In April I'll be cycling the length of Cyprus with friends from the UK and greek and turkish Cypriots who live in Cyprus. For me it will probably be the last time I will do this, as it's a strenuous cycle along the Northern coast, over two mountain ranges and across the border that separates North and South. It's the best adventure ever, but also a celebration of a country and its people that could and should be living without ethnic divides.
Action Village India is a charity that I have alot of time for because it works with Indian partners who know how to help people help themselves and is into long-term investment in their futures. The backbone of their work is empowering women, and that is what I appreciate above all else. Money I raise will go towards the education of girls living in villages in the poorest states, agricultural projects and supporting disabled people, including children, in obtaining their rights and their ecomonic security.
I value the close contact AVI has with the partners in India, which makes it possible to respond to their needs rather than imposing solutions. A huge asset here is AVIís small army of committed supporters . AVI is an organisation I am proud to be associated with.
