You can be part of The Mozi Run despite COVID-19


The current pandemic means that you cannot run in The Mozi Run this year, BUT 13 Mozambican students have volunteered to run the 5km for you!


All 13 are students at the King of Kings School who want to raise funds to help the school overcome the challenges caused by the COVID-19 crisis.


This is your opportunity to stand with these students to help their school in a time of great need.


Each student has a goal to raise $1000 and they need Australian supporters to sponsor them in their run. They hope that you will help them reach their goal and support their school!


You will see the photos of each of the 13 students from Grades 2 - 12 below. Click on their photos to learn more about them and why they are asking for your support.


You can sponsor one or more students by clicking on any of the DONATE NOW buttons on each individual student page. 


Every donation over $2.00 is tax deductible.


BUT YOU CAN DO MORE: Get your friends & family involved...


Whilst on an individual student page, copy the page address from the web address bar and paste it into an email or social media post and share it with your friends, relatives or colleagues, and ask them to help sponsor your chosen student.


Let's do all we can to support and encourage these enthusiastic students as they run to make a difference in their lives and the lives of their school mates.





























Don't forget to leave a message for the student you're supporting with your donation!

Video Snapshot The Mozi Run Goes to Mozambique (2020)

There was great excitement in Mozambique on Saturday 14 November. This was a special day with a special event. The Mozi Run had finally come to Mozambique.  

So much excitement and anticipation had been generated for the event that more than the 13 sponsored runners turned up to run. 

Wouldn’t it be great if their effort was recognised with a response from Australian supporters that exceed their fundraising target?
 


This was the first time that such an event had been held in Beira City. The students and staff were so motivated by The Mozi Run, that they are now talking about making it an annual event.

The Mozi Run goes to Mozambique isn't just raising much-needed funds for the Kings of Kings School. It has provided a focus of hope for our students, staff and their families. They were proud to be doing something that would help them and their school through these very difficult circumstances.

Most of the participants had experienced the destruction of cyclone Idai in 2019 and are suffering under the circumstances created by COVID-19. 

You can bring further hope and encouragement by sponsoring them and by writing a short message on the student’s individual sponsorship page.

These messages will be collated, translated and sent to the students. 

Join with me in sponsoring one or more of the students pictured below and send a message of hope to those who so desperately need it.

Thank you for your responsiveness.

COVID-19 Challenges for the King of Kings School & Mission Educate

When schools were closed by the Mozambican government in April, King of Kings School teachers developed distance learning strategies so the students could continue their learning.

As the pandemic developed, more and more students were unable to pay school fees. By June, no income was being received from school fees which provided 90% of the school's operational costs. The Australian office funded reduced salaries in Mozambique. 

Because the usual fundraising events in Australia were cancelled, cash reserves at the Australian office were depleted. In July, school staff received 25% of their salary and by August salary payments ceased. A basic living allowance was paid to staff.

Students in some grade levels began returning to class in August with social distancing restrictions. This has meant an increase in the number of classes as class sizes were reduced. Teachers have had their teaching load doubled. There is still uncertainty when all students will return to class. 

Because teachers have a double workload with classes that have returned, the Australian office is challenged to pay for their extra teaching time and to prepare for the 2021 school year. 

Funds raised in The Mozi Run goes to Mozambique will be utilised to cover return to school costs and provide support to families who because of COVID-19, are unable to pay school fees.
