ActionAid is an international development organization originally founded in England in 1972 as a way to sponsor children in need in India and Kenya. Now headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, ActionAid works throughout the world in a variety of sectors–combating climate change, HIV/AIDs prevention, conflict resolution, ending poverty, providing clean drinking water–to name a few. By 2010, ActionAid was helping 25 million people in over 40 countries with their fight against poverty, and linking their voices with those in a position to create lasting change.
Shoebaru will be working together with ActionAid to set up project visits along the way south, to see the change they are creating throughout Africa and meet some of those that they are empowering. In return for their hospitality we will be donating both cars to their Cape Town office upon completion of the journey.
