Me and My Cleaner

My favourite response to my claim that the UK is socially divided by income:

“That’s not true, I always say hello to my cleaner.” 

There is a famous African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”.

At The Challenge Network, we believe that the opposite is also true, “A divided village raises a divided child.”

The Challenge Network were recently awarded a global ‘Making a Difference’ award from international PR firm Weber Shandwick. The partnership with the firm was nominated as one of the top three pro bono projects across their 130 offices.

DEDICATED volunteers have been getting their hands dirty to prove not all teenagers are troublemakers.

OLDER people are making valid and positive contributions towards their communities and are not just sitting at home watching TV or complaining.
