We are doing this to raise awareness on what is currently happening to the children on our streets in Africa. We would like to document the cause from the Streets of Africa. Talking to first ladies, mayors and social workers along the way. Poverty, war, HIV/AIDS, have contributed to the epidemic, driving children into the streets. We are raising funds for the solution, the Ubuntu eco Village project.
If things go according to plan, we estimate our departure to be the first week of August and to continue for three months. We expect to reach Europe early November and to reach our final destination, London in late November.
The two of us riding BMW F800 GS motorbikes across Africa, roughing the elements, sleeping on the streets and at children's homes along the way. Sharing stories with the street kids and social workers. Interacting with street kids as much as possible.
We are looking for sponsorship in anyway possible, from product endorsements to financial contributions towards our campaign.We also require a production company or TV station to cover our ride. We also would like to partner with the corporate world, public figures and all those who support this cause. The ultimate goal being to make as much noise as possible and create awareness to the plight of the street children across Africa.
