"Jai Ma" Fundraiser 
April 11-12th April 2023
Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary 
Uttarakhand, India 
March 23

Join us as we walk  through the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in the Himalayan Foothills to reach point Zero in the Himalayan Foothills in Uttarakhand - North India covering approx 20Km, to raise funds for Water Aid India.

 

We are requesting support in the targeted projects located in Gaya and Madhubani to improve WASH services in 100 schools (50 schools each) by constructing new handwashing stations in school ensuring ready access to safe drinking water within premises having potential to affect children’s health. Facilitating and implementing proper handwashing, with soap and water will form healthy hygiene habits that will extend into their lives outside of school inevitably causing change on a wider scale.

Our Route will be offering spell-binding views of the majestic Himalayan peaks such as Chaukhamba, Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, Panchachuli, and Kedarnath. The main attraction of Binsar aside from rich fauna and flora is the 300 kms of majestic and panoramic view of Himalayan peaks from Binsar Zero point.

With Jai Ma, meaning "Mother Earth" in the Hindi language, we hope to inspire a whole family approach towards raising awareness and giving alongside those organizations working towards a better future for one of the world most important ressources.

This Fundraiser has now been successfully ended.
Thank you for your Support.

July 2022

Unfortunately, the ability to send children to kindergarten or day-care is not possible for a lot of women in Cusco Peru, therefore, the only way to take care of their children is to keep them by their side. This results in the children staying on the streets the whole day, playing with the products being sold by their mothers, or just having a nap.As the Ubuntu Family Initiative we strongly believe in the education of children and along with Peru Volunteer we have contributed towards the Market library and gave the first of our Art classes which we look forward to continuing online soon.

This beautiful Andean village has grown significantly over the years, improving its infrastructure and the quality of life of its over 300 families.  In order to enable them to have frank clean water whilst they work their lands we donated 10 portable water filters.

We will be transported midway to Maras saltpans due to terrain complications and from there we will continue our hike back further down over 4 km to the sacred valley.

Join me as I walk through the Mara over the course of two days covering approximately 24Km, a little over the distance of a half marathon accompanied by a Guide, hoping to raise funds for The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which supports the conservation, preservation, and protection of wildlife and habitats. 

On the first day, my route will head west from Kicheche Valley, trekking across several beautiful valleys covering 10Km before arriving at the fly camp on the Western side of Naboisho Conservancy - 52,000 acres (210 km2) of private land dedicated to wildlife conservation - where Olivia will be waiting for me. We will be camping in a tent in the wilderness before I set off at dawn the next day, continuing the journey on foot in the cool morning, uncovering points of interest throughout the journey along the escarpment and Seketa Valley of Olare Motorogi Conservancy. This walk will cover approx 14 Km until I reach the Bush Camp where my trail will end.

With Naboisho, meaning "Coming Together" in the Maa language, we hope to inspire a whole family approach towards giving alongside those organizations working towards a better future for both wildlife and mankind.

With Covid-19 posing an existential threat to Africa as the Ubuntu family initiative, we are now supporting the WaSH - Water Sanitation and Hygiene - a project with the Water Project Charity in order to keep water flowing uninterrupted to those most in need through the water project.
