My Motivation:

Hi, as I run the HK Trailwalker 100km Marathon, I want each step to count. I have been associated with Milaap for the past one year or so and I think this is a great time to expand my association and bring job linked training to youth in need.

Help me make a difference to Education & Training for 5 candidates, amounting to US$ $500. I will match 1 for 1.. thereby doubling the impact
