The Tuka-neers - Lanka Challenge 2012

The Tuka-neers - Lanka Challenge 2012

Personal message

In late August 2012 three men, representing their families, their friends, themselves and Hotel Hope will take on a gruelling challenge of physical and mental strength as they tour Sri Lanka… TUK TUK style.

James Pratt, Richard Muller and Alex Forsyth Thompson respectively from Deloitte and Touche,Wilderness
Safaris and ….. Well we don’t know really.. Will face challenges they have never faced before while they pledge to put their minds and bodies on the line for a greater good.

Travelling over 1,500 km in 12 days at average speeds of 34km/hr we will trudge through wild forests, over rugged mountains and across barren beaches to cover 70% of this untouched gem of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka in nothing more than a rusty shack on 3 wheels.

Planting trees, teaching children and building schools are just some of the activities we will perform while conquering cultural taboos, haphazard navigational skills and each other’s company.

Our team,“the tuk-aneers” have vowed that this rewarding adventure will not be in vain and have aimed at raising R50,000 for Hotel Hope http://www.hotel-hope.org/

Please take part in this great adventure with us and sponsor us on our quest. Each kilometer covered will support a great cause and with a little help can make a huge difference.

We aim to ensure that every child is brought up in a safe, happy and healthy home so that they can grow up and develop into responsible & positive adults. We have a holistic approach to the problem of orphaned and abandoned children. We realise that we equally need to focus on the cause of the problem and not only on the symptoms. We focus on: BABIES IN NEED: Creating several small family style foster homes for orphaned and abandoned babies; MOTHERS IN CRISIS: Providing support to young mothers facing unplanned pregnancies; SOCIAL ENTERPRISE: Providing jobs and skills development opportunities
