2022 Walk For Education – Camino

Our Kaleidoscope Child Foundation Walk For Education is expanding!

In the summer of 2022 year, Kaleidoscope founder David Ault walked the Portuguese route of the ancient pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago. Starting on the steps of Sé Cathedral in Lisbon on July 8, he traveled 620 kilometers (385 miles) and finished at the famed cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. David’s pilgrimage raised close to $50000 and will bring awareness to vital programs that are ready to be launched in the rural territories that Kaleidoscope serves.

All of the generous donations are being allocated to supporting these three initiatives:

Construct extensive W.A.S.H. (global water, sanitation and hygiene) programs in the rural slum areas of our schools in Lakhanpur and Bodhgaya, India. The WASH program works on long-term prevention and control measures for improving health, reducing poverty, and improving socio-economic development as well as responding to global emergencies and outbreaks of life-threatening illnesses.

Fund and design educational forums for village women. Already piloted with success in our territories in Cambodia, these first of their kind initiatives for rural women are addressing sensitive subjects such as domestic abuse and mental wellness along with longstanding issues of hygiene, malnutrition and illiteracy.

Renew scholarships for 25 Guatemalan students in our programs with Jabel Tinamit Language School in Panajachel, Guatemala for 2023. These children in our program travel hours each school day from surrounding villages to learn. Many of them have been retrieved from slave labor and given this chance to positively change the trajectory of their lives and their Mayan village families.
