Africa Trek East

Turin-Cape Town down the East Coast


Africa Trek 2007-2008 is a journey undertaken by Robin Trevor-Goode and Matteo Bottanelli which start in Turin in October 2007 and finish in Cape Town.

The trip take place entirely on the fly with two Multistrada 1100 motorbikes kindly made available by Ducati.
The itinerary is as follows: Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland and South Africa.
Along this route many countries afflicted by poverty, disease, marginalization and exploitation: conditions that create serious problems for children by preventing them from having a peaceful childhood.
The objective of this project is to bring practical help to children living in these countries. In order to achieve this objectives were set over two complementary strategies: the first included direct intervention on the site, the other being an awareness campaign aimed at countries in the industrialized north.

The main objectives are:

- to make contact with the organization in charge of distributing the sports clothes kits to the children;
- to supervise the delivery of clothing and sports equipment;
- to make an assessment of the opportunities to promote and support the long-term project;
- to provide educational materials and technical training to local personnel who were to be responsible for monitoring the program over the long term;
- to monitor the proper use of funds allocated;
- to collect photographs and information on socio-cultural values of these countries and their way of life and also regarding attitudes to football;
- to increase awareness of the positive realities of third world countries by supporting their socio-cultural values;
- to guide people towards more open and positive values by promoting the genuine and pure attitudes of a culture evident through the game of football;
- to increase the propensity for solidarity and respect for others, against the prejudices of race, sex, religion, culture or political affiliation;
- to exploit the visibility of media to promote the association and its aims.
