Hey everyone! I'm Matthew from South Africa!
I'm an adventurer, humanitarian, teacher, writer and anthropologist passionate about 'at the edge' expeditions and outreach service projects. See my website www.adventuresattheworldsedge.com for more about my missions.
I'm fundraising to get sports shoes for all 1800 students of uKhanyo Primary School in Masiphumelele, Cape Town. A donation of just R150 buys a pair of brand new sneakers which will offer confidence, happiness and hope to the amazing kids of uKhanyo.
I volunteer as a sports coach at the school via the physical education initiative run by the outstanding NGO MasiCorp, and hold social beach cricket, rugby and soccer sessions to connect with the kids from Masiphumelele, but also with people of all backgrounds in the spirit of playing, uniting and experiencing life to the fullest.
Any remaining funds will go toward supporting my expedition to climb Mt. Mafadi, South Africa's highest peak (3,450m) in the Drakensberg, as soon as the target is near complete / complete.
Your kind support will be immensely appreciated! You'll contribute toward making a genuine difference to the youth of uKhanyo Primary and laying bricks in the bridges we must all built in creating an understanding, collaborative and compassionate world.

Masicorp works for the people of the Masiphumelele township, which is home to a community of more than 38,000 people disadvantaged by the historical legacy of apartheid and poverty. Our approach has been to ask the community where and how they need support and, from this, we know the residents want a hand up not a handout.
