KATHMANDU ADVENTURE SPONSORSHIP

Our journey began in 2013 when we had a crazy idea that we wanted to start our own 100% non-for-profit charity…

3 years later + 2 trips to Africa + thousands of lives changed we are about to embark on our 3rd trip with the support from Kathmandu’s Adventure Sponsorship Program.

We’re an adventurous young couple from the Gold Coast- always seeking our next adventure in a foreign country. So when we came up with the idea to travel to remote villages in Zimbabwe and provide clean drinking water to those who need it most- it was the perfect travel adventure for us!

You might be thinking WHY WATER?

(This was where the women in the Tengwe Village were collecting

water for their families before we completed 2 water projects)

663 Million people on our planet lack access to safe & clean drinking water- this causes a child to die every 21 seconds! By providing clean & safe drinking water- we are also providing opportunities for improved education (particularly for young girls), better health, agriculture, economic growth + sustainable & bright futures.

In November this year, we will embark on a 3-month journey into the dry, dusty remote villages in Zimbabwe. Living in huts orP1040149 our Kathmandu tent, no clean water, no electricity, no shower or flushing toilet & limited connection to the outside world- this is what we will call home for the next 3 months.

Our water & Sanitation projects include finding ground water, deep in the earth surface using various modern technology & ancient traditions, drilling 40+ meters into the earth surface using huge drilling trucks & installing manual hand pumps which will supply clean & fresh water for years to come & working with the local communities to create sustainable outcomes.

Thanks to Kathmandu, they have generously prepared us with the best equipment &  10603874_10152357208035756_5621943084730772006_oclothing which will help us achieve our goals & be prepared for the extreme environments we will face in the African Summer.

We take a camera with us to capture the moments of our journey- from this we have created a 30-minute documentary to show people what life is like in a world which is so far from our own. We hope this video will assist with future fundraising & awareness of the water crisis we still face today. 100% of all donations we receive go directly towards the projects.
