At People against Poverty, we are helping people find a pathway out of poverty, one step at a time. We would love you to part of this journey, and invite you to set yourself a Steps for Change challenge.

You could do a 5k fun run, or run a marathon.

You could do an abseil, or a dance-a-thon.

You could simply walk up and down your stairs!

However you want to count your steps, why not make them count – by setting yourself a target to raise money for PaP at the same time.

It couldn’t be easier.

You can either set up your own fundraising page on one of the many fundraising platforms such as GoFundMe. Or you can visit our Steps for Change fundraising page on GivenGain and follow these instructions:

  1. Click on “Start fundraising” and sign up with your name and e-mail address.
  2. Personalise your project. Make your project unique by adding images and sharing what incredible thing you are doing and why.
  3. Share your Steps for Change challenge with friends, family, and colleagues
  4. Let us know about your challenge by emailing us at

Thanks to all our 2024 Steps for Change challengers!
