EVENT ‘RUN FOR INCLUSION’ TO BE HELD ON NOV 23
Thursday, 25 September 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Buoyed over the last year’s tremendous response to the first edition of ‘Run for Inclusion’ in December, 2013 in five district headquarters towns in Odisha and 50 cities in India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, the second edition of the event by NGO Aide et Action, South Asia, is all set to take place on November 23.
The ‘Run for Inclusion 2014 — An Effort to Turn Dreams into Reality’ aims to promote dignity, respect and help the poor and marginalised sections, especially the children (particularly girl child), persons with disability, population forced to migrate under distress conditions, unemployed youths and women get access to quality education and better employment opportunities.
The run will be organised simultaneously in 25 cities across India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal. Around 5,000 people in Odisha are expected to participate in it, which will be held at three district towns such as Balangir, Brahmapur and Rourkela this year.
The resources mobilised through the mega event would be used for quality education of children and enabling better employment opportunities for youths from the poor and weaker sections of the society, pointed out Aide et Action International programme officer Saroj Barik in a release.
