Start Your Engines 2016

16 September 2015

We'll soon be starting up processing for our 2016 walk on Saturday May 7. We're once again walking for the beautiful Ugandan orphans who are cared for in the Village of Hope located in the township of Jinja (second largest city outside Kampala). Here in the office we're excited to see the walk coming together. We're aiming for a huge walk and setting our fundraising target at $120,000 so we encourage you all to get involved and make 2016 a huge year for the kids. This money will mean we can rescue many more kids from the slums of Uganda.

FYI - the weather for our Saturday walk in 2016 will be 22c, sunny with gentle breezes - it may be months away but we've already booked the day so all up looks like we will have a great day's walking :-)

The GtEM Team

Uganda and Village of Hope

6 February 2014

Go the Extra Mile representative Peter Jackel visited the Village of Hope durng the month of January with his son Harrison. Together they worked in the village on a number of building projects and took some time out to get to know the kids and to understand the work of HopeBuilders International.

It's important for us at GtEM to understand how the money being raised by you, is in fact being used on the ground.
