The events are also an opportunity to raise funds to further the work that IDRF is doing in these countries as well as to start new projects that support the development and empowerment of women, children, men, orphans and families so that no only do they meet their basic needs as human beings, but that they have the skills and tools required to live a life of prosperity.
