What am I raising funds for?

My efforts were all in aid of SOS Childrens Villages and specifically a new village which has been built in Chipata, Zambia.

How am I fundraising?

I cycled 46,000 miles around the world over four years, although if you're here you alreay knew that.

Aside from this website, I also fundraise via guest speaking at schools. More information on that can be found by clicking here: Speaking.

Fast Facts About Zambia

  • Located in south-central Africa, Zambia is one of the worlds poorest countries with the average daily income at 60p per day.
  • 10% of the children in Zambia are orphans
  • 88% of these children have lost their parents to aids
  • Life expectancy is 38 years
  • 70% of houses in Zambia are caring for orphans

What will the money we raise go towards?

SOS Childrens Villages have built a new childrens village, medical centre and family strengthening programme  in Chipata, located in Zambias Eastern Province. With your help construction started in 2009 and was completed in summer 2012. 154 children moved into the village in October 2012 and fundraising is ongoing in order to keep the village funded.

SOS Childrens Villages in Zambia

SOS began work in Zambia in 1999 with the opening of a village in the capital city Lusaka, about 4 km from the centre and in a densely populated and very poor area.

In 2004 a second village was opened in Kitwe, the capital of the Copperbelt region in Northern Zambia, an area home to large migrant populations. Both villages have kindegartens, primary schools and are home to Family Strengthening Programmes (FSP's). These FSP's give practical help and counselling to 1,500 children and their families in the local community who are affected by HIV/AIDS. The SOS Medical Centre also treats patients from 18,000 local families.

A third SOS Childrens Village opened in Livingston in Summer 2008 near the world famous Victoria Falls. It has 15 family homes for 150 orphaned and abandoned children. An FSP was set up earlier in 2006 and is already supporting over 300 children and 150 caregivers in the Livingstone area.
