Back in 2015 I participated in a school trip to the stunning country of Morocco. Our aim was to complete a trek through the Atlas mountains and enjoy the awe inspiring scenery. This trip became one of the best experiences of my life and when the chance arose for me to return, I had to take it. However this time it was for a cause.
What stood out to me on the trip were my interactions with the children in the mountain settlements. They lived in conditions completely different to what I am used to. Whats more, many of them were unable to get an eduation as the few schools in the area were sparsely seperated and difficult to get to. I was shocked to learn that this was a common occurence in the country. Furthermore, the families who do send their children to school, will almost always send their eldest boy. However this means that the girls in Morocco will remain uneducated as their parents cannot afford to put them through school.
Enabling for these young girls to get an education by supplying equiptment and building boarding houses for the girls to stay in while they attend school is the primary focus of Education For All (EFA). This is the charity which our group is focusing on raising money for, as we head back to Morocco to help the girls this October.

In order to do this, 3 of us (Seb, Louis and Sam) out of the small group of 13 taking part in this trip have decided to do a sponsored bike cycle from our hometown of Bristol, all the way to Paris. We will be departing on august 27th from ashton court and returning the week after.
Our trip will involve 4 days of cycling through towns, cities and country roads of both countries, we will start at Ashton court in Bristol and end at the Arc de Triumph in the centre of Paris.
Day 1- Bristol to Salisbury
Day 2- Salisbury to Portsmouth, Ferry- Portsmouth to Caen
Day 3- Caen to Evreux
Day 4- Evreux to Paris
(between £50-100 will go towards travel costs)
