We will be raising money for two charities during this expedition, both of them doing vital work in one of the poorest countries in the world.
One of those selected is the educational charity Our Kids, Our Future Madagascar. We have selected a fundraising target of GBP 1,850 which is the equivalent of USD 2,500. This would cover around 3 months of work by Our Kids, Our Future Madagascar.
In Madagascar, a $4 annual school inscription fee is often all that stands between a kid and an education. Only one out of two of the poorest children attends primary school in Madagascar. Our Kids, Our Future Madagascar identifies and recruits dynamic and motivated youth leaders who want to keep their community’s kids in school.
These local youth leaders work with local officials, traditional leaders, and school officials to identify local children who are not attending school. They hold a meeting with the parents – almost all female-headed households – to discuss how they can get the kids back in school. When the parents agree to support their children to attend school, Our Kids, Our Future Madagascar pays the school inscription fees and provides the children with the school supplies needed for school.
Where possible, Our Kids, Our Future Madagascar also supports school lunch programs and ensures that the schools have proper sanitation facilities.

Hi Everyone, We have now finished the expedition and have "cashed out" the previous fundraising page. We will be donating it to the charity shortly, having already been given a generous $2000! However, we will continue to raise funds for the next few months, so if you still wish to donate to this great cause now that we're back, please do so here!
