WOHAA stands for the Wings Of Hope Achievement Award. It is an award which allows young intellectual people to showcase their fund-raising skills through a variety of activities, however “crazy”, as quoted by the official website. Some fundraisers in the past have included sky-diving and a sponsored head shave!
There are six categories for the winners of this competition: 1. Most innovative team 2. Most awareness raised 3. Most funds raised 4. Best presentation 5. SPEAK OUT 6. Overall best team/individual The six winning teams of these categories are the semi-finalists and get invited to speak at the House of Lords and show their “WOHAA Journey” in a scrapbook, PowerPoint presentation etc.
The overall winners get a trip to India where they see how the money which they have raised affects many children’s lives. The money goes to develop education in India and Malawi where the rate of education is damaging to the country.
We have come up with many different ideas, mainly based on what we are good at as individuals. We are doing: 1. A Sponsored Run/Walk (5 Km) 2. A Sponsored Swim (2 Km) 3. A Sponsored Dance (Dance-Off) 4. An Archery Showcase 5. A Sponsored Cycle (5 Km) 6. A Cake Sale (Home-Baked)
Our run which was 5 Km long was held in Ealing. We started off at 2 o’clock and 3 of us finished in 32 minutes. Everyone finished in 40 minutes. We raised around £100 just from this event and we are expecting more in the future.
You can help children in India and Malawi who are deprived of an education, one of the most important things in life. A quote “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day but teach the man how to fish and you feed him for life”. We hope you can give some money to our WOHAA group to help people in India and Malawi.
