The Charities

 

This trip, above all else, is a charity fund raising event. We've set the bar at £1000 and if we clear this, any additional money will be given to Cancer Research UK. We really do believe that these are very worthy organisations for this trip. We hope you do too.

 

Save the Children UK

Save the Children UK is a leading international organisation helping children in need around the world.  

Save the Children organisations participate in the International Save the Children Alliance -- a global network of nonprofit organisations working in over 120 countries around the world. Founded in Geneva in 1977, the Alliance relocated to London in 1997.

Most recently, members of the Alliance launched Rewrite the Future, a programme to bring quality education to 8 million children living in countries affected by conflict. Together, they are working in 16 countries to try to ensure access to education for 3 million children and improve the quality of education for 5 million more, to make schools safe and protect children from exploitation and abuse, and to influence national governments and international institutions to make quality education a priority for conflict-affected children.

SAVE THE CHILDREN IN MONGOLIA

 

Save the Children UK began working in Mongolia in 1994. In response to the urgent needs of many vulnerable children, and their programmes expanded rapidly – both in terms of scope and geographical area. As a result, the have built up extensive knowledge and expertise, and quickly became recognised as a key agency for children.

Promoting children’s rights is a guiding principle for everything they do. Their work is currently mainly focused on education and child protection and is carried out in eight provinces and in Ulaanbaatar, the capital. They have achieved some notable successes on behalf of children across Mongolia. In 2005, they received an award from Mongolia’s Human Rights Commission because of their work. They were also invited to join a council of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that consults with parliament on public policy issues.

Although the main focus of our work is on long-term development, they launched an emergency programme in 2000 to bring food and other aid to families in crisis during the harsh winter. Maintaining their emergency preparedness is now an ongoing part of our work in Mongolia.
