They did it !!!
The year 2014 was our first participation in the OXFAM Trailwalker, the joined effort of hundreds of teams for a challenge of a lifetime!
The PROVA team, “ Les Filles à la Vanille & Their Britishman », composed of Muriel, Alessandra, Fabienne and Ian, had risen to the challenge by walking 100km in 29h29, day and night, through the beautiful Natural Park of Morvan in Burgundy.
Beyond the four walkers, the OXFAM Trailwalker mobilized several members of the big PROVA family, all proud to participate in the event and all united around our motto “WE ARE ONE”.
For the 2015 edition, a new PROVA team joined us, “The Mister Beans” composed of Bernard, Christian, Gwenou and Philippe.
Thus, on June 6th and 7th, the two teams took up the challenge making us proud once again!
With courage and perseverance « Les Filles à la Vanille & the Britishman » have set the record in 27 hours 37 minutes and 57 seconds and “ The Mister Beans” in 25 hours 54 minutes and 24 seconds.
This challenge is for PROVA an opportunity to bring its teams and clients together to raise funds for the NGO VDB Vanille Durable Bemanevika. Created to roll out an economic and social program in Madagascar, this NGO VDB works to improve the lives of vanilla farmers through various actions such as:
- development of agricultural activities
-support for community vitality
-providing medical equipment
Even if you did not participate in the walk, you can still contribute to improving the lives of vanilla planter’s families by making a donation and help the NGO to grow.
