We're inspired by people who are passionate about what they believe in and have the courage to overcome obstacles to achieve their goals.
Seeing is Believing
Henry and Joseph
Blind athlete, Henry Wanyoike, and his running partner, Joseph Kibunja, take part in our marathons, speaking to thousands of people about the importance of having the courage and the right partner to pursue their dreams.
They’ve helped raise awareness and millions of dollars for our global community programme Seeing is Believing, which helps tackle avoidable blindness.
Chayya Gaikwad joined our Goal programme - which empowers women through sport, financial education and life skills - in 2009. She’s originally from a village in Maharashtra and moved to Asha Sadan - a home for women and girls in distress - when she was 12 years old.
After showing great potential and an avid interest in sports, Chhaya was taken on as an assistant coach for the Goal Mumbai programme. She's since been offered an internship at the Bank and shortly after joining us, she moved from Asha Sadan to a hostel for working women. She’s now learning to become independent and money savvy.
Helping others to see
We raise money to prevent and treat avoidable blindness - matching every donation.
Empowerment through sport
In many of our markets, it's difficult for young women to participate in economic development.
Take part in one of our nine marathons across the globe or come and support the runners.
