London Marathon 2019!
Sunday 28th April


​Action Village India are pleased to announce that we have a charity place in the 2019 London Marathon!  Our amazing runner, Krishna, is raising money and awareness for our well as his pulse (marathon training is as hard as fundraising).  We hope you'll support him by sponsoring his efforts here.

The money raised by Krishna will go towards the AVI Spring Appeal for Chilika Lake, Orissa.

This project run by Regional Centre for Development Cooperation (RCDC) in collaboration with Gopinath Juvak Sangha (GJS) aims to reduce
rural poverty and landlessness of 1000 families from fishing communities in 30 villages in and around the Chilika lake of Odisha. This will be achieved by enabling the families, and particularly the women, to gain access and ownership over land resource through advocacy and support and by providing alternative livelihood support. A further 400 women will be supported through pilot phases of other alternative livelihood initiatives.


There are many different ways to raise money for Action Village India so if you’re feeling energetic then there are a few options to get your trainers on and fundraise at the same time. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself to be a serious athlete or if you’re a novice who’s looking for an interesting goal; please get in touch if you’d like to take part in an events in support of AVI!

Please note that as an appreciation of all your effort we’ll pay for your entry fee; all we ask is that you raise a minimum amount (this varies by event) for our charity.

Or choose your own event. Drop us a line for a chat about how you can run for AVI.
