New beneficiary charity – This Is EPIC

The World Aid Walk are very pleased to welcome the Guernsey based charity This Is EPIC onto the WAW committee. This means that 5 charities will all benefit from the funds raised in 2018.

Lets make this the best walk yet and help to reduce poverty throughout the world

This Is EPIC are a charity that is passionate about helping families rise out of poverty. It is focussed on implementing a scheme called ‘Village Savings and Loans’ within communities in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Village Savings and Loan projects provide people and communities living in extreme poverty, to have access to informal financial services. This access acts as a help up and catalyst for income generating activities. It empowers individuals and communities with knowledge and skills and has a sustainable and positive impact in the fight against poverty.
