More than 700 million people in the world are illiterate and two-thirds of those are women. Poverty, population growth, and war zones have deprived families of an opportunity of learning to read and write. An illiterate person is unaware of human rights and experiences feelings of fear and lack of power. At Asha Danbury, we believe that education is a fundamental human right. Every child has a right to be in school.
As we look around us, there are many families who find it hard to make ends meet. As part of the 5K event, we are organizing a Drive to benefit the Bethel community food pantry.
Walking and running improve cardiac risk factors and offer protection against diabetes, inflammation, and obesity, among others. Show your support to our cause, participate in the 5K event and feel good from the benefits of an exercise while empowering those who depend on you to change their world.
