Weʼre raising £4,000 to help Orbis expeditions launch ‘Sport with a Purpose’ - a new campaign aimed at raising awareness and improving nutrition in Malawi.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Story

In October 2018, Kelly and 20 teammates including me and my twin sister Lindsay will take on the ultimate Malawi Challenge: running Mulanje Mountain, cycling across Zomba Plateau, and kayaking on Lake Malawi.

Kelly is excited to be working with Orbis Expeditions, to help them launch ‘Sport with a Purpose’ - a new campaign aimed at raising awareness of key organisations working towards improving nutrition in Malawi.

The team will visit several community initiatives while in Malawi, in order to help raise awareness of this year’s Sport with a Purpose cause: Raising awareness about health and well being in Malawi.

One of these initiatives is Street Chef which aims to get more nutritious street food out to Malawians, using locally sourced food, cooked in an environmentally friendly way.

Chris and Florence combined their passion for permaculture and nutrition with the need in Malawi to fight against deforestation, and came up with stoves that use minimal firewood and are the perfect accessory for a street food kitchen.

These stoves come hand in hand with recipes and training for the business ‘street chefs’ on how to make delicious, local food that is cheap to buy, accessible to source and – most importantly – packed with nutrients.

The dream is no more chicken and chips cooked in vats of oil, no more cheap packets of crisps bought for a lunchtime snack…instead, street kitchens feeding city workers and school children while simultaneously building a business for the street chefs.

We would be extremley grateful for any help we can get to fund this trip as we feel it is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
