YOU can make a HUGE difference!

2016 marks the 11th year of the Kopano Walk/Run for Economic Empowerment! Join hundreds from around the world who, walking in "kopano" (unity), are out to raise at least $50,000. 100% of that will go through PEER Servants to ten indigenous Christian microfinance partners and ultimately some of the over 150,000 clients they serve. It will provide micro-loans that enable moms and dads to grow businesses to support their families, churches, and communities. It will educate children. It will support programs that are proclaiming God's love. In short, it will extend a bit more of heaven to the materially poor, and to you as well! Please join us!




$25k Down, $25K to Go!

Thanks to everyone who came to our Walk today and has allowed us to already approach $25,000 raised - 100% of which will empower the materially poor around the world with micro-loans and more. It's not too late to sign up and walk right where you are on a day convenient to you, and/or to support a walker with a crowdfunding page as we strive to reach our $50,000 fundraising goal. All donations received by December 15 will be applied to the 2016 Walk fundraising totals and go to empower the materially poor by the end of 2016.

May God take what has been raised and multiply it many times as micro-loans are made, repaid, and made time and time again.


Thank You, Corporate Sponsors!

For many years now, two very generous corporations have sponsored our Walk for Economic Empowerment and are doing so again in 2016.

Over the 11 years of the Walk, Stop&Shop has provided thousands of dollars of gift cards that have taken care of breakfast, snack, and lunch items to thank the walkers who have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to empower the materially poor around the world. Stop&Shop is always so encouraging and generous in their support and we cannot thank them enough!

HoneyDew Donuts
HoneyDew Donuts has been a long-term corporate sponsor of our Walk, providing delicious donuts and coffee to welcome our walkers as they arrive in the morning. John Kennedy, owner of the franchise at 142 Lowell Street in Wakefield, right on the Walk route, and a few other franchises, has enthusiastically and generously supported the Walk and we thank Him for allowing us to express our appreciation to our walkers.

In addition, we want to thank Meletharb in Wakefield, Unos, and Starbucks who provided gift certificates and more as a way of recognizing our walkers.

Please join us in supporting Stop&Shop, HoneyDew Donuts, and these organizations given their generous support.
