TAKE PART IN THE CHALLENGE!
We may be visiting one of the most beautiful places in the world but this trip will push you to your physical and mental limits. Depending on your skill level, you could be pedaling up to 90km a day with elevation gain of almost 1000m through the steep and dramatic Cape Fold Mountains. But ultimately, the bigger the challenge, the greater the reward! Once you hit the finish line you’ll feel on top of the world!
WHY RIDE FOR CHANGE?
03 – 08 october 2019
Poverty in South Africa is highest for children. 66.8% of children live in poverty and 4 die from hunger each day. It doesn’t need to be like this.
Afrika Tikkun is fighting to reduce youth poverty in South Africa – not by giving handouts or gifts but by providing young people with the tools to economically empower themselves and their families. We carry out our vision through the Cradle to Career 360° model, which supports young people through a combination of nutrition, health, education, empowerment, and career development from birth until they are ready to enter the workforce.
Our purpose is to end youth poverty and unemployment in South Africa. Join us on our journey and help us raise funds for this crucial work.
