Africa 2020 Project
In early 2020 we will begin our Africa 2020 project. We will be driving a custom built VW beach buggy from the Bristol to Cape Town. 2019 will be all about planning, and of course this involves all of the necessary admin such as; visas, saving, sponsorship and immunisation, we will also probably need to make sure the car works at some point! All this aside this trip has a greater planning element;
The objective of Africa 2020 is to ascertain how we create a different kind of adventure. One where part of the magic is contributing directly to the people and communities that you are fortunate enough to meet along the way. This includes;
Working with various grass roots charities
Gaining a further understanding of different cultures
Identify the future needs that people, communities and charities have in order to assist in improving people lives in a sustainable way
Forging a connection with people.
Allow ourselves to be challenged and change our own perceptions often formed from limited media and political opinions from within our own countries.
