The fourth fabulous Valley Trek will be held on Saturday, May 5. Teams of two to six participants can walk or run an option of 50 kilometres, 35 kilometres or or enjoy a more leisurely day and choose the 14 kilometre option. Participants can get people to sponsor their efforts.
Education is a key to changing lives in Timor Leste, and this year’s Trek is aimed at enabling young people from remote parts of Remexio to get an education and to make a contribution to their communities and local and regional economies.
Having completed the Remexio Solar Lighting Project with the funds raised in the 2009, 2011 and 2013 treks, they now intend to expand their education program, including building a second student house in Dili and providing more scholarships for young people to stay at school and go on to further tertiary studies.
