Two ordinary guys cycling across 10,000 km of sub-Saharan Africa with a goal to raise $15,000 = extraordinary!
Early this year in February, Alex Antrobus and Murray Beaumont, two young South Africans, cycled through rural Africa to experience a different type of life being lived by so many on the continent. The route took them from South Africa through Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya before flying back home. They travelled on highway and remote byways to reach communities impacted by development NGOs that provide funding and management for clean water and to visit the not-so-fortunate communities that suffer needlessly without this basic necessity. The goal was to provide impetus for change and raise $15,000 for The Water Project to cover costs for two wells.
Alex & Murray, great job and thanks for the inspiration! Read more about their journey.
