The Journey

Personal message

The Journey is Footsteps Through Africa's biggest initiative, and their best chance at creating positive change in the rural African communities that need it most.

Commencing at the end of April 2017, Jo will embark on a journey from the southern-most tip of Africa – Cape Agulhas – up the east coast of the continent, to the Ugandan village that started it all: Rubuguri. A total of 7200km is the undertaking.

Jo plans to spend 4000km of it on foot, 900km paddling across the length of Lake Malawi, and the remaining 2300km hitching a ride with fellow travellers and locals alike.

The aim of The Journey is to raise awareness, and the all-important funding to aid and establish projects in selected communities Jo encounters along the way. These are the literal “footsteps through Africa”, the idea that was born in Rubuguri to enhance the lives of people living in under-resourced and poverty-afflicted areas of Africa.
