Virtual Mission sponsored by Infosys

In this unprecedented time of social distance, we are launching a two week virtual mission to transform and even save the lives of children growing up in the world’s toughest places. Working together to raise vital funds to ensure no one is left behind.

Help us make remote learning possible for some of the world's most marginalised children. Working as teams we will attempt to travel a distance by running, walking, cycling, skipping, press-upping or any other means of exercise inside or out, with every step you make counting towards our overall goal. The mission would run 10th-24th September. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in the Big Ride for Africa, wherever you are, and for us to work together whilst being apart. Have fun whilst exercising and transform the lives of children growing up in the world’s toughest places – a truly global mission.

The Cause

At Street Child we believe every child deserves the chance to go to school and learn. We believe that achieving universal basic education is the single greatest step that can be taken towards the elimination of global poverty. Currently, 125 million school-aged children are out of education worldwide. Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. The Big Ride for Africa and the Virtual Big Ride are pivotal in how we raise funds to change this. Small amounts per person add up to thousands of children helped. So set up your teams, get on your trainers and let’s get going, register your interest below!
