GULF FOR GOOD
DUBAI MARATHON 2024
By choosing to support Gulf for Good in the Dubai Marathon 2024, you will be raising funds for one of our charity projects, Kilimanjaro Initiative in Kenya.
Kilimanjaro Initiative inspires youth to have self-belief and overcome life's challenges by organizing leadership camps and climbs to benefit the youth. One of the ways they do this is through sport; thus instigating behavioural reform, enabling positive contributions towards sustainable community development and offering opportunities for self-development. Kilimanjaro Initiative works with children between the ages of 8 and 16 and youth between the ages of 17 and 30.
Gulf for Good is supporting Kilimanjaro Initiative by promoting education, mentorship, and leadership through their sports program and an inclusive early childhood development center. This project will specifically work with children and young people, without a safe or secure place to live in areas of Nairobi Kibera, specifically targeting children and young people between the age ranges of 9 – 25 yrs. This program will use boxing and martial arts (B&MA) to engage vulnerable young people living in insecure and unsafe housing in the informal settlement of Kibera in Nairobi, to improve physical and mental well-being, increase opportunities in education, employment and reduce youth involvement in crime and violence through a holistic package of personal development, education and employability support.
