Starting educate. has led us to do some pretty crazy things, but this obstacle-filled mud run might be the craziest so far! On Saturday April 21st, four educate. team members voluntarily subjected themselves to thick mud, barbed wire and electric shocks in the name of raising money for one of educate.‘s projects: a library for Escuela Guadalupe Ulloa.
Frankie braved the electric shock mud crawl.
Lisa was the only one to complete the monkey bars challenge over freezing water.
Fionn, who is scared of heights, went down a 10m ‘Superman’ slide into an icy lake.
And Antonia successfully scaled a 3+ meter wall (with some help from a random Dutch guy).
“I didn’t realise there were obstacles!” said Fionnuala after the run. “I genuinely didn’t think it was possible and I’m still in shock that we finished it!”
We are currently working with the Guadalupe Ulloa primary school to support them in starting a library for their 300+ students. While teachers and leaders on the ground are designing the implementation of the project, we are working with a group of local Honduran carpenters to build furniture for the library space, and we are working to raise funds for these and other library resources.
