"Hope"  "Health"  "Opportunity"  "Progress"  "Education" 

 

In late July, Help Them HOPE will be proudly launching the Dream Big, Rise Higher Campaign. The aim is to raise awareness for youth living with disability and ease the discrimination they face in everyday life. The idea is to use inspiration, dreams, and an emphasis on education to teach youth about the importance of motivation, independence, and inclusion. The Dream Big, Rise Higher Campaign and its partners wish to inspire all youth to achieve greatness.

 

        

 

The campaign will be led by Luke Blezard, an Englishman who has lived in Peru for 5 years. Luke previously climbed Mount Huascarán, the highest mountain in Peru, in 2013 and rose a whopping $11,000. Luke’s passion for adventure and compassion for people, has lead him to conduct these climbs on the behalf of the charities of his choice. Luke hopes to inspire youth to turn their dreams into realities by defying the conventional. Along the way, Luke will be conducting a series of school assemblies in order to connect with the youth of Peru, while providing social media updates to ensure transparency throughout the entire campaign.

Help Them HOPE is proud to be working with Luke Blezard and expects to raise $15,000 that will grant the provision of an additional 15 educational scholarships to youth living with disabilities in Peru. HOPE will also be teaming up with schools to conduct non-uniform days to raise funds as well as organize specialized lesson plans, giving teachers the opportunity to inform children of all ages the importance of education, motivation, and inclusion.

HOPE will be releasing a series of episodes where followers will be updated about current students, their health, their education, and the progress they have made thus far. Each student will also reveal what motivates them, what their dreams are, and include a brief bio on themselves, sharing the many details of their lives.

Luke expects to summit on December 25th, 2015 and hopes to spend Christmas on the roof of the Americas!
