The aim of this journey is to collect funds to help the humanity projects in favour of the poorest children in Africa. A charitable journey which on its way take human aid and distribute hundreds of pairs of shoes, uniforms and footballs to these poor children with the project called ‘A shoe for a dream’

The ‘Raid’ start from the Turin Iveco Offices and then work its way through Europe and down the West Coast of Africa crossing through Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, the Western Sahara, Mauritius, Senegal, Mali, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo,Benin, Nigeria , Camerun, Gabon, Congo, Congo DR, Angola, Namibia and South Africa. The arrival of the expedition in South Africa coincide with the beginning of the World Football Cup games.
