Wild Nights Out | Matric 2019

Personal message

We are WILD NIGHTS OUT - a program for Matrics from all over South Africa to come together for 6 days in the Cederberg mountains. Matric is the one common 'rite of passage' that South Africans from any backgrounds share. We take a group of school leavers into the mountains as a metaphor of "walking into the unknown" which they are about to do in their own lives. This programme is an experience that supports young people through this transitional time and is an opportunity for them to mark the end of an era, to connect to themselves,  to others and to nature. It supports them taking time to reflect on who they are, what has been, and where they are going. We take a group of 16 students in December, just after their final exams. It's a place to connect with our wide-open spaces, sleep under stars, swim in streams, make new friends all while gently moving through a process developed by a team of expert guides and facilitators.

The cost per student attending is R5,160.

This is made up of: 
- transport for CPT to Cederberg and back
- food basics
- cooking equipment
- safety equipment (sat phone, insurance, medical)
- guides and facilitators
- journals

For 16 students we are therefore raising R82,560.

We are also making contact with adventure companies, outdoor brands, corporate sponsors for assistance here. If you have any suggestions of people/organisations to contact, please do let us know. The more support we can find, the better.

*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be transferred directly to the Rim of Africa Trust.*
