Save the Children

Save the Children is delighted with the special fundraising project to be carried out by Peter Uithol and Dirk Regter. It is wonderful to see how these two men are preparing for their journey with such enthusiasm and how they are going about raising money for the Save the Children funds with equal enthusiasm.

Save the Children fights for children’s rights. We deliver immediate and lasting improvements in the lives and future prospects of children worldwide. We consider it important to involve the children themselves when looking for solutions to their problems. We concentrate primarily on health care, education and protection from exploitation and abuse.

If you decide to sponsor this fantastic journey, you can pledge your kilometer sponsorship or donations through the
Save the Children
website. Your donation will be spent on projects in the areas along the route.
