Small Steps

Do you think you could cycle from Paris to Geneva? 503.9 km, mainly uphill, over mountains and hills, with no material reward? What about 643.7 km from Niagara to New York?

The former is exactly the journey a group of cyclists undertook to raise money for Small Steps charity last August, and latter is the journey they will be undertaking on the first of August this year. The causes that they’re helping to support this year include the SCSNA (Solihull Special Needs Children’s Association), which provide’s support to the children, often for free, by teaching basic skills, which we might take for granted. They also take the children swimming once a week in an old minibus on its last legs! Without such a playgroup, parents and carers would not have any rest from the hard work they have to put in just to look after these children with special needs. Small-Steps have supported the local charity since 2011.

This year they also begin their support of the Chandratilak Vidyamandir Society, which runs two Primary schools in the tribal area near Bilaspur in Chattisgarh, India. The society runs primary schooling in the tribal area near Bilaspur in Chattisgarh, India. In this school, 186 village children are getting free education until year 4. The society, which has been running on voluntary contributions alone with little support available from other sources, is in danger of closing down. Small-Steps Charity is contributing towards provision of books, school bags, shoes, raincoats, warm clothing to both students and parents, and a healthy and balanced diet. The vision is for Small Steps to establish a long term relationship with the school and help support them as they continue with the fantastic work that they do.

Capri Consulting has worked closely with the charity since the beginning of its support of the Society, and we’re proud to announce that we are the official sponsors of the 2015 cycling team for their journey from Niagara to New York, after our Company Director, Krishna Thakur, was inspired by the fantastic work they do whilst on a recent business trip to India.

The Charity also holds other regular sporting fundraisers like badminton tournaments and charity walks, find out more and see how you can help here.

Capri to donate 10% of all proceeds to Nepal Earthquake Appeal

 

On the 25th April at 11:56 NST a 7.8 Magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, which devastated the nation and its people, killing over 7,000 people and injuring nearly 15,000. 3 million people have been left starving and in need of food, 130,000 houses have been destroyed, 24,000 people are living in makeshift shanty towns and 1000’s of children have been separated from their families.

To try and aid the millions in need and support the charity workers who travelled from around the world to help, Capri will be donating 10% of all of its training course proceeds for the whole of May to the Nepal Earthquake appeal – this includes our Agile Master Class beginning on the 23rd and our User Story Writing workshop on the 30th.

Even if you’re not booking a course with us, please donate to the appeal anyway; people need your help. You can donate here.
