school fees, uniform and books along with the support from Vana Trust staff to ensure they are being properly supported at the school.

Nyasha and John are hoping to be joined along the way by the Trust’s supporters and are encouraging people to help them raise at least £9,425.93 being the total cost for 50 schoolchildren to be educated for a year.
