How to Support RYDA...
RUBAGA YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION, UGANDA
His pain ... Their gain.
|Why do this Arnie?
I see running for RYDA as a way to live out my faith. A marathon is personally challenging, but it is minor in comparison to the challenges these young people have to go through.
Then why RYDA?
My congregation have supported RYDA for 18 years. We know every dollar raised helps to change the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children and youths in Uganda.
Put Arnie's energy to good use!

|Committed to running ... Training Video ... Committed to RYDA.
Arnie has been training all through Melbourne's winter.
Fog, rain, sun, wind - his commitment never waivers.
Look for him if you are in the Dandenong Ranges. The hills are his training track!
He will run more than 1000km before October 12th.

- RYDA's children come from orphaned or otherwise disadvantaged backgrounds. At RYDA they are trained in life skills and to government standard in a chosen trade. When they graduate they are assisted to find work. View the slide show below to get a sense of what this opportunity means to these young people.

Rejoice as you celebrate their 2013 Graduation Highlights
Think of it. Every person in this photo came to RYDA as a vulnerable youth:
- perhaps orphaned,
- perhaps from the street,
- perhaps from child labour,
- perhaps for some other reason, facing a hopeless future.
these children are graduating with a government approved qualification!
- choosing to live at RYDA,
- choosing one of RYDA's vocational training programs,
- choosing to work hard and achieve their best result,
