Two dedicated motorcycle enthusiasts try to compete in the 9000 km rally in January, 2018.
The Budapest-Bamako is the biggest charity rally in Africa. In 2009 and 2010 close to 700,000 Euros worth of aid was delivered. A fresh water well was dug in a Mauritanian village. Incubators, sterilization equipment and other medical supplies were given to a free clinic that operated with pre-historic tools in a Bamako slum. Solar panels in villages were erected, bicycles were given to women who have no transportation. The work of schools is supported that rescue childred from day labor.
Charity begins in your heart. Each year the team performing the most outstanding charity work receives the Mother Teresa Charity Award.
Over the past few years the Budapest-Bamako has grown into the largest charity rally in the world. We are the prime example of community to community direct giving. You are free to create your own charity project, raise funds or donations and deliver the gifts. All middlemen are completely eliminated. We will help you to make sure that your gifts reach the right recipients. Be creative, be daring!
Help us promote peace, cooperation and friendship across borders by spreading your love.
This is an event in which we are driving our 2 1980s Suzuki DR600s from Budapest, Hungary all the way to Banjul, Gambia over the course of 2 very intense weeks.
We aim to work together with the AHU.
The AHU are a charity established in 2006 who provide educational and medical equipment (as well as vehicles, radio equipment, schools, pretty much anything else needed) to small towns and villages that need it in Africa. During the event, several large trucks will come along with us and we will deliver these vital supplies to towns and villages on the route.
A part of the funds collected will be spent on fixing our 30-year-old Suzuki DR600 motorcycles, from the remaining amount we'll complete the donations we collect in the meantime.
Our goal is to get as many help we can to the people in need, which we want to do mostly with material donations.
The event is in January 2018, so we have a long way to to get prepared - but we're confident we can get there.
