ENTRAIDE & FRATERNITE
Run to help Haitian women and their families escape poverty
"Passing the gift" is the experience of guarding domestic animals set up by AFLIDEPA, partner of "Entraide et Fraternité". The principle is as follows: every young girl / woman receives a domestic animal (cow, goat, ...) for a fixed period during which she takes care of the animal whose milk and / or offspring she keeps. At the end of this time, she returns the animal to the organization, which then "lends" it to another person. Women learn the profession of breeding, previously reserved strictly for men, and derive an income from the sale of milk. This will enable them to pay for their children's schooling, a priority for Haitians. Schools are rare and far away. In addition, each family has to pay all the school fees of their children, which is a huge obstacle to schooling. Thanks to the donations collected, the AFLIDEPA organization will buy cows that will be entrusted to new women to train them in this trade and help them to be financially independent. A beautiful solidarity project that allows these women to support their families but also to send their children to school.
"Every year, what a pleasure to discover or rediscover the bucolic side of Brussels.For provincials like me, it's very interesting to run in this green part of the city.I usually say that Ecotrail lives 3 times: preparing it, running it and reliving the race past the finish line ". (Fernand, rider in solidarity with Ecotrail 21km)
