My name is Bonnie Moloney and I am very excited about the venture I am about to undertake on March 9, I am heading to Vietnam to trek through the Sapa Valley. It’s a huge challenge for me, and is unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Over 5 days, I will trek through impoverished rural villages in the north of Vietnam and visit places where the money we raise will be spent.
Am I crazy? No! I am not doing this for nothing, I am taking on this challenge in order to raise funds for the WEAVE Project, Women’s Economic Empowerment through Agricultural Value Chain Enhancement (WEAVE). This project will empower villagers and create a brighter future in Vietnam, especially women, they will be educated and be able to have a say in decisions that are made at home and in their communities. WEAVE will help them earn a decent living from farming pigs, cinnamon or bananas, depending on where they live.
This is a cause is so dear to my heart, with children of my own I couldn’t image the poverty so many families face
