A team of our partners and supporters have undertaken a mountain trek in Ouanokrim, one of the tallest mountains in the world, to raise money for the Bambooka/PEPE project which as you also know is underway. This trek commenced last week, unfortunately the area which they have gone to has very limited reception and no internet connection

Morocco Trek

Bambooka Morocco Trek 2012

We have looked at many ways to raise money for the project, events, festivals, football nights, discos any and everything has been explored, don’t take that too literally. The biggest is the mountain trek in Morocco, some of the partners namely Baz & Ruth Van Cranenburgh and David have committed to this trek, some of the public have also given their time and energy to the trek. This particular mountain is one of the tallest in the world and our love, respect and appreciation goes out to them for their hard work prior to the trek and the hard work they will endure. We are proud to say that last week the trek commenced and 10 very enthused and brave people took off to Marrakech. We look forward to hearing from them at the next possible chance, probably when someone catches some reception, we’re keeping our fingers crossed on that one. We will be updating the blog with posts on the progress they will be making when we know more, for now our love and prayers go out to them for a successful trek and a more than safe return. Watch out for more to come.
